Plants take time to grow and in some cases years to achieve the desired size or look required. Our horticultural consultants can help you to understand lead times, seasonal trends, new releases and discuss options to make sure you get the results you are after.
By having us involved in the planning stage, it will take some of the guess work and stress away from having to substitute species at the time of planting, or miss out on key retail sales lines throughout the year.
Landscape plans are often created many months sometimes years ahead of planned installation, but often the plant supply contract is not awarded until a month or so out from installation. This lack of notice means that unless a nursery happens to have the right quantity, pot size, species or stock collected from provenance seed, substitutions must be made. Nurseries and landscapers share equal displeasure in substituting, so entering into a growing plan early in the project planning stage will result in the best planting results.
Time frames will vary according to the time of year, species type, container size required, germination time and availability of seed. Once we’ve discussed your project requirements we can more accurately assess lead times. The earlier we know, the sooner you will know and the more likely we will be able to meet your needs.
