The Florida Bedding Plant Industry


  • Smith, Cecil N.

Bedding plants constitute an increasingly important segment of Florida's complex of ornamental industries. A survey of traditional bedding plant growers showed more than 33 acres in the culture of these plants in 1975. Sales were estimated at $2.6 million in 1975, with a USDA report showing a rise to a $4 million level in 1978. Fall and spring are the major marketing seasons for Florida bedding plants. The major outlets to which products are marketed were (1) chain and department stores and (2) garden centers and retail nurseries.
