I am sitting here at school working towards a double bachelor's degree. One in Ornamental Horticulture and another in Film and Multimedia. I know that Film student and Horticulturist don't really have anything in common, but those are my interests and a career in either would bring me much satisfaction.

That is where the question lies. I was curious about the success of those who have Greenhouses and grow and sell plants for a living. I have made a poll asking how the economy is for Greenhouse owners. As a poll it will be left anonymous and no one has to divulge any personal information.
I was wondering if I should only get my bachelor's in Horticulture and just keep attending classes for multimedia. Or if it is safer economically for me to keep on receiving my bachelors in Multimedia making a career for me in Digital Art Design and keep greenhouses and plants to a hobby?
So, for those of you whose Greenhouse(s) are their only source of income, how possible is it to provide for the needs of a family? Will I be able to sustain a living for my wife and future children if I had a personal business, worked very hard, and grew and sold plants?
I know financial outcome varies on which plants you sell, your customers, employees, and business ethics but on an average do you have success in sustaining an income?
Apparently, I cannot create a poll. I have to have authority to do so. Hmm, I hadn't noticed that. In other forums you can. So, I understand if no one wants to post their information to this thread, but if anyone has any advice on the matter I would be much appreciated.
