2018 Recap & A Look At 2019

Tricolor Mum

Hello everyone,

I first want to apologize for not posting much here. Work around the farm has been hectic since my last post in August of last year. Sometimes you run the farm and sometimes it runs you.

I wanted to briefly go over our last years programs. We had a good fall mum season. We sold out of our fundraiser mums in August last year so be sure to get your order in early.

Our poinsettia season went well too. We promote our #6 Red Poinsettia for fundraisers and those are our most popular but the #8 Red Poinsettias have been selling out first for the last few years. If you are planning on doing a #8 Poinsettia fundraiser be sure to get your order in early.

There are no major changes to our fundraising programs this year. There were a few pricing tweaks, but other than that it’s basically the same.

We are making a renewed effort to keep our fundraising groups posted with pictures and updates.

You can follow our PlantForProfits Facebook page for what I hope will be regular posts about our mums and poinsettias and current availabilities.

You can also follow Parks Brothers on Instagram.

Thanks to all of you and be sure to let us know if you have any questions.

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.
