Construction is well underway on the new Aris structures in Fort Myers.

“In view of changes in the horticulture industry, a
comprehensive review of current and future production needs concluded that
combining the operations was the best way to satisfy customer needs and improve
overall business performance,” said president and CEO Bill Rasbach. “Having the
new greenhouses and shipping from one location provides improved growing
conditions and efficiencies in transportation.”

As a result, the Parrish facility, the smaller and older of the two, will be closed in phases
and will cease operation around Dec. 31, 2010.

New greenhouses are under construction in Fort Myers
and will be fully operational by the end of the year. There will be no change
in the product mix, which includes Keepsake azaleas, tropical hibiscus,
mandevilla, potted rose and rooted garden mum and aster programs.
