October Potential
Looking at the cut flower business, you hear a consistent reoccurring theme, "We need more flower giving and receiving occasions."

You are familiar with the industry's successful efforts to promote Women's Day (Thursday, March 8th, 2018), however, October is also ripe with low hanging fruit. With Breast Cancer Awareness as a central theme of the month, and the Halloween / Day of the Dead combination at the end of the month. October is poised to become a bigger and better month for floral sales.

Sun Valley and our fellow farmers have a great inventory of the classic colors of fall, and of course the pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.  We need your help to highlight the cornucopia of autumn blooms, and share this with your customers. October holds a great potential.

Antique Hydrangeas Going Strong

Due to clear, crisp fall days on our farm in Arcata, California, we are still harvesting exceptional quality Antique Hydrangeas.   
The multi-faceted essence of these beauties make them a great item to have in your cooler or in your floral department. They are simply gorgeous, give us  a call to get a few boxes on your truck.   
Cotinus Continues   

You really need some dark warm tones to balance out all the splashy color of October.   
This is where our Cotinus (Common name Smoke Bush) plays an amazing supporting role in any arrangement or bouquet. Deep burgundy leaves with fiery scarlet veins, this branch has much more going on than first meets the eye.  As a plus, you can have it in sizes from XX to XX.  Hmmm, we have you thinking, don't we?
