First off, we hope that everyone had a great holiday season! Here at Ritters, we took some needed down time to relax and hang out with family before things got rolling again. And well... that time is here!
The start of 2018 is here and we've got big things planned for this upcoming season. Greenhouse #2 is already at 100% capacity with more plants coming in within the next two weeks which means we are about to start warming up more houses! Most of the plants we have growing right now are ferns, green starts, vines, grasses, etc., items that take more time and heat to grow.
But this week we finally got some new plants as the new year rolled in. The first wave of geraniums arrived, along with fuchsia and osteospermum. With the geraniums, we will use this first batch to make up our first round of hanging baskets. The fuchsia plants are also used to make hanging baskets. The osteospermum are some of the earliest flowers we sell along with our pansies and violas. Getting them in early is key to being able to provide pretty and early color in flower beds and containers right as we start getting out of the winter months.
Check out some of the stuff we have growing below, from green starts, ferns, osteospermum, geraniums and much more!
Now that we are getting into the new year, stay tuned for updates pertaining to some new products this year. Also watch out for some informational videos to see what happens behind the scenes here at Ritters! From the time we get plants in, to the time they leave our doors in the spring, a lot happens and we are excited to be able to share some of those things with you all as we move forward this season!
