|Kitayama Brothers - CA Grower since 1948|
2015 Growing Plan:
We just returned from the KB December board meeting where I presented plans for 2015. We are expecting a 5% growth in sales and here is how we hope to accomplish this:
Gerbera Daisies: We will increase gerbera daisies in all types; standards, minis and gerrondos. We are also increasing gardenias, asiatic lilies, stock and mini callas.
About the Same:
Oriental lilies will be about the same, but we will produce less in the summer and more in the fall and winter.
Snapdragons, tulips, lisianthus and iris will stay the same.
New Test Flowers:
We will test a few new items such as astible and anemones.
What we are Not Growing:
The board asked about growing Cannabis. It is still illegal and we are not willing to risk our assets until the Federal Government changes the law.
What do you Suggest we Grow?
Send us your suggestions, if we take your suggestion, we will send you the first box of whatever it is.
Still Thinking about Growing:
Carnations: The board was very encouraging on bringing back a California carnation. Now if we could just find some cuttings…
