Sprinting into Spring!

Q and A
- with -
Dos Gringos



Q: It sounds like the races is on?

A: That is very true. We are sprinting into spring with big floral shipping weeks
back to back – Easter/Passover, Administrative Professional’s Day and…the
really big show…Mother’s Day. Our teams are hard at work preparing.



Q: What exactly are they doing? 

 A: Everything, everywhere and all the time for the next few months. It truly is a
team effort to get all of our flowers and greens harvested, hydrated, transported
to our grading and assembly facilities, made into bouquets, packed, pre-cooled
and shipped out the door in record time. We have featured some of our
departments who discuss their portion of the big picture.


Todd Thornton, Our Master Grower Reports: 

 I am working hard to complete our spring crops which I have been working on
since July 2018. Our Sunflowers, Ranunculus, Canterbury Bells, Gypsy
Dianthus, and Larkspur (even after a very challenging winter of rain and dark
weather) are really looking good going into the Spring Sprint. Our selection of
microclimate and variety choices have paid off and crops are on time. Our
spring crops are in full swing and all that is needed is it to be carefully
harvested and sent out to satisfy our customers.

Our Ranunculus are ready for the final sprint!

 Delia Mercado, H.R. Manager Reports: 

 Since January, the HR Team has prepared for “The Spring Sprint” with our core
team of 300 team members from our two grading, assembly, and packing
facilities in California and Mexico. An additional 50 employees have been
recruited to ensure coverage for the high demand in production for the chain of
upcoming holidays. Our team is geared with the tools they need and will focus
on cross-training in various areas to insure support from all departments. As
“team mom”, I make myself accessible to support our team whenever the need
arises. In addition, snacks and dinners are planned out for the long days to
keep everyone fueled, happy, and healthy. Here at DG, we are a strong,
prepared and committed to bring smiles to millions and we have the pictures to prove it!
