Are you under 40? Do you know someone in the industry who hasn’t hit that milestone birthday yet and is doing an incredible job?

Our sister publication, GPN, wants to hear about them. You have just six days left to nominate someone for GPN’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2018.

Let’s represent the retail side of the industry! You’ve read from many 40 Under 40 alumni in our Fresh Perspectives column, and it could be your turn this year. Visit GPN’s website to read all of the details and nominate someone by Jan. 29.

First Issue of 2018

Have you picked up the January issue yet? If not, here’s a link to the digital edition. The pages are full of ideas for your business. Read four steps to reach more people online or how to breed passion and purpose in your staff.

Christina Salwitz talks landscape design trends and what every person, whether a first-time homeowner or a retiree, has in common.

A new-for-2018 column makes its debut: Event Central. This will focus on one event every month, with McDonald Garden Center’s hugely successful Outdoor Show up first.

This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. There are 30 new varieties you won’t want to miss, and dozens of new products that could fit into your lineup.

As always, let me know what you think, and I’d love to hear what you’re most looking forward to in 2018!
