We go thru approx 800 annual flats and 400 or so Winter Pansie Flats.
We do several large Condo complexes, a couple nice office building complexes and an assisted living community that takes 400 flats a year by itself.
Weened everyone off of Mums several years ago.
Lucas Greenhouse in NJ grows em all.

We only do some here and there...it's not a consistent thing....I used to maintain a condo unit that made us buy more but dropped the account.

We buy about 400-450 in the spring and 500-550 in the fall/winter. We have a few jobs that have some very large annual beds.
