have also created an e-group where members listing their
business in GreenPatio.Com can interact with each other.
The e-group will be very useful in reducing the time lost
in sourcing plants. Whenever a member has a requirement
for plants which he cannot fulfill himself or from his known
sources, he can post his requirement to the group. Any member
meeting his requirement can write back about the availability
of that particular plant. This way, members can look for
plants beyond their known sources. Similarly, members having
excess stock can reach out far beyond their known sources
to sell their plants.
