|String of Dolphins in demand|
I’ll take a million of those.
I was reading a story about Hydrangeas and how hybridizers are adding new colors and shapes to this niche.
I was stunned by the comment that a box-store buyer ordered one million of a new Hydrangea for next year.
Is this even possible? There is the commitment and the risk. If you could find 10 big growers who would plant 100,000, you could have a million. Where will the stock plants come from?
In my world of minor houseplants, a million is not a number worth talking about.
Our top selling plant for 2019 was String of Dolphins. In all sizes, we grew and sold about 10,000. That is 990,000 less than a million.
If someone wanted a million Primulina ‘Loki’ --- the best Asian Violet, there would be a lot of laughing.
