    EMFBG TIP 15 – Over Production

    Opportunity Abound on Flower Day

    These types of vendors are ready to deal, you would be doing both of you a favor.

    If you are walking the market and spot a large display of a single variety of bedding plants, due to various uncontrolled circumstances growers have overstocked merchandise. These growers can be motivated to sell at bargain prices. In trade lingo they say, the grower is “long on Begonias.” Just knowing what to look for can get $12 healthy, beautiful Begonia flats for only $6! “2X the flower buying power.” 

    Excerpt – True Story

    One year as I was making my routine market walk, I spotted a grower with an entire truckload of Red Impatiens; beautiful and in prime condition.  I complimented on the beauty of the plants–remember don’t brow beat, compliment–and asked the price. He said “$12.”  I took out my wallet and asked if he would accept $100 for 20 flats; that’s $5 a flat.  The grower called his farther, and cleared the deal.  I fished out another twenty hidden in my wallet as emergency funds and threw that into the already accepted offer. My final price was $6 a flat and the grower netted appx $4. with the relief he was not going to lose $4, and load & haul the flowers back to the farm, and unload. This is a “win win.”

    I have also seen new grower vendors at the market hoping to get near full price for their flats, who would pass up these low priced deals even from retailers trying to buy the whole truck and get stuck with lots of inventory at the end of the day.

    You just have to have the right eye to know what to look for, and a sincere desire to benefit all.  That’s why I gave up the $20 dollar bill.  I don’t want to hurt the grower, and I like being in the right place at the right time. These deals and start appearing as early as Flower Day.
