  • OK. So I'm not going to be able to make the board meeting now. have to get some orders finalized and do some number crunching ASAP. 08:52:34
  • More from our trip to Costa Rica. This post is about our fun day doing zip lines in the rain in the rain forest – 14:40:57

Next week will be our first week of shipping poinsettias and we are still shipping out pansies.  In some cases on the same truck.  Over the years the pansy season has stretched out until it overlaps with the poinsettia shipments into Louisiana.  Although this year we are still sending out pansies into Arkansas and Oklahoma since the weather has stayed mild.

Ready List: avail11.13

Please note that this availability includes the poinsettias.  A few of the poinsettias show available numbers but have a comment that says “Sold Out.”  This is because of a buffer to take out the poinsettias that are not up to spec.  This buffer is fluid and may increase or decrease as we go along.  We do this to make sure that we can fill 100% of our orders with the best quality plants we have.
