|We're going to be alright|
On March 15, when the United States shut down, I didn’t think that we would ever sell another plant.
The Horticulture industry was panicked. With Spring plant sales in jeopardy, it was easy to predict bankruptcy ahead.
But retail sales started to open up and doomsday was averted.
The pent-up demand overwhelmed garden centers and most recorded extra high sales.
What happened to us?
We had several eCommerce customers who suddenly found themselves with double the orders. Indoor gardeners were trapped at home. Hey, “Let’s order a plant. UPS will bring it to my house.”
We have had difficulty growing enough plants to catch up.
No one could have predicted this year’s events. No one knows how to predict what’s next??
If I continue the baseball metaphor, now I’m winning 46-23. Impossible, unlikely game.
