We are beginning to see some color in the greenhouses. It’s not much but spring has started. This post is mainly for all of you down south where it is not so cold. I am not sure what to say about spring. We are in a quandary as to whether or not we should keep production on schedule or start trying to hold some of it back in case March is cold. We haven’t really had a winter so I guess winter has decided to show up late. Either way, here are some pictures of what we have ready or close to ready.
Frist off we have some color in our Ageratum and Impatiens in the J6. We will be updating the inventory Monday because we have Marigolds, Petunias and other items that we think will be ready later next week that are not in inventory yet. We also have some of our #4.5 Annuals ready along with our #6 Marigolds that are showing color in their buds. They will be blooming soon too.
Our 1801 accent plants look good.
In addition to these onions, strawberries, eggplant, peppers and tomatoes that are shown, we also have a full inventory of cole crops and onion in 1204’s ready.
We have some ferns ready along with our Wave Petunias that are in full color and look great. Not shown are our foliage baskets that are ready so be sure to look at the availability.
I said this last year and I will say it again, I think the Burgundy Velour Wave Petunia will be a best seller this year. The Red Velour Wave Petunia (above next to the neon rose) is a good color to and a much better red than the Easy Wave Red.
We can pull some of our Hardy Ferns next week as well.
Here are some of the items that are ot quite ready yet. A few of them will probably be ready by the end of next week.
This is a new color that you may have seen in the trade magazines. It’s call Johnny Flame. I think it will be a good seller too when it gets ready.
