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…

2011 Fall and Winter Fundraisers

Poinsettia Update and Information:  Well, we have almost completely sold out for the 2011 Holiday Poinsettia season.  Thanks to all our Fundraiser Partners!    There are still some 8″ red and a few colors out there in every size but quantities are very limited. 

How do I store my poinsettias before distribution?  I have received several calls about poinsettia care lately and thought I’d post some helpful information.  When you receive your poinsettias you need to unbox them and unsleeve them so they can breathe. Check the soil. If the soil is dry you need to water them. If the soil is moist, they can be left alone for the time being. It’s very important not to over water a holiday poinsettia. Also, if it is necessary to store the poinsettias in a facility over the weekend, make sure the temperature doesn’t go below 68 degrees. Interestingly enough, Holiday Poinsettias are native to Mexico and don’t like the cold!

Mum Update 9-14-11: We experienced a heat delay on the mums with the record heat we had this summer. The heat delays the blooming of the mums. We expect to be 1-2 weeks later having color on our mums this fall. Please contact your sales rep if you have any questions regarding this.

Now is the  time to get your order in for our fall mum fundraisers and winter poinsettia fundraisers. Order early. Quantities are limited.
