Re: Gardening Again

Gene, this is the latest we order for the same reason and also because most plants are too far along. We only order at this time from sources that are one day away. The plants can usually handle that much. UPS usually does their pickups in the afternoon. And our UPS driver usually delivers in the morning, so the plants have little time to bake in the truck.

Also, we have time and space constraints. I ordered the maximum we could handle for April and early May arrival. If I didn't order plants now we would have only about 100 pots available for our August sale.

I may still take a chance later this month on the MidOhio supplier for just a couple of flats. They have a clearance sale then and the plants come out to about 39 cents each and arrive in great shape and I've only lost a few plants doing it.

I stop taking incoming plants about now for the same reason I stop shipping out to customers. I do not want the plants to cook in the top of a delivery truck. It gets up over 120 degrees in the top of a UPS truck in summer. I gather you are comfortable ordering wholesale in the summer for growing on?

Congrats on the profitable season Gene. Glad you'll finally have some time for yourself.

Our little MG nursery can only handle so much, so as soon as the May sale is over I order in more so we'll have material for our August sale and some things to start 2007. The June sale plants are those that weren't ready by May. We don't put out for sale anything that's not well-rooted and looking good.
