It has been a while since I have posted anything to our newsfeed here on Plants For Profits. I apologize for that. Sometimes it just gets too busy to keep everything up to date. I am sure you know how that feels.
Our mum crops is looking great. The cooler weather this summer has causes some of the early varitieties to flower earlier than usual. However, the majority of you have orders for late September or early October. I don’t anticipate any issues with the mums allocated for those weeks. They appear to be pretty much on schedule over all. We have plenty to pick from so there will not be any issues with filling your orders.
If you are a new fundraiser, the pictures below will give you a general idea about the size of the #12 mums. These early varieties are a little bit smaller than usual but the later varieties which will be used to fill your orders are bigger and up to spec.
Please note the bloom stage of these pots. Again for those of you who are new, this is the bloom stage we try to ship where the buds are just cracking open to some light color showing. We strive to never ship any mums that don’t have some color showing. Most of the time we are able to do that but occasionally we have to ship some that have buds with no color showing. In those cases we have taken steps to identify the colors for you ahead of time.
Please contact us is you have any questions. The mums are coming on fast and time it running out for you to pre-sell your fundraiser so get your order in soon and get started sell those mums!
For those of you doing our poinsettia fundraiser, we have not updated the forms online and will try to get that done soon. In the meantime please contact us for any forms you might need. You still have time to get those orders in. Please remember that we do sell out quickly once school has started and the orders start coming in fast.
