Do you know how much it costs to produce that 4-inch geranium, the 12-inch hanging basket, or the 10-inch poinsettia? Really? If not, how can you knowledgably price your product and allow yourself to stay profitable year around? Charlie, Mike, and Lloyd will help you understand how to account for the range of production and administrative inputs, with associated costs, that can allow you to comfortably and confidently price your product for profitability and growth.
