Nursery crops are those plant materials generally used for outdoor landscape plantings, including trees, shrubs, vines and other plants having persistent woody stems, and all herbaceous perennials. This course will examine the selection, propagation, growing, handling and marketing of these materials. The course uses an entrepreneurial approach with emphasis on the importance of new plant introductions, and plant and landscaping trends analysis. The course also examines the nursery industry from the standpoint of where it fits into the bigger picture, i.e., the overall “green” industry.
