All about Marigolds
Q: It’s the Marigold time of the year isn’t it? What can you tell us about them? A: It is definitely our Marigold crops time to shine. We like to grow things that Mother Nature approves of because when we don’t, she normally wins and Marigolds are native to the Americas. They grow really well both here in Southern California and in Mexico.
Bring on Fall
Q: The Fall Season is a busy time of year for The Dos Gringos Team isn’t it? A: It sure is. Summer flew by. We tried to recharge our battery a bit over Labor Day Weekend to hit the ground running this week. The Fall Season feels like a 12 week sprint for us. Q: There’s no major floral holidays in the Fall why are you so busy? A: We see a big uptick in demand for our sunflowers and the team has done a really nice job of growing and designing fall friendly items.
Extra Spiciness Is Just Weeks Away!
Q: Is Dos Gringos making hot sauce now? A: Great idea. I like the way you think! Not yet, but I’ve added it to our “Someday Maybe” list. We just got an update that our Ornamental peppers are on track and looking beautiful and extra spicy this year. Q: Funny you mention spicy. We always buy them as an ornamental fresh cut flower, but can you eat them? A: You can eat them, but they are Very Very Very Spicy! If you don’t believe me give us a call and ask a few of our team members who’ve tried them. Not a good idea. Trust me, they are not grown to be enjoyed as a Fresh Decor, Not to be eaten.
