Eastern Market
Pros & Cons"


When purchasing flowers, take a close look at the tray sizes and the number of plants they contain. Nurseries, including Eastern Market, often offer trays with varying plant counts, ranging from as few as 18 plants per flat to larger trays with 48 or more.

While trays with more plants may seem like a better deal at first glance, it's crucial to consider the space available in your garden and the specific needs of each plant.

Opting for trays with fewer plants might be more cost-effective if you have a smaller garden or are looking to diversify your flower selection. This allows you to allocate space more efficiently and avoid overcrowding, which can lead to stunted growth and increased susceptibility to diseases.

On the other hand, if you have a larger garden or a specific area where you want to create a dense flower bed, trays with a higher plant count might be a better fit. However, be mindful of the recommended spacing for each type of flower to ensure optimal growth and visual appeal.

Additionally, mixing and matching tray sizes can be a strategic approach. Choose smaller trays for flowers that require more space to spread out and larger trays for compact or ground-cover varieties. This way, you can tailor your plant selection to your garden's layout while maximizing both efficiency and savings.
