OK. Your mom probably already loves you, but she gave birth to you, put up with all your teenage antics and drama and probably babysits for you more than she ought to so she definitely deserves at least as hanging basket. Actually she deserves a complete yard make over like you see on HGTV. Why am I telling you this? Well, all of us sons and daughters will be swarming your garden center for plants this week for mom, and we have a lot of great looking plants for you to sell. Just take a look at the pictures below. You need some of all of this for garden center. Before we proceed, I need to say this:

I, Jason Parks, on behalf of all of the Parks family and the staff here at Parks Brothers want to offer you our apology for all the problems we have had with deliveries this season. I want to assure you that we are working diligently to improve the situation. For all of you who did not get your deliveries before the weekend, we appreciate your flexibility and thank you for accepting the late deliveries. I hope that we will be able to do a better job for everyone next week. It has only been by the grace of God that we have been able to get some loads out at all. We loaded several trucks this week that we did not have drivers for and thankfully God blessed us with drivers at the last minute. We hope to do better next week and as I have said, we are working to get the resources we need to get the loads delivered. Once again we do apologize for these problems, and thanks again for your understanding and patience. We do know how important it is for you to have product to sell, and we understand your frustrations if we are late. The shortage of drivers has been getting progressively worse each year, but we were completely caught off guard by the extent of this year’s shortage. Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or complaints. I will be happy to talk to you about it.

We are starting to get low on quite a bit of product and are out of some items. We currently have baskets, deco pots, color bowls and succulent bowls available which have always been popular Mother’s Day items. Additionally, we have good availability on our standard IGC items like packs, 1801’s, #4.5’s and #6’s. We are starting to run out of a lot of the premium gallon items. I will be doing a lot of counting this weekend and updating availability numbers so don’t be surprised if you see some changes or if some items you order that have low availability numbers are not there. I will do my best to make it as accurate as possible.
