stepables I am please to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Under A Foot Plant Co. to be an authorized grower of Stepables®.  Starting in February of next spring we will have Stepables® available. 

At this time we plan on growing the Stepables® in #4 (true 4”) purple pots that will be packed 10 to the flat.  Each pot will have the Stepables® tag and have a bar-coded sticker on the pot.  The Stepables® program comes complete with point of purchase materials that includes signs, a Happy Guy, a brochure holder and brochures.

We have picked out 31 varieties to grow.  We did quite a bit of research with plant people in the South to make sure all the varieties we chose will hold up in the heat and humidity we have.  Here is a list of the varieties we have chosen.  We would love to hear your opinion on these varieties especially if you think that they are not a good choice for the south!
