Poinsettias Nov. 2013 Part 1

I had a few minutes and thought that I would upload a couple of photos for you. I hope I have time to add parts 2 through as many as I can.

These are just about ready and will be gone by the end of next week. Don’t worry we have plenty more for the later weeks.

It’s difficult to get good poinsettia pictures. The sunlight always makes the red look washed out.

Mums and Poinsettias Update for August 16, 2013

I wanted to let every see where we are at with our mums and poinsettias. The mums are doing very well due to the great summer weather we have had here in Arkansas. They are going to be a bit ahead of our usual schedule. Our usual schedule is that the early varieties run behind then they all bloom at once instead of blooming as the early, mid and late season varieties that they are supposed to be.

This year it appears that they are actually going to bloom as they are supposed to. The majority of our fundraisers are set to be pulled and shipped from our mid-season varieties. We are really looking forward to a great looking mum crop.

We just finished planting our first crop of poinsettias on Monday this week then went right into planting the second crop on Wednesday. We should have them all planted by next Tuesday. The really don’t look like much right after they have been planted. The hard part starts right after the planting.

Poinsettias have to be monitored each week to make sure that they are on schedule and if not, we make the necessary changes to the growing to get them back on track. Some people wonder about the cost of poinsettias but when you take into account that poinsettias take 15-17 weeks to grow there is a lot of time and care taken into growing these crops.

These poinsettias will look like…

A Look At Poinsettias Shipping Nov. 19, 2012

Here are some pictures of the poinsettias we are shipping today (November 19,2012). It is cloudy today which is great for taking poinsettia pictures. It is very hard to get good pictures of poinsettias. Sunny days make them appear pale and do not show their true colors.

The poinsettias pictured above were packed up when I went back out and the crew had moved on to the next house shown  below. Today is not even a big day but it is amazing how fast we can clean out a house when we start packing.

New Spring Wave Petunia Medleys Fundraiser

This spring we are featuring the new Wave Petunia Medleys as our spring plant fundraiser. Medleys are just what they sound like, a mix of colors of Wave Petunias in one pot.

We are growing them in a #8 pot with two colors of Wave Petunias per pot. The Wave Petunia Medleys are a great way for gardeners to add a lot of color to flower beds or containers quickly by planting a few big pots instead of a lot of smaller pots.

If you are looking for a easy plant fundraiser for your school’s cheerleading squad, band or sports team to raise money quickly, fundraising with plants is perfect for your organization’s needs. Our Wave Petunia Medleys are also available for your non-profit organization plant sale fundraiser.
