Demand v. Supply – Who’s Winning and A New Availability

Since the only reason you are reading this is for the new availability, here it is:  avail-4.16

Production for most greenhouses are based on sales history and bookings.  Sales have been good the last several years for us and we planned for a good year plus 16% (which is a great year).  But this year demand has left supply in the dust on a lot of items.

We have been hearing that a lot of growers are out of product.  I don’t believe it.  I think they are out of a few key items that the garden centers need like begonias or geranium baskets or tomatoes.  So even though they (and us too) are out of a few key items, we all have hundreds of other items ready that are beautiful.

A year like this one only comes along once every 5-7 years.  A high pressure stalled out right on top of us and the weather has bee perfect for the last two weeks for every area we ship to.  It’s been great, crazy, hectic and perfect.

Alas, the rain moves in today but with out any sever weather threat, and we have a small chance of rain every day for the next week which brings me back to supply and demand.  For some of our vegetables, demand has finally out run supply this week.  We are temporarily out of some key vegetables until the middle of next week.

Take a look at the availability, if you don’t see what you need, give us a call and we can let you know when to expect the next crop to be ready.

Begonias are another demand item that has left supply in the dust.  We have more coming and will do our best to get them ready as soon as we can while still maintaining our top quality.  Same goes for several of our baskets.  Our next and last crop of 1204 tomatoes will hopefully be ready as early as next Wednesday or as late as Friday.
