Every year, Lucas Greenhouses offers a custom grow annual program for the spring and a custom grow pansy program for the fall. These custom plants are grown in our 1801 Root Stepper Flats which features 18 single cells per flat, with each flat measuring 20”x10”x 3 5/8”. The Root Stepper promotes interior root pruning in stepped levels producing quality plants. It also eliminates the mess of individual pots making for an easy clean up.
This program is ideal for the landscaper who would appreciate the guarantee of large quantities of high quality plants during their busiest seasons. Make your install schedule with confidence, knowing your plants will be delivered and ready to plant on the week you requested.
We offer a complete line of annuals in the custom grow program, including Wave Petunias, Big Begonias, SunPatiens, Kong Coleus and bread-n-butter seed annuals. We also offer a wide range of pansies in the fall, including violas.
This program is offered on a pre-book basis only. The deadline to have your orders in for the following spring is the end of December, while the deadline for fall orders is mid-June. For the spring we have seven ready weeks to choose from, starting mid-April and running consecutive weeks through the end of May. In the fall, we offer four ready delivery weeks to choose from, starting late September and running consecutive weeks into October. We do request that varieties are ordered in 15 flat increments.
Many Landscapers are now requesting even larger plants for their installs. We do accept requests in this custom grow program for our #4.5, #5.5, #6 pots, and #8 TP if you are in need of these larger sizes for your plantings. The actual order forms for this program will include these additional sizes.
At times we do have some overage in the 1801’s. If you are looking for a few trays or would like to just try them out, don’t hesitate to call and check availability.
