A Handbook Of Floriculture by S Prasad And U Kumar
Book Summary:

The floral industry is one of the major industries in many developing and underdeveloping countries. Floriculture as an industry began in the late 1800s in England, where flowers were grown on a large scale on the vast estates. The floral industry essentially consists of three major components: the growers, the wholesalers and retailers whose businesss are quite intermingled. The recent trends are more towards eliminating the intermediaries, the wholesalers between the growers and the retailers, so that flowers are made available at considerably low prices.
