Make It Stop Raining!

montego snapdragons Hello,

What do you think of spring so far? My sales people are sweating their numbers when they compare them to last year, but I’ve told them that it’s apples to oranges. We can’t compare an early spring to a late spring. The big question is will the sales catch up? I think they will. Based on the chatter on Twitter and Facebook, there are a lot of people who are ready to garden if the weather would just cooperate.

There is a freeze forecasted for a lot of our areas we ship to along and north of Interstate 40. Some areas have snow forecasted for Monday. Snow in April??? We are in another one of those new normal springs. Basically, my definition of a “new normal” spring is a spring that is completely different from the previous 3-4 springs.

All the weather talk aside, we are really hustling to keep the plants looking good. This has been a hard growing spring. There has been too much cool and cloudy weather. Even with all that the plants look great. We are into some new crops with lighter color on several items. Some items are now available that have not been ready yet this spring like the #4.5 New Guinea Impatiens and #12 Trailing Petunia Combo baskets. We are running behind on our #12 combo baskets due to the weather.

The 1204, J6’s and 1801 are split between good color on the last crop and light color on the next crop. We are all over the board on color for next week. Be sure to watch the comments. I will be updating them early next week to keep them as current as possible.
