One of the things that make the Green Industry a great business to work in is that it is made up of family businesses. Our family wishes your family a Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. To give the opportunity for our family to enjoy the holiday season, we will be closing at noon on Friday, December 23rd and will reopen on Tuesday, January 3rd.
Once the holiday season is over, stop by and see us at the following trade shows:
Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) – January 11 – 13
Booth: 2310 – 2312
Midwest Green Industry Xperience (MGIX – formerly CENTS) – January 16 – 18
For those of you who have placed a Spring 2017 order, you should be receiving your acknowledgment in the mail shortly. Please review what you have been acknowledged. Demand is high and supplies are low on some plants, so pay special attention to any size or variety substitutions. Those of you who have not placed your order, we encourage you to do so sooner than later.
All orders received by Wednesday at noon will be part of the allocation process for Spring 2017 orders. We will run oversold reports on Monday morning, 11/28. Once we start running the oversold report, all orders we receive after we start will be dated and time stamped to be entered in the order they are received after allocation is complete. Don’t be left out. You still have time to get your order in and be part of the allocation.
Many of you have your spring 2017 order placed. Thank you. To those of you who don’t, please get it in by Monday, November 21st. That is the day we start the allocation process for spring orders. There are plenty of very nice plants still available. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to fill some of your needs.
The beautiful fall weather is still holding on. As a result, many of you are still working and have not turned in your spring 2017 order. We will be allocating over-sold material at the end of the month and acknowledging spring orders in early December. Please have your order in by November 18th to be sure you are part of the allocation process.
The photo of these Hydrangea pan. ‘Fire Light’ #3 was taken this morning. There still is color that can be planted to make your customers happy. Don’t give up planting yet. You have weeks before the season ends. We have the plants to help you finish fall strong.
You remember the old marketing program? “Fall is for Planting.” It’s still true today. Our containers are still looking great and the B&B are ready to dig. We will have them ready so you can make money on plants.
