Getting Ready for the Holiday

Walking around the farm, we are gearing up for the Valentine rush

We had forecasted this year would be down as a result of the Saturday holiday, and we planted accordingly.  Hindsight is 20/20 and we probably should have grown a bit more as we are currently sold out of Gerberas, Lisianthus, Starfighters, Pink Orientals and Snapdragons.  We have tulips and novelty items to sell: talk to your KB rep to see what we have.  

Here is a picture of the warehouse, you can still see the floor space, 
so you know we haven’t gone into full production yet.

Our grower Jimmy Zheng is standing in front of his lily crop.  
We are sold out, so thank you for ordering your lilies this Valentine.  
Oriental lilies will continue to be in short supply for the remainder of the year, 
because of the unstable bulb supply and a backlog of containers at the container ports 
due to a longshoreman strike.  We will do our best to supply our customers.

As for the Valentine holiday, take it one day at a time, it will be over before you know it.  Then you will have just enough time to prepare for Women’s Day on March 8th!
