In addition to the plant varieties we list, a R2 specialty service is custom growing. Once a custom grow is approved, the minimum for seed items is only 3 trays and vegetative items is only 200 cuttings.

Please submit your order to R2 for a competitive bid. Our pricing structure provides small and medium-sized growers with the best possible price on plugs and liners. The quote service is no charge to you and ensures you are getting the best price.

In addition to custom-grown items, we maintain an extensive “at-once” inventory. Our real-time inventory management system ensures trays ordered online (www.raker.com/availability) are truly in-stock. When you order a tray from R2 Availability, you will receive that tray.

R2 ships directly to your greenhouse. Our trialed and true R2 Box delivers high-quality plants intact and ready-to-grow. Additionally, a 50-tray order qualifies for private (Grower Truck) delivery. Simply ask and we will place your order on our patented shipping cradle system. Plant products ship primarily via FedEx, UPS, and Grower Truck.

Preparation is vital to success. R2 rewards readiness with two discounts that apply regardless of the season: Early Order and Volume. Early Order provides a 10% discount on any order placed by November 1st. Volume provides an automatic discount of between 8-33% (depending on your order history).

R2 is a simple solution for your plant tag purchases. If tags are not required as part of a patent, let us know and we will deliver them with your plants. Our small bundle sizes (and delivery savings) make ordering tags from R2 a smart choice.

We primarily grow product in 6 tray sizes (3 plug & 3 liner trays). In addition to these standard tray sizes, we have the ability to grow product in an additional 24 tray sizes.

In addition to grown-to-order plants, Raker offers an online inventory available for immediate delivery. Log on and order REAL-TIME from our Availability. If the plant is listed for a specific ship week, that plant is available.

We continuously research and evaluate new and existing plant varieties. Our yearly Trials provide more than five acres of over 3,000 plant varieties in three Trial categories: row, hanging basket, and container . Please visit us during the summer to experience our world renowned trials.

Our goal is to continue providing the quality plants you desire. We believe open communication is vital to maintain this goal. To prove this, each Essential in the List offers a Raker team member to contact with questions.
