Young Plant Growers Weigh In On Crop Gains, Sales Trends And More

Almost 100 young plant producers of varying sizes participated in Greenhouse Grower’s 2015 Young Plant Grower Survey. Conducted this past summer, the survey asked growers questions addressing how many plants they will have available to sell this year, how the plants will be sold, which crop categories are growing and fading and more.

This year’s survey analysis includes a ranking of the nation’s 20 largest young plant growers and the most important issues they are dealing with, including labor (link to Laura editorial here). For more facts and figures from the survey, check out the slideshow.
