Availability
Potted blues are available year round. Potted caneberries and strawberries are available starting mid-April. Please order potted caneberries and strawberries before March 1st, so the plants have enough time to establish themselves in the containers. We have bareroot caneberries and strawberries available from about October-March.

Displays and Signage
While ripe, juicy berries are sure to attract attention, we also offer many labeling, signage and display options to compliment your retail marketing strategy. We can provide you with refurbished wooden display boxes for bareroot plants. To help keep plants looking great on the shelf, we add water holding amendments and slow release fertilizer to the soil to increase shelf-life. We also provide marketing support to our retailers, including event and online advertising opportunities. All our retail plants come with custom designed picture tags which include care instructions, planting advice, etc. as well as a QR code linking to our website so your customers can access recipes and additional help. We can make special price tags for a small fee. These tags can include your logo, website, etc. in addition to pricing. To garner even more attention, we can help design your display with banners and creative signage.
