The greenhouse business is one of the fastest growing industries in Alabama as well as in the United States. So, should you become involved? This 12-page publication identifies many of the questions you need to consider before you sow the first seed or purchase the materials to build a greenhouse—not only where is your market, and what kind of business do you want to establish, but also do you have enough resources, and are you flexible enough to adapt as your business grows and changes? Includes illustrations of greenhouse styles and arrangements; guidelines for writing a business plan; a table of sample capital costs for a greenhouse facility; and a list of additional resources to save you many hours and dollars in losses as you consider this growing industry.
