Harvest Tips: Cut when you can see full buds that are showing color and are about one-third open. Make sure the centres are tight. If they are harvested too early, it will be difficult to open the blossoms. Remove any foliage that would fall below the water line in vases or buckets. Cut the stems on an angle, place the stems into a clean bucket of cool water or properly prepared cut flower food solution that is several inches deep. Keep Ageratums in a brightly lit, warm area where they can open and develop for at least two hours. These flowers can be cooled and stored in a floral refrigerator at 34 F to 38 F. They also will do well in room-temperature conditions.
Beginning Nov 1, we have paused taking new orders until our new 2021 inventory goes live on Monday December 7th at 12 noon ET.
We have heard and continue to read on social media sites, some concerns about seed availability in the North American context. We can report that this appears to be just speculation and hype. Yes, volume of seed buying is up, but there doesn't seem to be evidence to support these concerns.
We thank you for all your support this year and look forward to growing with you again next season.
We look ahead excitedly to December and invite you to embrace our Wishlist feature which allows you to "browse" our seed catalogue and build an order that you can move to a cart with the click of one button.
We are working on orders placed before our pause date first and those orders will finish shipping shortly.
