We sell either clones or seed starts.
• Your starter plant supplier or seed supplier should help you with this process. Different varieties produce different results. Some things to mention to your starter plant supplier would be:
We will deliver the plants to your field ourselves, with our driver on our truck (or rented truck). If you have any issues, they can be resolved right on the spot with our driver present.
Your plants will arrive in 72 cell trays. Each plant will be fully rooted and will have experienced 2-3 weeks of rooting time and an additional week of ‘hardening off’ so that your plants will be ready to go right out into the field.
You have the option of picking up your plants at our greenhouse or we deliver the plants right toy our field at a day and time that we coordinate with you.
Since delivery to the field requires some coordination and often involves changes due to weather or preparedness in the field, we offer complete logistics services for an additional .05 cents per plant. This includes working directly with the farmer on quantities to be delivered per day throughout the planting period.
One benefit of working with a company that provides starter plants and also handles the logistics is that if you run into difficulties preparing your field, we can hold the plants back in the greenhouse until you are ready (within reason).
If plants are already shipped and you can’t plant right away, we suggest you find a shady area in the field to store them until you can plant.
We suggest checking the plants every morning for water. Since they are rather large plants in a relatively small soil plug, you will need to have a water source nearby to keep the plants watered. On really hot and sunny days, plugs may need water twice per day until planted.
Our credit terms are designed to where the final payment is is due within 14 days of the delivery. This allows the farmer enough time to identify any issues that may arise in the field after planting. We are known to visit the field of farmers shortly after they have planted to make sure the plants are off to a good start. Your success is our success. If we work together in the early days after initial field planting, we can ensure plant success together.
