For the three months May, June and July we are selling lilacs, roses and more. The newsletter I am working on this month is at www.floweringshrubfarm.com/garden.htm and includes a link to "what we do and when we do it". The pictures below are probably from previous years unless they have been recently over-written.
My nursery is in the middle of Voorheesville, NY surrounded by local residences so we propagate and grow plants that are very disease resistant, washing insects from their leaves with water. I propagate and grow plants from my catalogs that my customers have requested, are locally hardy and disease resistant. We sell 2 year old plants in one gallon pots mail order and if they dont sell gradually repot into larger containers that at first we may use as a source of cuttings but later may sell from the nursery. Once plants are 2 years old and have been identified from the flower, I will attach a price sticker to the side of the pot that is easily seen in a picture.
On the left you see Roses that we will use as a source of cuttings in July, August and September placed on drip line in the field. On the right you see a picture of all the plants that are two years old as these will be the ones we sell if they flower proving what variety they are (there is always a certain level of anxiety on my part over how I could have screwed up on the labeling and the flowers blooming will solve that). Once they are clearly identified from the flower I stick a price label to the side of the pot that should be easily seen if you click for a larger image.
Each day that I have flowering 1 gallons I will take a picture and save it as that day. You can click the picture for a larger image to study more closely or save as wallpaper. I will verify the variety and print it on the pot with the paint pen along with the year it was potted. Remember we wont sell them until they are two years old and have previously flowered. If you recognise one you should go ahead and email me about it though it may already be sold or just not old enough.
