Fall season begins early at Sunbelt

Everyone at Sunbelt Greenhouses is preparing for the Fall and Poinsettia production cycles that will keep us busy until the end of 2012. We expect to begin shipping Mums after Labor Day.

Our outdoor fields are full of Garden Mums in four sizes. We increased our field capacity by 2 acres and installed a drip tape watering system throughout the nursery. This investment is paying off in lower labor costs, which allows us to maintain competitive pricing. Our covered fields are progressing nicely as well.Sunbelt's Pansies and Violas are transplanted, and the cool nighttime temperatures are certainly welcome! Our other fall production includes assorted annuals, herbs and vegetables, and accent plants and grasses. We will also have available combination containers, coco wire baskets and hanging baskets.

A few photos to show our progress are below.
