Welcome Chad from Ottawa, Canada. I just took a look at your Greenhouse website. I think perhaps you will be able to teach us a few things. Smile

Hi, Chad! From your neighbor to the south, Ohio! glad you\'re here I bet you will have a lot of insight for the rest of us, as a professional.  I am very small scale, just last year started the All New SFG method in some re-purposed window boxes.  

What do you have planned?  Do you have a square foot garden?  Are you getting inquiries from customers?  One thing I can say is this....Super Coarse Vermiculite.  I would order it from you.. Hard to get.  Very very valuable to us SFGers.

Hope to hear from you!  And please visit your regional thread, N&C Midwest!  And pictures, please?

I Binged Barson's Greenhouse - humongous operation! Wouldn't it be great to find everything for SFG in one place!

Knock! Knock! sanderson.  I hope you know what I mean?  It is a British expression as far as I know.

I don't know what it means and tried to look it up.
British Slang.

1. One of a combination of dealers who bid together, rather than against each other, at an auction, and later resell the purchases among themselves.
2. An auction at which this is done.
3. the sale of merchandise recently obtained by a dealer at an auction.

My interpretation as slang ," Let's hope we have good luck."
