Spring is Here!!!!

Well that would be in the lab, not outside, burrrrr it is getting me!  In the lab plants must go through stage 3 inside which can take 6-8 weeks then they are planted and must finish as a liner for 8-15 weeks.  So you can see why Spring is now in the lab, actually it started in November.  With the holiday getting plants ready becomes much more tricky so we usually try and work 10 hours days.  This year we have been on a 4 day work week since July but starting in December we are going back to 5.  Hopefully we can keep everyone at 5 days, this will depend on the orders, if they are slim we will go back to 4 days.

We are growing a ton of new products, I have started these in hopes of sparking new sales with new customers and old.  We would like to become the source of all quality liners but also new and unusual plants.  We are working with many people to make this happen but it will take time.  Also we will start a new 12 month ad campaign with NMPro to help us deliver this message and to let people know we are more than just Nandinas!  I am working on our new website that will be released early December....must get to work now!  I think it will really help customers get to know us a little better and it will help eliminate confusion people have with our current site that lumps both of our nurseries together, liners and containers, customers get confused on location and product grown all of the time.  Anyway a sneak peak can be seen here, I must say it is very snazzy, of course i am being bias since I designed it, haha!

Below is a listing of new products we will have in 2010, this is just a start, more to come soon!  Keep an eye on us, we are more than just Nandinas!
