We’ve all seen more than one nursery or garden center. And many of us do regular business with them. But how important is this to California’s economy? Across the state the industry employs about 190,000 people with a total annual economic impact of $11.3 billion.
That’s a lot of plants, which do a lot more than beautify our homes and businesses. The nursery industry also supports California agriculture by providing the plants necessary to produce the state’s high quality specialty crops. We’re often the place it all starts.
You might also be surprised to learn that nursery and flower production happens in 55 out of 58 CA counties. That’s a unique style of agriculture because it thrives alongside urban centers.
