You must turn in final Poinsettia sales numbers by Sunday, Oct. 29th 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 $1,680 plus delivery of $47. Delivery Fee is $47-$195 in the Houston area depending on location and size of the order. The Delivery Fee will never go over $195.
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.
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 November 7th, 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.
