« Plants We Hate | Main | Jerry Baker: America's Master Gardener or Rich Quack? »


If "Burned Out" does the Master Gardener program and likes it, he could look up the nearest land grant university and see if they offer a degree in horticulture. Talking to the faculty could give him an idea of what it would take to get through the program and get into the nursery business as a business owner rather than as a grunt worker. Taking some classes, perhaps part-time while still working, could give him a taste of what he'd be in for.

He might also see if he can rearrange his schedule in such a way to allow him to take a part-time job at a garden center or nursery. A ground-floor job like that would give him a taste of what the business is all about.
