Mr. Lewis will be offering Pre-Finished Poinsettias this year.
These orders are due by next Thursday, May 24th.
Pre-Finished Poinsettias will already be potted in 6in pots by Lewis Farms. These will not include support rings and will not be pinched. They will be planted around the beginning of August giving a jump on the growing season for those that don't want to wait until late August to start your Poinsettias. There is a higher cost of production due to labor, pot, and soil.
These Poinsettias will be delivered along with the other fall plugs at the regularly scheduled times and places.
Mr. Lewis hopes this will enable the teachers to get a critical jump on production and give them an opportunity to instruct your students in pinching the plants. Having 2 to 3 weeks more growing time will cause your finished poinsettia pots to be larger and showier and of better quality in the end.
See attached order form and let me know if you have any questions.
