State Wide Plant Shortages

plant devastation Many of our customers have called, texted, and emailed us wanting to know when trees, shrubs, and plant inventory will be restocked.

As you may know, The industry faces plant shortages from last year’s soaring pandemic sales and this year’s southern freeze. 2020’s pandemic gardening frenzy left many of our suppliers with shortages. Folks stuck at home turned their time and money towards their homes, yards, and gardens. 

Then winter storm Uri dumped record snow and damaging ice from coast to coast February 12-16. The storm was followed by the coldest temperatures in decades in the south-central states. Temperatures across Texas didn’t climb above freezing for several days. Most of the state experienced negative temperatures for the first time in 60+ years, with areas like Dallas-Fort Worth and Tyler dropping below zero. For some perspective, cities like Dallas have average February temperatures between a low of 41°F and a high of 61°F.

Extended freezing temperatures killed or badly damaged shrubs, trees and perennials in nurseries, garden centers, greenhouses, and landscapes throughout the state, in turn exacerbating the existing plant shortages.  Our team often spends hours waiting to pick up the limited inventory that our suppliers are able to offer. 

We kindly ask for your patience as we navigate this plant shortage together. Our team is doing its best. Please, if you need to reach us, call our MAIN NUMBER. Texting our team gets overwhelming, and repetitive texting won’t generate a quicker response. We ask that you please call our main phone line, (817) 337-3336.  If you leave a message after hours, we will have the appropriate person get back to you as quickly as possible.
