Inventory

We establish our inventory from field counts in the spring. Eighty percent of total counts are used to establish saleable numbers. Initial sizing is based on an average of past years’ growth for each variety. Another count is done in mid-September. Every 10th plant is graded to establish an accurate inventory. Only eighty-five percent of this inventory will be sold until final gradeout.

If changes are necessary, we try to communicate this by mid-October. In order to ensure that repeat customers are taken care of, all of last years order will be held off inventory until August 1st. You will be contacted in early summer to reserve your plants and make any changes. After August 1st, all remaining plants become open inventory and are available on a first come, first serve basis. We believe this policy will allow you to have confidence in receiving the nursery stock you need from Robinson Nursery.
