A great fund raising idea!
Poinsettias are the favorite Christmas plant with over 45 million sold each Christmas. How easy it is to sell such a beautiful plant to someone who is looking to purchase that very thing. What a great way to raise money for your organization while supporting a local business!
Nanticoke Gardens can supply your organization with an array of florist quality, colorful poinsettias, such as red, white, pink, and red glitter (the old jingle bells variety). Although we offer many sizes of poinsettias, for simplicity sake your organization may want to limit sales to one size. We recommend the 6 ½ inch pot which is a premium plant as opposed to the 6 inch which can be found in numerous retail outlets such as supermarkets and large box stores.
The selling period is typically the end of October where members of your organization take orders in advance so we can be notified of how many of each color you need and when you would like to pick them up or have them delivered (there is a charge for delivery). We will have them all decorated with pot covers, sleeved, boxed, and ready for you when you are ready to deliver the plants to your customers. We sell our extra plants on a first come basis so the sooner we know the quantities you want, the better chance of filling your order without substitutions. Customers should have a second choice in the event we sellout of a particular color. Typically we default to red if your first choice is sold out or unavailable.
We will provide as many full color brochures as your team needs.

We guarantee every plant that leaves here is a quality plant and we will replace any one that is not satisfactory to a customer because of its quality. We invite you to stop by and talk with us if you think that you would like to sell Nanticoke Gardens poinsettias as your fundraiser. We feel poinsettias can be very profitable for your organization and we will work with you as much as possible to that end.
