View Full Version : Estimating labor time for annuals

How many 4" annuals can one man plant per hour? These are shipped 15 or 18 per tray. Consider that this is an established annual bed, with seasonal rotations. We plant thousands on commercial sites so I'm just wondering how our numbers stack up with others.

We don't do many prepped bed :) so my numbers are a little off plus most of our plants are gallon size, but figure 200 per hr per man for a 3 man crew.

I planted over 500 4" annuals in 3 1/2 hours


I did not charge because it was part of the contract
