It has been a while since I have posted anything. I have been swamped with a lot of little projects that seem to take more time to get done than they should. Since I can’t seem to find the time to post during the week, I am typing this on my new iPad from home while I lounge here comfortably In my bed.
For the record the iPad is probably the coolest and most innovative gadget to come along in a while and well worth the money.
Now that I’m finished geeking out, on to the mums. All the mums are planted and looking good. We have received a lot of rain the last week or so which is good for them but too much of a good thing can be bad. So we are going to hit them with a fungicide drench and a fertilizer boost this week. More than likely all the rain has leeched out all the nitrogen from the pots.
We finished planting our fall trial items on Friday. The most promising of the trial items are the new black petunias from Ball. Here is a link http://link
Our first planting of calibrachoas will plant this week.
Also last week we stuck the first batch of poinsettias. Actually it was the second batch because Ecke sent 2000 cuttings a week early. Our next batch is supposed to be here tomorrow (Monday the 12th). We also had a mix up with the sales person and the poinsettia supplier and had an order change that did not get processed. We got most of it worked out and the sales rep did a great job taking care of the mistake, but we are ending up with about 5000 extra poinsettias this year.
My sales team will have to work extra hard to move those but it was their decision to take them. They are good and I have no doubt that they can move the extras.
That’s all I had for now. This post was really just an exercise in blogging from my new iPad! Talk to you later and stay cool.
