Extreme heat in North Carolina!

Summer is upon us (and it isn’t technically summer yet)! We have been experiencing extreme temperatures in the upper-nineties this week, and it doesn’t appear that there is any relief in sight.

When it is this hot, we can still ship plants on our truck, but we have to be careful and mindful about what we are shipping. We do not ship plants via FedEx when it is this hot because the plants tend to “melt” in the boxes. 90-degree temperatures + no air circulation= unhappy plants.  Even though the plants that travel on our truck are not boxed up, it still gets very hot in the truck, which is why we have to be careful.

We also have to make sure we take the correct safety precautions when it is this hot. We like to come in a little earlier and leave early to avoid some of the hottest part of the day.  If you are scheduling a pick up, we recommend that you call us and schedule so that we know to expect you.

During the summer months, we temporarily change our operating hours. Starting on June 29th, we will open at 7:00AM and close at 3:30PM. Visits and pick ups must be made by 3:00PM. That means you have to be out of the nursery at 3:00PM, no exceptions. We recommend getting here by 2:00-2:30PM in order to give yourself enough time to retrieve your order. This is a slightly different than our normal operating hours, in that we can allow you to show up after 3:00 if you’re running late.  In order for the growers to finish their end-of-day tasks, you must be out of the nursery by 3:00PM during the summer months.  Please keep this in mind if you are planning a pick up.

Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions/comments/concerns.

Stay cool!
