As we gear up for the expected busy Fall Wedding Season it’s always a good idea to be informed of which crops are starting and ending and others that may just be struggling due to weather issues.  Continuing with our weekly Market Reports out of California, our very own CA Branch Manager, Marc Robinson provides us with a detailed report on what’s happening.  We hope you find this information valuable and continue to read.

“The continued strong demand for flowers has not let up. Growers are still doing everything possible to get production caught up to that demand. Weather has warmed once again the past week.  The expectation is that we will have a hotter than usual September. This will push some flowers to flush and possibly shorten seasons for dahlias. Time will tell!” Marc
