Due to high demand and production limitations, King’s was unable to ship our order the week of 29 April as had been coordinated earlier at the NCS National Show in October.
We have requested delivery of the exhibition and garden mums the week of 6 May. So mark your calendars so you can help pot on May 9, 10 and 11 (if needed). King’s/garden plant and supplies pick-up will now be the afternoon of Saturday 11 May 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and Sunday 12 May 1:00 to 3:00 pm. This changes the dates on the first page of the plant order.
Pot and Belgian mums will be shipped the week of 13 May. We plan to pot on Friday 17 May. Your order can be picked up at Green Spring Gardens in Annandale during the plant sale on Saturday, May 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or at the Moore’s on Sunday May 19 from 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
