US (MI): Record spring for nurseries, but not without its challenges

Nurseries in West Michigan are having a record spring. This was presented in a YouTube video posted on the YouTube page of Wood TV 8. Reporter John Domol visited Sawyer Nursery in Blendon Township, a company that is growing 6.5 million plants this year and they are planning to sell all of them. 2021 is not without its challenges though, a shortage of labor and trucking have pushed the selling season back a bit. They were down about 30 seasonal workers this year, out of the 150 workers they normally would have, Tom Kowieski, owner and CEO of Sawyer Nursery, said.  But as long as the weather is nice and the demand is high, he expects people to continue to fall in love with plants.
