Would you like to grow and sell native trees?
There is a large and increasing demand for native trees and shrubs grown from locally collected seed.
However, there are very few local tree nurseries in Powys and Wales producing these local provenance trees.
If you are interested in growing and selling trees, some examples of the basic resources required are listed below, although these are not set in stone:
Skills – Aptitude and enthusiasm are as important as experience of growing plants. Experience of growing trees is not essential, as some advice and training is available from this project.
Land – ¼ acre is probably the minimum area required to start effective commercial production
Time – especially for seed sowing in spring and seed collection in autumn.
