Sharing the LoveBy Teresa McPherson

It’s finally February and Valentine’s Day is coming quickly! My local garden center is in the spirit with pink and red displays that can be seen from across the parking lot.

Does your store hold any special Valentine’s or spring events? We recently featured Down to Earth Garden Center, which hosts an annual Valentine’s Dinner in their greenhouse. The first dinner seated 30 people, and they were expecting to have more than 75 for this year’s dinner. In fact, it’s been so successful that they’ve adapted the concept to greenhouse events other times of the year with different themes.

What events have you held that have been a success? Have some new ones in the works for 2020? Shoot me an email and we could show your event some love in a future issue of L&GR!
