As the 2016 season comes to an end we at Strawberry Tyme are seeing the end of an era for us as we move away from growing dormant berry plants for the northeastern market. Our family has been producing plants for the dormant plant market since 1939 so it was a decision that was not taken lightly but one that we felt needed to be made based on the changing landscape of the berry industry in eastern North America. We will continue to have dormant plants for sale they just won't be plants that were grown by us. We are continuing our relationships that we have built over the years with the other nurseries around North America and will be bringing plants from these nurseries to look after orders for customers here.
Most of the plants we will have available will be coming from nurseries in the USA so pricing will be a bit different than what they were when plants were produced here in Ontario as the exchange rate comes into play now. As well not all the varieties we used to grow are grown by other nurseries so some of those varieties will no longer be available.
The berry plants we will have available are strawberry & raspberry and we will continue to have asparagus and rhubarb crowns for sale as well. We will however only be handling commercial size orders so the minimum order for strawberries is 1 thousand per variety, raspberries is 150 per variety, asparagus is 400 and rhubarb is 50. These minimums can be seen on the price list as well.
As we move on to the next phase of our plant business we want to take this opportunity to thank our customers for choosing to deal with Strawberry Tyme and we look forward to servicing your plant needs in a different way moving forward.
Thanks again for your business and if you have suggestions on how we can better serve you please let us know.
