Retail Nurseryman

Bell Curve

The biomass that was the nursery that you neglected to protect from that nasty frost last winter is getting recycled as greenwaste. Way to go.

There are too many frilly home décor items in your store, but only a few plants. It is a great place to shop for those lacy throw pillows that are too expensive to actually throw and too uncomfortable to actually function as pillows, or candles made from recycled, vegan, green beeswax in a developing third-and-a-half world country that does not enslave bees. Your retail nursery is really just a common boutique that does not bring in enough revenue for rent.

Plants are happy. Customers are happy. Even vegan bees and the hosers are happy! It may be hard to earn a typical overly indulgent living from a retail nursery, but the work is satisfying.

The turnover is reliable and steady. Revenue is good. Who needs to sell so many boutique items while the plants are selling so well? You could actually make a lucrative career out of this. Heck, you could even buy a commercial parcel and open another nursery in the next town.

Yeah, that is Martha Stuart out there with a hose. She could not wait to start a new career at your original retail nursery. Everything is going well at all of your nurseries, and the revenue is very good. Actually, it is great! If vegan bees had money, they would shop at your nurseries.
