IPN Plant Photos Now Available

 You can now access hundreds of plant photos linked to each plant variety in the new IPN Live Availability System. These are photos that we have taken  the last three years at IPN.  Each plant may contain up to three photos and we plan to continue to build this great sales tool to include a general photo, as well as two other feature photos such as fall leaf color, or bark closeup, etc. 
 We still have work to do, so we appreciate your patience, but for now, there's plenty of photos to enjoy and utilize. 

To view some of these new photos, follow this link to the IPN homepage and then select Live Availabilities at the bottom.  Once there, you will see plant names with small thumbnail photos (seen above).  Click on the thumbnail photo to open the details window (example below).  Try it and let us know what you think!

Post-MANTS 2011 Update

The post MANTS results are in and the overall vision for spring is steady improvement.  Previous years' planting reductions by many growers are beginning to surface and product availability is tightening. We continue to plant and prepare for the future. There may be a shortage of flowering trees in the market that we currently have available (quantities are limited). While many things are changing in the industry, we are committed to being a consistent plant source for you!

Conservative, just-in-time buying continues to be the norm and therefore our No Minimum Order Amount, Consistent Plant Quality and Great Service is a great set of tools for your business today!
