Power

Wholesale nurserymen sometimes get to influence market trends by growing and marketing plants before retail nurseries and landscapers ask for them. Really though, the most common types of landscapers (the “worst” types) have the most influence, which is why there are so many London plane trees and crape myrtles out there! Sadly, the best wholesale nurserymen who exercise their power to grow the best quality plant material are at a disadvantage to those who factory grow inferior material in order to capitalize on faster turnover. There really is not much power in the wholesale nursery industry. Believe it or not.
