Due to the increased lead times in the supply chain of tissue culture plant material, starting July 1st 2022 we will be changing our minimum order quantities from 6 flats to 9 flats of 72 cell material per shipment. In addition Begonias and Coleus will also require a 2 flat minimum per variety per shipment of 72 cell material and a 6 month pre-booking prior to shipment.
Liner Program Details
- Plants may be on limited availability depending on the variety. Not all plants are located in the 2021/2022 catalog.
- Cell flats consist of 72 plugs/tray. (3) three trays can fit into our standard shipping boxes. Although filling a box is optional, we recommend doing so to possibly reduce shipping charges.
- Our minimum order is 6 trays.
Heuchera / Heucherella Early Order Discount Program
In an effort to bring both Heuchera and Heucherella to the mass market place, we had to find a method of taking these varieties from the collector level and making them available to all. We accomplished this by offering a lower input cost for large volume and pre-planned ordering. This makes it easier for our laboratories around the world to better plan for mass production in larger numbers. Lower input costs also make the plants more appealing to the landscape industry allowing them to be used for mass plantings year around.
Unrooted Cutting Program Details
We have partnered with Danziger to produce cuttings from the TERRA NOVA® private stock. They offer the highest quality URCs sourced from their modern elite mother stock facility in Guatemala. Their entire line of unrooted cuttings benefit from the wonderful, sunny, temperate climate. This environment allows for economical, year-round production.
We feel this program has tremendous potential, and will play a major role in the direction of our breeding efforts. We’ll continue to add plants to the current offering, and look forward to this program growing along with your business and ours.
The ideal method of handling cuttings on arrival and prior to sticking is as follows:
If you cannot stick immediately:
- Remove bags of cuttings from shipping boxes.
- Remove cuttings from bags and place in flats.
- Place flats of cuttings in a cooler at 50-55° F.
- Provide humidification to at least 98% relative humidity. If 98% humidification cannot be achieved, do not remove cuttings from bag.
- Provide some light (up to 50 foot candles) in the cooler, if possible.
- Plant within 24 hours.
