They are begonias
There ya go. I would replant if the client is not happy and talk the the vendor.
Thanks very much!!
I have a couple of my begonias I planted in my own yard this year that haven't released either. It looks odd because it's only two plants out of two flats worth that haven't popped yet. The rest are thriving like crazy.
Here is a good over view of their use.
I do not think I would even want to attempt this as it is for growers and nothing applies to landscapers. It is just nice to kind of understand what the growers might be doing.
I would say however it the plants have not released, the grower is responsible. Likely you will just have to suck up the labor cost however.
BTW, I do not plant Begonia's as a result of what happened to me a few years ago. I might in the future but have looked to other plants.
How much do you charge for your annuals per flat to your customers? I am wondering if I am charging to little. I bought my annuals for around 12.99 a flat and charged $30? Is that correct?
I buy mine for less than that. There are plenty of places that sell them for $12.99 or more as distributors Land value and location has a lot to do with it.
I get mine for 8 to 9 depending on the plant and install for $20 if I maintain the property already. If you are buying a truck load delivered you could likely get them even lower from a true grower
That is cheap for sure but as I said, I maintain the place already. I think 30 would be fair to most people.
