The Fessler Family and the entire staff at Woodburn Nursery & Azaleas would like to say thank you for working
with our company this past year. The year was filled with many challenges for retailers, wholesalers and growers alike.

Although Woodburn faced similar challenges of rising expenses and changing market conditions, we have not increased our
prices in this year’s catalog.

Woodburn has been honored twice during the past season for excellence as a grower in our industry. In August, Tom Fessler,
was awarded the 2008 NMPRO Grower of the Year Award. The winner of this award is chosen by a panel of his peers,
names of distinction in the nursery industry.




                                                                                                                              Phone (503) 634-2231 • woodburnnursery.com
In the February issue of Greenhouse Grower magazine Rick Fessler was interviewed regarding the challenges of selling florist
quality azaleas in today’s potted plant market. Rick and his mom and dad, Bob and Jean the founders of the nursery in
1967, are shown on the cover.

Woodburn Nursery continues to make improvements to the nursery with the ultimate goal of growing some of the highest
quality plant material in the industry. We hope all our customers survive the current economic conditions and look forward
to better markets in the future.

The Fessler Family.

Ordering Information
    ❖ Please order by color not variety. We always try to have a selection of colors available with varieties that bloom well for that
        time of year.




                                                                                                                                          Phone (503) 634-2231 • woodburnnursery.com
    ❖ Orders should contain a mix of products including both standard items such as 4", 6" or 8" bush along with premium items
        such as the braided trees or 6” hoops.
                                            We offer these guidelines when placing your orders.

     ❖ The typical flower stage we ship is Stage 1, see page 6. With prior notice we can provide plants with either tighter or more
         open flowers. Special orders, such as Stage 0, Stage 2 or specific colors such as all white, may be subject to an additional
         10% handling charge.
     ❖ Decorative wraps and/or UPC labels are available at an additional charge.
     ❖ ‘Medium’ and ‘Promo’ grades are subject to availability at the time the orders are packed. Plants that do not meet the
         qualifications outlined for our ‘Large’ grade are set aside as ‘Medium’ grades. If some of the ‘Medium’ plants do not meet the
         ‘Medium’ guidelines, these plants are set aside as ‘Promo’ grades. Availability fluctuates by crop, product and variety.
     ❖ Woodburn Nursery & Azaleas is a wholesale nursery grower, selling exclusively to the trade. The minimum order is three
         cases. Orders for less than three cases will not be accepted.
Credit Cards
         Customers can apply for an account with WN&A or pay with a VISA or MasterCard. Due to increasing bank charges,
         a 3.5% surcharge will be added to all credit card payments.
Shipping and Receiving Plants, Claims Procedure
     ❖ Please count and inspect all boxes carefully upon delivery. If you notice any shortages or damage to the boxes, have the
         driver make a notation on the delivery document prior to accepting delivery. If shipping by air, notify the cargo department.
         Contact WN&A within 24 hours to report any discrepancies or damage.
     ❖ If plants are damaged during shipping, Woodburn, as a courtesy to it’s customer’s will file a claim with the freight carrier.
         Any possible credit will be limited to the amount allowed by the freight company. Claim resolutions can take up to four
         months or longer.
     ❖ Plants cannot be protected against adverse weather conditions. Air freight carriers, UPS, FedEx and other common carriers
         explicitly disclaim any responsibility for damages due to weather. Only temperature controlled freight carriers are insured
         against such damage.
     ❖ All products become the property of the customer when they leave the WN&A warehouse.
     ❖ Woodburn makes deliveries to the airport on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Reduced shipping volume may affect
         delivery schedule. Orders received by 2 PM the day before can be included.
     ❖ Orders cancelled or rescheduled after they have been packed or shipped will be charged a 10% restocking fee plus any freight
         charges incurred. Orders for flower stages that are more open than Stage 2 cannot be canceled.
Winter Pack: Woodburn is offering ¼" foam lining for cases shipped into the colder parts of the country. The charge is $2.50 per
box. The effectiveness of this shipping method varies and we are not guaranteeing that the foam lining will protect the plants against
cold damage. Exposure to severe cold temperatures will still damage the plants.
                                 Acceptance of an order does not guarantee availability of product.

For information regarding our Dormant Azalea Program, please contact Jenny Wilson, our Dormant Azalea Customer
Service Representative at (888) 634-2232 or direct at (503) 634-3107.

Our dormant program ships plants that have been pre-cooled and are ready to force. Most varieties will show color after
3 to 5 weeks. Times vary by season and variety.

Ordering Information:
   ❖ We suggest you book orders as early as possible to ensure having the best opportunity to secure the varieties




                                                                                                                          Phone (503) 634-2231 • woodburnnursery.com
       and/or products that may be in short supply.
   ❖ Include any special instructions when submitting your order. Examples of special instructions include: “do not
       sub”, “do not short ship”, “sub to same color only” and “all red to be same variety.”
   ❖ Acceptance of an order does not guarantee availability of product.
   ❖ Orders should contain a mix of products including both standard items such as 4”, 6” or 8” bush along with
       premium items such as the braided trees or 6” hoops.

