We have been in production since January. All of our annuals are started either from seeds or cuttings.
Our facility in Orient handles all seed production by sowing our own plug trays. Depending on the variety, they are planted into 72 or 288 cell plug trays. It takes on average approximately 3 to 10 weeks to root, with most varieties finishing between 6 to 7 weeks.
Our cuttings are shipped overnight from suppliers all over the world, including Israel, El Salvador, and Guatemala. The cuttings can't take extreme cold, so they are packed well for protection. Depending on the variety, they are then planted into 84 cell plug trays or into liner strips.
See the progression below on some of our cool weather items.
