I just can’t keep my opinionÂ Â or my enthusiasmÂ to myselfÂ for garden lifestyle products that I find to be useful, clever, beautiful, or all of the above!
I started GardenCenterTV.Com as an outlet for information for products sold at independent garden centers because I believe this is where the consumer has the best selection of plants, gardening and outdoor living products. Â
Thousands of independent garden center owners from around the world convened at Chicago’s Navy Pier for the Second Annual Independent Garden Center Show and convention. It was a shopping-fest for garden center buyers as well as an opportunity to attend marketing and educational seminars led by garden retailing experts.Â
I covered the Independent Garden Center Show in Chicago, sponsored by the publishers of Nursery Retailer and Garden Chic magazines, Jeff and Cheryl Morey. Jeff and Cheryl are powerhouse figures in the garden center trade and unrivaled leaders championing the independent garden center store business owner.
I video taped product displays, interviewed inventors of new products and services and got an eyeful of what’s in store for us all at garden centers across the country! There was a lot to see with over 600 garden product vendors present.
I will be highlighting my favorite finds during the next few weeks. Yes, you will probably see some of these goods in my private landscape design projects and on my television appearances. Why? When I find something I like, I shout it from the mountaintops!
