Production Lead Time - It is best to begin the contract grow process as soon as the job is awarded. We serve both General Contractors and Landscape Contractors with contract grow services.
There are several factors that help determine lead time needed to complete a contract grow:
Finish container size – We contract grow in our standard plugs sizes 32 cell plugs, 50 cell plugs, 72 cell plugs, 2Qt and Qt containers
Amount of production space required
Is seed available and on hand, are there seedlings in stock
Seed stratification timing and germination requirements
Grow to finish time – dependent on time of year, species and container size
Give us a call to discuss your project or send us the species list. Let us do the work to help make your project a success.
