Poinsettias 2009

As most of you know, Visser's Florist and Greenhouses has been selling quality poinsettias since the 1950s. People (and churches and businesses and schools) keep coming back year after year to get their order.

Well, I am pleased to announce that even in this economic recession/depression we are still selling them like crazy. However, something interesting is happening this year. We are selling out of all the big plants, the 8 inch and 10 inch plants, faster than the smaller ones. Yes, I know that the big ones are unbelievably impressive, but we assumed people would go a little smaller this year.

I guess quality matters, even when things are tough.

By the way, we still have a few big poinsettias left so if you hurry you won't be left out.

New style roses

visser's roses
This is pretty interesting. We were asked by a company to put together several dozen roses to hand out as awards. The only thing was they wanted something a little different. We put on our thinking caps and this is what we came up with: The long stemmed red roses are enhanced by seeded eucalyptus. hypericum berries and ti leaves. Needless to say, the company loved the design.
