Last year we introduced the “You pick, we pot” service at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market. We’re happy to report that it’s back this year!
Customers are invited to select from the colorful, varied array of bedding plants, along with a seven-gallon plastic planting pot. The plants are then pre-planted, reviewed and approved by the customer, then hand planted, using top-brand potting soil. Also available is a blend of soil, stones, and moss that helps retain moisture. Once all the elements are in place – voila! A custom planter is ready to take home.
According to Phyllis Smith, market manager, “We have already sold several of these completed pots this year. The customer comes up with the creation from the beginning. Our trained peers then plant the selections.” With the brisk business in these creations, planting pots are running low. Miss Phyllis suggests that customers may want to bring their own personal containers for planter completion.
