Could anyone direct me to a source for information on the national
and/or international size of markets for (relatively) obscure plants?
Not major commodities like wheat, rice, corn, barley, etc but more
along the lines of bedding plants, annuals, herbs and seeds.
Does there exist, for example, a listing of the amount of money spent
on/the market size of (picking a random example) Lobularia maritima
Any on-line or library resources would be most appreciated. My
agricultural economics (economic agriculture?) is poor so any help
would be appreciated.

the last issue had some very good stats on the break down on what was
spent on cut flowers and annauls and perennilas and potting plants.
