Postcard Instructions and Helpful Hints
Please read the following information for a more thorough explanation of each postcard section.
VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER
**ALL Outdoor Water On by May 1st**
If you have outdoor water sources turned off for the winter, please contact your Caretaker, Plumber, or Irrigation Specialist and schedule to have your water ON by May 1st to ensure timely flower planting.
Whether you received your postcard via mail or email, your 2018 History has been provided to you to help you make Your 2019 Plan.
Yearly Site Care-Plan
This refers to the scheduled frequency Polly’s crew will visit your home to care for your gardens. If your flowers & gardens looked great in 2018, choose “Same as last year” to continue with what works. If you Desire a change to your Care-Plan, choose that option and we’ll work with you to provide the service level that works best for you.
Note: Upon receipt of your signed postcard, perennial gardens are automatically scheduled for a spring clean-up and fertility application as soon as weather allows. This may also include ornamental shrub pruning as required.
Spring Flower Planting
Add early season color to your gardens, planters, and/or window boxes with frost-tolerant flowers. Complement the spring-blooming bulbs we planted last fall or add splashes of spring to prominent areas. To quote a friend:
“It is astonishing what just 2 pots can do for your soul after a long, dark winter…just 2 pots!”
Circle Yes here and we will be in touch to suggest ideas to brighten your spring!
Summer Flower Planting Desired completion date
We plant summer flowers for many of you, so this is a very important date for you to schedule with Polly’s. There is a limited amount of time to plant flowers between Memorial Day* and July 4th and you need to reserve your date with us now to ensure we can accommodate your request. Choose the date you wish to have your summer flower planting completed and we will place you in our schedule on a First In, First Choice basis.
*You may request Pre-Memorial Day planting however, due to frost concerns in Northern Michigan, we cannot guarantee frost-free planting of summer flowers prior to Memorial Day. Some sites are better suited to withstand spring weather and temperature fluctuations. We will work with you if your site meets such criteria.
Care to discuss anything?
We offer this area if you wish to improve anything within your garden landscape. New garden areas, changes to your garden services, reworking current gardens, etc. Jot a note here and we will contact you to discuss.
