**Due to the tender nature of Poinsettias, our fundraiser is limited to the West Michigan area only**
Care is required. Poinsettias are sensitive to heat and cold and subject to breakage if not handled correctly. All plants must be covered for delivery and displayed in areas free from drafts and with plenty of bright light. Direct sun is not necessary. Water them sparingly – moist, not soggy soil – and no 'wet feet'.
The method we use for this fundraiser is to have your organization read this information page and then download and print the signup form at the bottom of this page. Complete and send it to us if you wish to make inquiries or have decided to participate. We will then contact you and work out your arrangements. You will need to decide:
• What pot sizes you wish to sell
• What colors to sell
• When do you want to have your plants delivered – usually that is the same day as, or the day before your purchasers will pick them up from you. (Do not hold them for more than 2 days.) Delivery dates are subject to plant availability – they don't 'bloom' till 3rd week of November or later with some varieties.
•Where will they be delivered (and on your end - who will receive them, sort them, etc.)
•If you want pot covers on them (no additional charge) and what colors (red, green, gold silver – or a mix)
•If you want help from us in creating an order form, you will also need to have established your selling prices before contacting us. Most groups double their costs.
We would like all fundraisers to be set up with us by early November. (If you will require a huge number of plants or novelty colors in all sizes, that must be communicated to us by mid-summer.)
Plant orders have to be received a minimum of one week before delivery. All orders are subject to our availability and we reserve the right to make substitutions as necessary – especially for late orders or if there is a crop failure. You will be notified of and given choices for substitutions. No changes in orders will be allowed within 2 days of delivery. No refunds or exchanges will be allowed after delivery unless quantities or color errors have occurred on our part or plants have been damaged during delivery. (Rare!)
COLORS this year are the traditional red, white, or pink – plus novelty colors Peterstar Marble (variegated pink and white), Cortez Burgundy (deep red, burgundy, or maroon shade).
Prices are based on pot size and number of flowers/plants in each pot, not on the colors. Prices include pot covers and delivery (within the local Grand Rapids area) to a single, local site with minimum order. These are your purchase prices – you are free to determine your group's selling prices based on what you need your margins to be. Prices will be posted for 2013 by the end of September once the crop is established.
