Poinsettias Week of Nov. 21, 2011


All of these shipped out today. Coming to a fundraiser near you!

Gearing Up For Poinsettia Fundraiser Season

Poinsettia season is almost here. Our poinsettias are looking great. We grew have almost 86,000 pots of poinsettias on the floors now. Our sales team has done a great job selling them. As of about noon today this is all that we have left.

695    6" Merlot
522    6" Ice Punch
653    6" White
676    6" Marble
136    6" Maroon

1475  8" Red
  816  8" Maroon
277  8" White

  87  10" White
106  10" Pink

The Merlot is a dark red with an “oak” type leaf. I think it is my new favorite color. It is very close in color to the Maroon which is another darker red color. Here are some pictures of what the poinsettias look like this week. It is hard to get good pictures of poinsettias. On sunny days the colors look faded out. Ice Punch is another great poinsettia with punch colored leaves and a creamy-white frosted center.

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.
