Proven Winners Flowering Shrubs Expands in Europe
Spring Meadow Nursery Inc. recently announced an exclusive partnership with Proven Winners Europe Ltd. to introduce its flowering shrubs under the Proven Winners brand in Europe along with ValkPlant BV.
The expansion creates a cohesive brand for what is now a global market, immediately introducing over 24 popular shrubs to the European market with the potential for 125 or more in the future.
“The Internet has created a smaller, more connected world where our U.S. marketing campaigns are reaching overseas markets,” said Tim Wood, head of product development at Spring Meadow Nursery. “European growers and consumers contact us regularly asking where to get our plants. Partnering with Proven Winners® Europe and ValkPlant connects all the dots.”
In 2004, Spring Meadow Nursery formed an exclusive partnership with Proven Winners North America to bring its ColorChoice line of woody plants under the Proven Winners brand. This initially brought over 30 varieties under the Proven Winners brand and the number grew to over 240 woody plants by the spring of 2015.
Proven Winners Europe Ltd. is a partnership between six propagators: Kientzler GMBH in Germany, Andreas Psenner E. G. in Italy, Grup Roig in Spain, Plantpol in Poland, Hansson DK in Denmark and Kernock Park Plants in Great Britain.
Beginning in the spring of 2017, Proven Winners ColorChoice flowering shrubs will be propagated and distributed through the Proven Winners Europe Ltd. grower network along with Spring Meadow’s existing European network of growers which is managed by VIP-Valkplant of the Netherlands (http://www.vipforplants.com).
