The fundraising products are chosen because they are the most popular items in our store. We have hundreds of products that we grow at the greenhouse but need to streamline the process so groups can easly sort and distribute the plants.
As with anything new, there have been a few questions about how to place a fundraising order on our website. The process is quite simple; often making people think that there must be a step that has been missed. We hope the following guide helps you with placing your order.
Unfortunately we have to ship all fundraiser orders to the group that they were ordered from where they are then distributed to the purchasers. If you prefer to come to the greenhouse, purchase plant cards that can be redeemed at the greenhouse at a time that is convenient to you. Not only will you find the products listed in the fundraiser catalogue, but also hundreds more varieties.
We use an integrated pest management system that begins with keeping the environment clean and starting with clean growing practices. We use biological predators and parasites to seek out any pest outbreaks and deal with them naturally. Pesticides are a control practice of last resort and are never applied to any food related plant. We never use neonicotinoids.
Only Mother Nature knows when the last day of frost will be. Please protect your plants from the cold. Even in a garage or shed the frost can creep in and damage your plants. Bring them into a heated area if the temperature is going to dip. If your plants are already in the ground, cover with blankets.
Plants are living things and require attention. Place in indirect sunlight outside if temperatures allow and water as necessary. A north or east side of a building is best. If frost is predicted, take preventative measures. Be careful not to over water your plants.
In cool and low light conditions, plants require less water. Check the soil moisture level before watering the plant. Over watered plants have the same wilting symptoms as a dry plant, as the roots are beginning to die back from lack of air. Do not leave in a darkened shed or garage for more than 24 hours.
The gift cards never expire and can be used at our greenhouse and at our Booth at the St Norbert Farmer’s Market, and Downtown Winnipeg Market. They cannot be used to pay for products purchased through a fundraiser or wholesale purchases.
As long as the products don't run out of inventory your cart will remain active as Shopify does not delete them. However this may vary depending on browser settings. If you forget about your cart, we will automatically send you a reminder email after 12 hours of being inactive.
