This is me, I'm the Customer Service Supervisor. I also manage the inventory and print out the labels that are included in each pot. My favorite plant is the Colocasia gigantea "Giant Elephant Ear" because of its large size and the unique aspect it adds to container gardening.
Here is Margaret, the customer service representative who answers all of our emails and proofreads the catalogs before we send them to be printed. On average, Margaret answers between 100 to 150 emails during our busy season. Margaret's favorite plant is the Mandevilla laxa "Chilean Jasmine" because of the growth habit and vigor.
This is Kirstin. She is currently processing orders for shipment. This process takes about two days. On the first day, the paperwork is generated. Then, the paperwork is sent to the correct department; the pick tickets go to the picker who will find the plants in the 13 greenhouses, and the shipping department gets packing slips so the order can be shipped. Kirstin's favorite plant is the Begonia 'My Special Angel' because of how easy it is to grow and she likes the spotted leaves.
Sherrie is currently first on the phones. This means that she answers the majority of the phone calls. She also takes turns with Kirstin processing orders. Sherrie's favorite plant is the Hibiscus 'Bon Temps' because of the color of the bloom and how easy it was to get it to start blooming!
Donna does the bookkeeping as well as some customer service. Donna's favorite plant is the Hibiscus 'Rumrunner' because of its big, beautiful flowers and how well it blooms.
