Title: Are there production timing guides for native plant production?
Answered by: Joe Marcus

QUESTION:

We need growers timetable guide for native plants from seed to salable size. Any already published guides out there?

ANSWER:

While there are any number of books that deal with native plant propagation, we know of no guides of the type you're describing which deal with the production timing of natives.
