It is difficult for a small-scale greenhouse operation to earn income with traditional bedding plants such as marigolds, petunias, impatiens, tomatoes and bell peppers. These plants are mass produced in huge, fully automated greenhouse operations. Regular bedding plants are offered for sale at all garden centers, department stores and supermarkets. Consumers can easily purchase them at relatively cheap prices. Live herb plants are not so readily available. Growers can charge higher prices that generate more profit for herb plants.
