If you are planning on growing and selling at least $250 in nursery stock, you will need to obtain a Nursery Grower License
. Nursery stock is any plant that can overwinter outdoors in Wisconsin (trees, shrubs, woody and herbaceous perennials, perennial herbs, bulbs, etc.). If you buy and resell more than $250 of nursery stock each season, you also need a Nursery Dealer License.
