On the HuntBy Abby Kleckler

January trade show season is here! Right now, the Southern Nursery Association Conference is taking place in Baltimore, Maryland, with the MANTS trade show starting tomorrow at the same location.

I’m heading off Thursday for the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market (AmericasMart), and then TPIE quickly follows next week in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Will you be at any of these events? If so, let me know what catches your eye. And if you’ll be in Atlanta, shoot me an email. I’d love to buy you a cup of coffee.

I’ll also keep you posted on the unique products I see at market, and we’ll share with you the Cool Product winners from TPIE. Feel free to check out the calendar on the L&GR site as you’re planning your 2019 travel.

A Huge Issue

Have you seen the January issue in your mailbox yet? It’s jam-packed with feature articles you won’t want to miss and lots of new products and plants to stock your shelves.

We’ll highlight different articles on social media during the month, but today let’s start with one that’s perfect to think about in January: 7 Steps to Craft a Merchandising Plan in 2019. Jessica DeGraaf has traveled to and worked with numerous garden centers, and she shares with you her tips.

Check out the rest of the issue here.
