Plant propagation for industry

Hello to everyone!
I'm pretty new to gardening but have been given the task at work t raise about 2000 plants for next summer in a heated poly tunnel. The site is a coal fired coastal power station on the North-Eas coast. We have a big problem with rabbits so I thought growing something lik pelargoniums or/and Begonia from seed. Do I stand a chance as a newbie!? I have grown my own plants before a home in unheated greenhouses,but I've never took on the task on a scal like this before.I'd be most grateful for any hints tips advice tha anyone can give me. which pelargonium type would give the easist/biggest success rate fo plants per seed? how many seeds would I need to raise about 1500-200 plants?
thanks! steven

1) Who assigned you this task?
2) What's the connection between rabbits and the two plants you mentioned?
3) What happens if you aren't successful with this project?

The publicity director at the power station.

He saw a few run-over rabbits out on the highway.

A disaster! The publicity manager won't be able to tell the environmental protesters that the power plant is "green"

Are you attempting to do this organically or with chemical inputs? It's not really very "green" if you're using chemicals to sustain the plants and promote growth. If you want to do this organically, it is possible, but you'll need to do a bit of reseach and establish a program.

Why such small plants? It seems that trees would be more of an off set against the CO2 that the plant releases or do you have to maintain a line of sight?
You may want to look at lasagna gardening. If you laid down your newspapers/cardboard now, where you want the beds to be, add what ever amendments that you may need like bone meal, covered everything with mulch, and added seeds for a green fertilizer, your beds should be ready by May.
Wishing you luck, and hoping you get shut down soon (but not 'till winter is over).
