marketing – including One Hundred Ways to Add Value. Then the
Resources section lists sources on cultivation, plant species, sustainability, associations
& cooperatives, education & training, and contract manufacturing. Appendices cover
nursery & greenhouse establishment and plant toxicity. You'll find Indices

broadly applicable to most temperate and boreal regions outside Canada which
share many common or similar plant species. This includes the
northern US border states and Alaska, and areas outside North America.
