truck vs. low bridgeI have a little bit more time today to work on the blog. A big THANK YOU to all our customers for you allowing us to provider your stores with our color. We really appreciate you and want to do the best we can to fulfill all you spring needs.

Once again this week, being able to get trucks and drivers has contributed to some problems but we have managed to work through all that. Although the last week or so has not been with out it’s challenges and one big trucking hiccup.

This spring our availability have been all over the place. Crops have not been very cooperative in getting ready when they were supposed to. We have been about 50-50 on that. Half of them got ready on schedule and the other half were early or late or in once case both.

As usual, hanging baskets have been THE items this spring. We have not been able to keep enough Calliope Dark Red Geraniums, Calibrachoas, Wave Petunias or Santa Cruz Begonias in stock. We are looking into ways to be able to increase production on those items for next spring.

Other hot items have been the #4.5 Bliss Begonias, #4 Herbs, Succulent Bowls, Quart perennials, #12 Confetti Garden baskets and #6 Confetti Gardens. Fortunately, we will still have some of these available for the next couple of weeks plus a lot more great looking items. We have had to skip over partial crops and go on to the next one. We are cutting back and trimming what we can and hope that sales keep going for at least a week or two after Mother’s Day so that we can sell what we are cutting back.

Here’s some of what we will have ready next week. NOTE: We will have another planting of 1204 vegetables that will be ready around the middle to end of next week.
