What's Future Ordering?

If you've been a customer of Lancaster Farms for some time, you've probably heard something about future ordering. But what the heck is it? Future ordering is a service for our wholesale customers. You provide us with a list of all of the spring flowers you will need this coming season. This works for you in a couple ways:

  • We can confirm that you will get the exact varieties that you need; you won't have to think about substitutions or dealing with disappointed homeowners.
  • Plan ahead for your business needs for spring and get all of your seasonal color plant material from one source. This can save you so much time! Time = money.
  • All future orders are managed by our inventory manager to ensure orders are fulfilled as we work through our inventory.

We want to set your business up for the best spring season yet! Future ordering is a solution that we think all of our customers should take advance of. No order is too big or too small!

The key to future ordering for annuals is planning early, so contact us at (757) 484-4421 to get started!
