Besides, most websites dealing in commercial gardening materials provide appropriate instructions and display images online.

Farmers' Bazaars

There is no better source of such information barring the growers. They can provide you with all the details you require.

They could help you out with sourcing commercial garden resources locally and direct you towards suppliers who offer the best deals.

However, you could always ask them in a general way about the various hothouses and the diverse kinds of growing methods and the growers may be only too willing to flaunt their knowledge.

Agricultural Cooperatives

You can always become a member of the agricultural supply cooperatives, which not only lowers the cost but you also can get the information from the members. The Southern States Cooperative in the US supplies commercial gardening materials and fertilizers, besides other supplies.
