Availability List Notes and Codes

Availability changes on a daily basis. We encourage all of our customers to email/phone in availability requests to receive the most current availability and pricing.

BULK PRICINGWe offer quantity discount pricing to all of our wholesale customers. Quantity discounts begin for many items at 10 units. The availability list has four quantity discount categories for most items. The price indicated in the appropriate quantity column is the price the customer will pay for that item for the calendar dates the list covers. Quantity discounts are per item only. Multiple items may not be combined to reach a discount level. Quantity discounts apply to a single invoiced transaction only and may not be combined with other invoiced transactions during the same availability period. Prices are valid while supplies last only and may change in a subsequent availability list (or update) without notice. No backorders will be accepted without specific approval from a salesperson. All minimum order levels and delivery minimums/charges apply to each order. 

FILTERSIf you use the spreadsheet version of the file, you may use the filters above each column to sort on specific criteria. For instance, under size, you may sort to only show 1g, 5g or any combination. You may also sort under description to list only succulents, or only grasses, etc. You may sort on California natives by choosing sorting by CA in the CA column. Or use any combination to get very specific results. Make sure you use 'wildcards' to display the full results. For more information on 'wildcards', see the spreadsheet help section. 

SEARCHINGIf you use the .pdf version of the document, you will not be able to sort in the same manner as with the spreadsheet version but you may search the document for results with Adobe Reader. You may search using a number of criteria. Please see the help section in Adobe Reader for more information. For a free download of Abobe Reader, click here.

CODESEach line item is coded with an abbreviation or series of abbreviations to provide additional information about the specific lot(s) that are currently for sale.

CA - If the plant is marked with a 'CA,' it is considered a California native. For our definition, we have included naturally occurring natives (within the state boundaries), native selections and hybrids (with at least one native parent), and a few Baja species.

AUS - If the plant is marked with an 'AUS,' it is considered a native of Australia.

R – Retail Quality. A retail quality product is a higher quality product and is suited for high-end, high profile jobs, retail nursery shelves, etc. The products are more uniform, often in bud or bloom, have regular soil levels, etc. Many natives, some drought tolerant plants, and plants that undergo either winter or summer dormancy may still receive an ‘R’ rating even though they may not specifically meet all of the listed criteria. For these species, and 'R' rating indicates that they are the highest quality that one would expect for the item grown in a container and/or grown at a particular time of the year.  

L – Landscape Quality. A landscape quality product is well suited for installation into most landscape/commercial jobs. These products are generally not suited for retail nursery shelves.  The products typically have some characteristics that prevent them from being retail quality. These include, lower soil levels, dormancy, cut back material, non-uniform structure, or a combination of these and other factors. 

BL – Bloom.  The plant material is either in bud, partial bloom, or full bloom.

VAR – Variable. The crop is variable in form, size, or structure. If many units are ordered, the customer should not necessarily expect a uniform crop. The probability of variable material increases with higher quantities. 

OG – Overgrown. The crop is considered overgrown. In most cases the crop has not been cut back.

LS – Low Soil. The crop has low soil levels but without exposed roots. This is typically an aesthetic issue only.

EC – End of Crop. This note signifies that there are only few items left from the specific original lot.  It is used to indicate that the customer should expect that this plants will be highly variable and are the items that have been left after all others have sold.

CB – Cut Back. The specific lot has been cut back.

DM – Dormant. Plants may go into dormancy in the winter or summer. Some plants will be pushed to total dormancy (completely brown) and others will become semi-dormant, showing both green and brown on its leaves. Some plants will be cut back to the base for the winter or summer and some will be left as they are. The state of plant’s dormancy in a nursery container can also be affected by the stage of the plant’s production within the nursery operation. So at times, plants that would typically be dormant in a landscape may act as a semi-dormant or evergreen plant in the nursery setting. Finally, some plants will go fully dormant regardless of the temperatures or state of production in the nursery.

VS – Very Small. The item is very small and very lightly rooted. Although the item can be successfully planted, the installer should take special care when planting.

S – Small.  The item is small and lightly rooted. Many natives and other drought tolerant plants are better and most successfully planted when small. Items listed as small are typically not suited for retail nursery shelves and certain types of high profile jobs, regardless of the noted benefits of planting small plants. 

FE – Few remain. There are few to very few items left for sale in the current lot.