Shipping Information:
    ❖ When placing an order it is greatly appreciated if we receive all known shipping information. Information such
       as, “which carrier- truck, air or other common carrier,” and “if a drop point was used, who and where.”
    ❖ If shipping by air, include a contact name and fax number so flight information can be sent.
    ❖ In the event of a shipping claim, as a courtesy to our customers, Woodburn Nursery & Azaleas will file a claim
       with the freight carrier. Any possible credit will be limited to the amount allowed by the freight company.

Let us help you be successful with your order
When submitting an order let us know for which holiday the plants are scheduled. Shipping dates and methods can
change due to several reasons including, variable pool shipping dates, forcing time requirements for different varieties
or variability of holiday dates. When this information is noted on the order, our office can offer guidance as to the
recommended shipping date and / or method. Review your ship date carefully; this is a common source of errors.

Budded Rhododendrons
These are 1 gallon plants that are sold in two grades, 3-4 bud and 5+ buds. Customers can force these plants for
Valentines Day through Mother’s Day. Budded rhododendrons are not held in the cooler. Flower bud development is
influenced by the weather resulting in plants that may bloom earlier or later than general guidelines. All rhododendron
varieties have an H1 or H2 hardiness rating and can be planted outdoors in late spring in most areas of the country.

Spring Shipping
Each year, as we approach April shipping, substitutions in varieties may be necessary due to changes in our inventory.
Customers should list their preferred varieties on orders that are scheduled to ship during this period and we will fill
orders as requested whenever possible. If special instructions are to be followed with regard to variety substitutions,
be sure these are noted on the order.

Please give Jenny a call at (503) 634-3107 for estimated freight rates to your area or any other question regarding our
dormant program.

                                                 UNPACKING INSTRUCTIONS:
                                                 Unpack your azalea order immediately upon delivery. Always protect plants from freezing and overheating
                                                 conditions. Dormant azaleas are shipped without a pot and should be potted up immediately upon arrival
                                                 and watered, if needed. If the plants are not to be forced immediately, place the potted plants in a refrigerated
                                                 cooler (34-40°F) or in a cool house. The azaleas have adequate levels of fertility remaining in the root
                                                 ball from the growing cycle so no additional fertilizer should be needed during holding or forcing.

                                                 FORCING INSTRUCTIONS:
                                                 Once the cooling requirements of a variety have been met, dormancy can be broken and the plant forced into flower.
                                                 If azaleas are put in a greenhouse for immediate forcing, keep them at 55°F for the first week before raising the
                                                 temperature. Optimum forcing temperature is 62-65°F. Never take azaleas from a cool environment (34-45°F) and place
                                                 directly into high temperature areas (>90°F). Foliage burn and/or reduced flower quality can result.
                                                 Do not use overhead watering systems when forcing azaleas. The plant branches tend to “open up” leaving holes
                                                 in the center of the plant. We recommend hand watering at the soil level, drip irrigation, or a capillary system
                                                 such as flood floor, flood trough, or capillary mat.
                                                 The length of the forcing period will vary dependent upon the varieties ordered, the length of the cooling period
                                                 received, greenhouse bench temperature and light intensity. Extended day length and/or higher light intensities during
                    zaleas




                                                 forcing, particularly in winter months, will shorten the forcing period. This is particularly common in the more
                                                 northern states of the U.S.
                                                 Vogel type varieties are recommended for Christmas forcing and require the shortest cooling period
                                                 before flowering, usually 3-4 weeks. Non-Vogel type varieties typically require 5-6 weeks forcing time.
                                                 Gibberellic Acid: If required, Gibberellic Acid should be used when forcing plants from May through mid-November.
                                                 Spraying flower buds with (GA) is beneficial in helping produce uniform flower bud development and, in some varieties,
                                                 shortening forcing time on the bench. Begin this program when you receive the ‘new’ crop of Vogel varieties in late
                                                 spring or early summer and continue until mid-November.
                                                 There are several formulations of GA on the market. We use ProGibb 4% at a rate of 1-2 oz/gallon. Spray one
                                                 application of 1-2 oz/gallon within one week of setting plants on the greenhouse bench. If a 1 oz/gallon application
                                                 rate is used, a second application of 1 oz/gallon should be applied one week later. Wet leaves and buds uniformly with
                                                 each application to ensure good coverage. If another formulation of GA is used, adjust the application rate so the
                                                 same concentration of active ingredient is applied. Be sure to follow all the manufacturer’s recommendations and/or
                                                 limitations on the label.
