Crop Lead Times

This table provides a general overview of the approximate lead times required for different crops at different times of year. Please keep in mind that in order to deliver transplants on a specific date, we need enough lead time to process your order, obtain seed, allocate greenhouse space, and grow the plants.

Of course, actual growing times can vary significantly depending on the crop and time of year, so this chart should be used as a general guideline only.

Please contact us for more information about a specific crop or order.
