Wow this season has been a crazy one with rain and bugs and mushrooms like they get every year in Seattle! Thanks for working with us! If you like, I will collect, clean and store your baskets at no charge, just let me know when you are ready!
In preparation for the 2010 growing season, you have choices.
1-Choose colors, plants now and pre-pay before Nov 15th for the deepest discounts and to hold the 2009 pricing. Just ask me and I’ll put an estimate together for you!
2- Give me an idea of what you would like to do next year and give me a deposit to hold the 2009 rates. We can finalize later and pricing will depend on how far in advance we plan.
3- We can just figure it all out next year!
Keep this schedule in mind: I pre-order premium plants mid-November to cut costs I pass on. I pre-order again in December/January for a nice discount! I start some of my own plants in February and grow them in a greenhouse for 4 months before delivery. Beginning in March, I design and plant baskets and planters for Mothers’ Day week delivery in most areas, June in Park City/Eden/Parley’s Summit.
You’re best pricing is now through November 15th and I will let you know when that will change.
I would love feedback on what you loved and what you would like to do differently. Every season has some things that work better than others. Wave Petunias didn’t do as well as Cascades, so that is the main reason I am ordering earlier. They are premium plants. Bacopa was stellar this year as were the osteospermums and many varieties of the food plants, including the Heirloom Tomatoes.
We are also working on growing food for the homeless in Ogden and may have a facility to continue this effort through the winter months. This will also allow us to have your baskets filling out by delivery! Yay!
So what would you like to do for next year and would you like me to care for your baskets at no charge? Do let me know so I can schedule pick-ups the next couple of weeks.
Thanks again for a great 2009 season! Roxy, Tegan, Josh, Ian, Jennifer and the crew!
