KB Holiday Report

Happy Mother’s Day 2015

Just a quick update on Mother’s Day from KB Farm.  We are having a very good Mother’s Day.  Our sales are slightly ahead of last year for the same days sales.  

We will probably end ahead because we will sell out all of our flowers by the end of the week. The quality has been very good and FRESH since we have to use the same day cut to fill orders.  Here are a couple of pictures from the packing and grading room floor.

Happy Patty bunching gardenias.

Post Mother’s Day

I also took a walk with Jimmy (the grower) to see what the crop will look like after Mother’s Day.  There will be plenty of gardenias, lisianthus and gerberas, so order up. 

The BIG problem will be lilies.  There will be very few pink oriental lilies because of bulb issues and the container strike holdup. I believe all lily growers will be in the same boat.  Please talk to your KB salesperson about options.

We hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day and thank you all for your orders, 
and support during this big holiday!
