It’s the first Friday in March and we have snow on the ground. BUT, the next ten days look great and we will start digging next week! There is plenty of very nice material still available, so check the availability to see if we can fill any holes in your needs. We have specialty material like Kalmia and Stewartia, and bread and butter material like Magnolia, Hydrangea and Rhododendron. It’s worth checking!
The availability of trucks seems to be a moving target. We have a number of our reliable carriers back on board. However, if you know of a trucking company that you would like us to use to deliver your product, please let us know as soon as possible. This way we can contact them about delivering your material giving them plenty of time to schedule the delivery so your material arrives when you want it.
If you prefer to schedule your own loads and keep the trucking company to yourself, that’s ok too. Just call and coordinate a Will Call date and your material will be ready when your truck arrives.
I know it may not seem like it yet, but spring will be here in a few short weeks. Have you reviewed all of your acknowledgements and found what is missing from your orders? How about those order additions for recently signed contracts? We still have a great selection of material available to fill the holes in your needs.
Our work crews will be back soon. We will be digging and loading trucks as soon as the weather allows. Spring will be here before we know it. If you don’t have your order placed or are waiting to add to it, the clock is running and the available inventory is shrinking. Don’t wait! Give us a call.
We also need to hear from you if you have an order placed and have not let us know what week you would like delivery. We try hard to meet your expectations. Some weeks are filling quickly so we need to hear from you soon
The Ohio Department of Agriculture produced this short feature on Herman Losely and Son Nursery located in Perry, Ohio.
It seems like spring is far off, but it will be here before you know it. We honor the requested ship dates we receive by trying to hit them as close as possible. Unfortunately, every year we receive too many last minute requests. Our staff does a great job, but they can only dig, pull and load so many truckloads of material each week. Please help us to have your material ready when you want it by giving us a requested ship date as soon as possible.
I know you have been hearing for a while that plants will be short, but call around and check availabilities. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to find the plants you need.
Now is the time to review your acknowledgements to be sure your needs are covered for the upcoming spring. We still have a good selection of Unique and Specimen material as well as the bread and butter material available to fill the gaps in your needs. But they are going fast! Please don’t hesitate to call your sales representative.
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. We will be closing at noon on Christmas Eve and remain closed until January 4th, 2016.

For those of you who have placed a Spring 2016 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.
