Before you can grab a part of the nursery industry, there is some information you should keep in mind about starting a small plant nursery business. Costs Starting a small nursery requires a greenhouse to protect plants from cold weather, materials to grow and maintain plants, personnel to monitor the plants and maintain the grounds, equipment such as a sprinkler system and start-up funding to cover your costs while you wait for your first product to bloom. Small nurseries will use growing methods known as "above ground container" or "pot in pot" methods, according to the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.
Helxine soleirolii Other names: Originally introduced as an ornamental plant, from Corsica, it is now widespread in the British Isles and is usually regarded as a pestilent weed due to its creeping habit and an ability to resist destruction. Small fragments of the stem can take root.
In the right place it makes excellent ground cover and is grown indoors as well; there are yellow- and whitish-leaved varieties. It prefers moist soil and partial shade, spreading rapidly using pink thread-like stems.
The foliage is killed by frost, but it regrows in the spring. The round, bright green leaves have bristly hairs. The pink-tinged, white flowers are about 1mm in diameter and appear from May to October. Scrape off the mat and try to remove all of the fragments.
A deep mulch over the area should kill any missed pieces. It is very difficult to remove from the lawn by cultural methods.
Try raking it out, but be careful not to spread it to unaffected areas. Then feed the grass and allow it to grow longer for a while to out-compete the MYOB. A tight, strong-growing sward should win in the end! It is resistant to selective weedkillers used for treating the lawn, it may be nesessary to kill the grass as well using Glyphosate and resow or patch in some turf when the MYOB has gone.
Crushing the tissues by trampling it will increase the uptake of the herbicide.To effectively compete in a cut-throat world, in-plants must learn to operate like any other business, concentrating on cost, quality and customer service.
