Disclaimer: For the next two months I’m going to sound like a broken record. But it’s for your own good … it really is.

It’s that time of year when you’re busy as a bee (or about to be), and your place is stocked and looking good. It’s also that time of year to remember to grab your camera or phone and take pictures of your best displays. Why? Because I want you to enter AND win the 2014 Merchandiser of the Year contest.

Need an incentive … or three? This year’s winner will receive three great, sales-generating prizes totaling over $3,000 provided by the contest’s sponsors — Braun Horticulture, Dramm and MasterTag. Click here to check them out and learn how easy it is to participate.

The Lookbook

You know what they say: “A picture’s worth a thousand words.” And if that’s the case, we have well over 100,000 words to inspire your next display. Visit our website’s new Inspiration Book feature. It’s packed full of photos for you to get some great visual ideas for your garden center. From signage to entrances, we have you covered.

How’s Your Spring Training?

To help you with your ongoing employee training efforts, on April 29, GPN magazine will present a webinar for growers and retailers on how you can inspire and refresh your team for the spring season.

“What Spring Training Really Should Look Like” will be presented by Dr. Bridget K. Behe, Ph.D., professor, Department of Horticulture, Michigan State University. It will take place April 29 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

Enthusiastically,

Pete
