    Organization Information




    Tips: Groups of at least 10-15 work best. A good minimum sales goal is at least 10 per person. Establish goals for your entire group and for individuals. What do you need to earn to hit your goals? Consider all selling strategies – social media, parent’s places of work, sell at athletic events, advertise in community newspapers or newsletters, etc. Incentivize high performing sellers and remind your group what your ultimate goals are with the funds raised. Your group is held to the minimum of 240. Your estimated sales goal just gives an idea of your potential and how much crop we need to keep in mind for your group.
    Organization Billing Address: (Where organization receives mail)- This can be a P.O. Box



    Contact Information

    Primary Point of Contact





    Secondary Point of Contact

    (Must be different than Primary)




    Organization Billing Contact

    (Can be the same as one of the above)




    Tips: Name a reliable coordinator that is passionate about your initiative! Someone with great organizational skills. Make this person responsible for collecting all proceeds. If you have a treasurer position within your group, then they can be a different point of contact. Your primary point of contact is responsible for all communication with Spring Creek Growers and the group. Communication is the key to success! The Primary Point of Contact is responsible for turning in the total sales figure to the Poinsettia Specialist on or by Oct. 26th via email. Your final confirmation and invoice will be emailed to both Primary and Billing contacts if they are different. Regular communication between the Primary Point of Contact about the status of your fundraiser is helpful. If you are drastically overselling or underselling your goals, please let us know. A good rule of thumb is to keep your poinsettia specialist informed as you sell in increments of 240.

    Delivery Information

    You must turn in final Poinsettia sales numbers by Tuesday, Oct. 26th at 5:00pm via email to guarantee shipment.

    Your order minimum is 240 Poinsettias, which qualifies for delivery. If you sell less than 240 poinsettias, the invoice total will still bill for the 240 poinsettias committed. Your minimum bill will be $1,440 plus delivery of $30. Delivery Fee is $30-$150 in the Houston area depending on location and size of the order. The Delivery Fee will never go over $150.

    Delivery location must be a large enough site for a bobtail truck delivery. A bobtail truck is similar to a large furniture delivery truck. The trucks have lift gates to unload full racks of poinsettias and our friendly drivers assist in verifying counts
    and unloading. A guide to ‘Order Check In’ will be sent upon invoicing to help make sure the delivery and organizing of the order goes smoothly.

    Poinsettias will come on Spring Creek Growers’ metal racks. Each poinsettia will have the red foil covering over the pot and a breathable sleeve to protect bracts. Racks are to be unloaded at the time of delivery. Our drivers accept checks and will collect payment upon delivery.

    We recommend that Poinsettias reach the end customer within 48 hours to maintain quality. After 48 hours, the plants will need to be watered and unsleeved for ventilation. When watering, the foil pot covering needs to be removed so water
    can drain. Water with room temperature water until the full pot is wet and water is dripping out the bottom. Then stop.

    During an event of extreme cold weather, your specialist may need to work with you to move a delivery date and/or time as plant quality will be affected during an extreme cold event.

    Keep your poinsettia safe

    Delivery times and dates are to be selected as a first and second pick request. Official delivery date and time will be emailed to you by October 30th, after final numbers are turned in and trucks are routed.

    Tips: When choosing a day and time, allow yourself plenty of time to receive and organize your delivery by individual. Remember Poinsettias can be delicate. Choose a central location that will be convenient for your group to pick up their orders. Remember Poinsettias must be protected from temperatures below 50° F. Ideal temp range is 60° F—85° F protected from wind, rain and excessive heat and cold. A church, school, band hall, gym usually works best. Garages are not acceptable locations.

    Profit Potential

    You determine your profit potential and sale price! We have groups be successful with a $12.00 sale price. Most groups sell for $11 to keep the cash exchange simple. Your cost is $6.00 per plant and we recommend a $10-$13 selling price, which competes with most high-end garden centers and independent retailers. Remember, you are selling florist quality plants! Remember the minimum commitment is 240 Poinsettias, so if you sell all of your minimum at $12 each, you are guaranteed at least a $1,440 in pocket! If you don’t sell your 240 committed by the Oct. 26th turn in date, you can keep selling!
    All fields highlighted in yellow on the Sample Order Form are customizable to your organization’s needs.







    Invoice Payment to Spring Creek Growers

    Total sales numbers are due by 5:00pm on Tuesday, October 26, 2018. Please email in writing your poinsettia specialist with your group’s name and total sales figure. We don’t need your forms – just your total number of Poinsettias. Your specialist will email you back a confirmation and a copy of your final invoice within 7 business days to help you prepare for delivery. Your invoice will also reconfirm your delivery location, time and tax status.

    We accept payment for the full invoiced amount by check at delivery location only. Please be prepared to give the delivery driver your check upon arrival at delivery location. Drivers are not permitted to start the unloading process before payment has been received.

    Terms and Conditions of Sale

    Working with live horticulture and Mother Nature there are rarely crop failures, but they can happen. In the event of a crop failure, you may receive other colors for some or all your order. This is extremely unlikely but needs to be mentioned. Spring Creek Growers has the right to sell all Poinsettia Fundraisers ANY color of 6” Poinsettia deemed necessary in the event of crop failure. Back up colors include White and Red/White Multicolored. In this event, your specialist will communicate with you to determine a plan and course of action.
    The minimum poinsettia fundraiser commitment is 240 pots of 6" poinsettias at a $6.00 each cost. If by October 26th you have not sold all of the 240 committed, you will still be invoiced for them, but keep in mind you can still keep selling your remaining allotment for as long as you wish.
    Please sign and date here to agree to terms and conditions of sale and acknowledge receipt of the set up information packet:
