From the way we were so busy here and from what a lot of you have told us, we all made up some lost ground this week. Typically for us the week after Mother’s Day is when we get to catch our breath. Not so much this week. We weren’t here that late but we had to work overtime to get all the orders out. I hope you all had the same kind of week and have a busier weekend.
Regarding our inventory, as far as I know we have everything keyed in except for a crop each of 1204 and 1801 begonias and some okra and watermelon that are all growing really slowly for some reason. With everything else, what you see in inventory is what we have left. Now I also need to tell you that we have cut some product back that will fill back out and be keyed back in over the next 2-3 weeks. It’s not a lot of product but it is some of the more popular items.
I can’t believe I am already saying this but mums come in a couple of weeks so we will be getting started on fall production soon. If you want to or need to, now is the time to book you fall orders – mums, pansies, kale and all that stuff. We can do custom growing to meet special requests for pansy colors if you need something we don’t grow. Let us know soon so if you know what you need.
In addition to all the colorful products below, we still have tomatoes, cantaloupe, cucumbers, okra, squash and watermelon for all those folks who have not planted their gardens yet.
We tried a new product for us at the request of a customer who I thought was going to buy the trials as they got ready so that they could trial them at his stores. Now he is out of the country for 2 weeks and the 14” Moss Baskets he asked for are ready and no one else there seems to know what I am talking about. So I wanted to see if you were interested in them. We are selling them for $35 each.
Our J6, 1801, 6” and 1 gallon basic annuals are all still looking great.
Our deluxe and premium annuals look great too.
We also have a lot of great combo pots, combo baskets and planters for Memorial Day.
Our hanging baskets look great! (Are you catching on to the common thread here?)
We also still have a good selection of perennials.
