    1. 6pks
    2. 4in and 6″
    Last year you guys had polemonium 1 gal. We sold them well and this year you didn’t have them..

  • jason:

    Thanks for taking the time to help us out. As for the polemonium we have already added it back in for next spring. You weren’t the only one who missed it.

  • We love the 4″ flats and the 6″ pots for the special plants. Our favorite annuals and perennials are from Proven Winners. They always have cool new stuff that we put in planters. I will do a little research and see what other fun plants I can find to add to your list for next spring. Thank you so much for asking our input.

  • jason:

    Proven Winners does have some really neat plants. How do they hold up in your area?

  • jason:

    For anyone who leaves a comment after 4:30 pm central time, I will be gone to a local Chamber of Commerce business function, but will swing back through to check for any comments waiting moderation. So don’t get discouraged if your comment does not pop up immediately. If I doesn’t go through tonight, it will go through tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • Terry Britt:

    We use the 4 packs for most all bedding and veggies. I do like the special plants in your 4″ rounds. I try to grow our own stuff in the same size pots so we are all uniform when we sell.

    WE always love new plants on your list as well. Thanks for all your hard work.

  • glen reeder:

    I had real success with the 4.5 and 6″ pots. 6pk sales lagged behind. I found shoppers wanted the instant full pot look. The mixed color calibrachoas hanging baskets were a huge success. (More please.) I know everyone wants to get their flowers earlier and earlier. But I believe the Vinca and several other heat loving plants fail in great numbers if planted out too early. Maybe a second crop for the patient gardener would help.?? The same goes for the fall mums, there color time is shortened by the late summer/early fall heat in this area. Otherwise you are doing a great job. Have a great 2009.

  • Matthew & Lora Weatherbee:

    1. We sell all basic annuals in 4″ 1801s. Now no one evens asks for 6-packs or 4-packs anymore. Just seems easier to manage them and keep them looking good on the shelf. My request would be a larger selection of 4″ basics.

    4. How about sunpatiens? Customers are asking for them. Just got back from Dallas Arboretum trial gardens. Ecke sunpatiens seem far superior. Full sun in Dallas heat. I will email photos to you.

  • Lisa:

    I don’t sell a lot of 4 pks, and 6 pks – the ones that I get in 4 and 6 pks, I break and put in 4″ rounds for later in the year, when a customer loses the ones they bought too early in the season, and by that time mine are bigger and healthier. I would love more new stuff, and some orange and black pansies! I can’t find them anywhere. I have people ask about them alot. New and kind of funky works for me! Thanks for asking what we think, it’s a novel idea.

  • Teresa:

    1. We like 6-packs better but, we’ve sold the 4’s “o.k.” 4″ Basic and 4.5″ premium sell very well here. Especially the unusual stuff. I had to get the Diamond Frost Euphorbia elsewhere. You didn’t grow it this year. Also the Fiber Optic grass. Can you grow them next year? Purple Fountain Grass and Little Bunny in 4″ too please…..Sold out almost immediately of the “Firecracker” plant. I’d love to have more Cuphea varieties…”Bat-Face” is one.
    2. Geraniums..4.5″ and 10″…Calibrachoa is such a big seller in just about any size..mostly 4.5″ for all the above.
    3. See #1.
    4. Ditto.
    5. Get more customers up our way so I can get re-orders easier….
    6. I also sold out right away of the mixed color Calibrachoa. 12″ baskets and 12″ Deco. How about some nice 4th of July Deco Pots?..I made some up of Red Pentas, Diamond Frost Euphorbia, and Blue Evolvulous…add a little Osmocote and WOW…Red Geranium, white Nemesia and Evolvulous was nice too. Everyone loves the Mediteranean (did I spell that right 🙂 Vinca. Can we please get that in 4″ basic ????? hhmmm, please. I will let you know if I think of anything else. Overall…VERY nice, my customers constantly commented on our quality and variety. Thanks Guys!

    I forgot about the Heirloom vegetables…..Keep ’em coming!!!!
