Spring Fundraiser FAQs

Since these are live plants, flexibility is important for several reasons. One reason might be that some plants might not be ready to ship when your order is picked (too small, no flower, etc.). We will offer substitutions for items that are not ready to ship. We always try, to the best of our availability, to fulfill your order.

Q. How do I get started?

A. If your organization is tax exempt, please ask for the PA tax exempt form so that you can fill it out and return it to us for our records, prior to your sale.

Q. What options are available to sell the plants?

A. The first option is a plant sale where on a certain day (perhaps at an event), you have tables of plants available for sale.

Q. Do you take back unsold plants?

A. We do not take back plants that did not sell on the day of your event.

Q. Is there another option to sell the plants?

A. Your organization can do a pre-sale of your plant sale, where you take a list of plants and sell them to your customers. Then you total the orders and submit the total to us as an order. When we deliver them, you can sort them and have your customers pick them up. In most cases, you will want to limit the options available for your customers in order to make distribution easier for you.

Q. How much do I charge our customers for the plants?

A. Each organization can determine the amount. You can go by your local competition in your area to see how much they charge for product. Often, markup is between 50%-100%.

Q. Is delivery available?

A. Contact us and we can provide the deliver order minimum and delivery charge for areas we service. We recommend reserving your delivery spot as early as possible, due to the fact that space on our trucks fill up fast. Please note that we do not deliver on Sunday or Monday. Delivery week of May 4th. (the week before Mother's Day) is reserved for our long-standing Fundraisers - we apologize but we cannot take delivery requests for this week. We recommend the week of April 30th for delivery for best availability. Please let us know if there are any special delivery instructions for our driver to find you!

Q. Do I need help unloading the delivery truck?

A. Yes, "helpers" are needed to unload your order of the racks. The driver will take racks off the truck and may help unload at times.

Q. How would a pickup work?

A. Minimum order for pickup is $500.00. Pickup is available Tuesday - Friday, 8AM - 4:30PM, and Saturday 8AM - 11:30AM at our Lititz Wholesale facility only. We are located along route 322 (close to the intersection of 501 and 322). Use our address to bring up coordinates on GPS. Our address is: 546 E 28th Division Highway, Lititz, PA 17543.

A. By email: Fundraisers@Esbenshades.com, fax: (717)-626-7302, or mail: 546A E. 28th Division Hwy, Lititz, PA, 17543.

Q. Does placing an order early and paying for them reserve the plants?

A. Unfortunately, it does not due to the very large volume we grow and ship, and our facility at this time cannot accommodate reserving items. We reserve the right to limit quantities and will not be held responsible for out of stock items. Let your customers know that there is a chance there could be substitutions at the time of their order. You may be contacted up until the evening prior to pickup/delivery of an item(s) needed substituted. Make sure to return the Fundraiser Acknowledgement form so we know how to handle your order in case of substitutions.

Q. Can we make changes to our order?

A. You can make changes up until 4 business days prior to your pickup/delivery day.

Q. I see there is a long list of plants you grow. What do you recommend we sell?

A. Hanging baskets and geraniums are our best sellers. Items marked with a "C" are common items that we grow lots of since they are good sellers as well.

Q. What forms of payment do you accept?

A. Cash, Check (that is from your organization), VISA, MASTERCARD, or DISCOVER. For an optional credit option, (Net 30 days), please request a credit application several weeks in advance of your sale. It may take up to a month to be pre-approved, so please plan accordingly.
