RanunculusThe longer we have been farming, the more I have learned about specific varieties of flowers that I want, as well as which colors and varieties sell best in our market. In order to reserve those varieties, it is important to get the orders in on time. But what exactly does that mean? Basically, you need to order for the following year as soon as this year’s crop is done blooming. Sounds crazy to plan that far ahead, especially if you do your crop planning in the winter as we used to. But not only is it best to get your order in as soon as you can, it’s also best to order when the crop is fresh in your mind. The most important crops to order on time in our production are tulips, ranunculus, anemones, peony roots, and lilies.
