Once again, we are partnering with Northwoods Wreaths to provide a Spring Plant Sale for the Scouts and units in our council that would like to participate in a spring fundraiser. Northwoods offers the finest quality annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, and specialty items grown just for you in Michigan greenhouses. This year’s they have expanded their options to 39 plants.
This year they are creating custom online sales websites for your unit to ensure a safe selling experience and to allow units to track sales by Scout. The fee for setting up a site is $50. The online sites include all of our bedding plants, hanging baskets, and 12” planters all loaded with our suggested retail pricing.
We do offer two color brochures; one for Bedding Plants and the other for Hanging Baskets and Planters. We recommend that you use both brochures to maximize revenues. They are included as PDF links to the right. We can also offer a limited number of printed brochures for units on a first come, first served basis. Retail prices are included on the digital brochures, but will need to be added to physical copies.
Your sale can begin in the February/March time frame and continue until the beginning of April. Northwoods needs your order by Friday April 2nd so your plants are ready for a May delivery to your designated pick-up location. If you use the online sales website, you need to download a report from that site and then transcribe your order into the order platform at northwoodswreaths.com. Upon placing your order, you will also schedule a delivery date and time. This can be to your unit leader’s or volunteer’s home, a charter organization etc. Delivery to your distribution point is included.
For the fifth year we have a 10” red, white, and blue petunia container with an American flag that you can order to donate to a veteran’s gravesite at Ft Sheridan National Cemetery (Northwoods will deliver) or order for your home as a Memorial Day planter.
