It is sure hot today, but we have the promise of rains and cooler temperatures to start the week off throughout the region. That is good news for us! Here are the pictures of the offerings for the upcoming week.
We have plenty of the J6 packed with color. The #4 are looking bright as well.
The #6 color is ready to plant
We have plenty of beautiful cabbage and kale to accent
Some mums are waiting on the cooler temps to really shine
We also have many fall baskets to choose from this week
The fall equinox will be here next week and it will officially be fall. We have the plants to help make it look like fall. Check out these great shots of what we have this week:
We have a very nice selection of J6 annuals and have some veggies as well
Also, the #4 fall plants are looking really good
Lots to offer in the #6
We have some #8 mums to offer that are starting to crack as well as a few #12 mums. #12 decos are ready.
The baskets are looking good
It looks like the forecast is cooling off. I know I am ready for the change. We are getting some good numbers in the pansies this week and the fall color is really starting to show. Here are the pictures for the week of 9-12-16:
Much of the J6 are looking very nice right now. The #4 are coming along as well.
The #6 pots are filling out with good color
We have foliage baskets ready
Some of the #8 mums look like they may crack open next week
Are you ready for the cooler fall temperatures to get here? We sure are. However, we aren’t quite ready for fall to start. We will be closed on Monday Sept. 5 for Memorial. Once we get that one last summer holiday under our belts, we’ll be ready to hit the ground running on Tuesday.
Starting Sept. 6, we’ll have availability for some of our fall plantings. Right now it looks like most of the pansies won’t be ready until the following week, but we can eek out a few that are big enough for some colors. They are all rooted out but the plants need to grow some more. I will update the availability numbers for them again on Tuesday. We should have good availability on the J6 and 1801 pansies for the week of Sept. 12.
We do have some J6 dianthus, petunias, snapdragons and violas that are ready but don’t have a lot of color. They should color up more over the weekend. We also have some 1801 petunias and snapdragons and #6 calibrachoas and a few wave petunias.
It will be a few more weeks until we have mums available. The mum availability will be very fluid and will be changing a lot. I will be doing physical counts a couple of times a week after we pull to cover orders in order to try to come up with more availability.
We have some J6 cole crops and #4 Peace Farm lettuce available as well. Be sure to check out the availability list for everything.
I think that covers everything. Now for the pictures. There should be quite a bit more color showing by next week.
I am waiting until Tuesday to see if the red and white petunias fill in enough to be sellable.
