Burpee Certifies 1,000th Grower
Burpee Home Gardens recently announced that it has certified its 1,000th grower.
Now entering its fourth season of branded vegetables and flowers at retail,Burpee Home Gardens continues to grow in popularity within the industry.
“We are thrilled to sign Stacy’s Greenhouses in York, S.C., as our 1,000th certified Burpee Home Gardens grower, and we look forward to achieving even more grower certifications this season,” says Carolyn Dixon, sales manager for Burpee Home Gardens.
This year Burpee launched several new exclusive flowers, including Begonia Sparks Will Fly and Petunia Blue A Fuse, as well as the popular Bumper Crop line of grafted tomatoes.
Expansion of digital tools and resources for home gardeners, such as My Garden Designer and the Burpee Garden Coach, plus Burpee’s sponsorship of national garden television shows like “Growing A Greener World” with host Joe Lamp’l, further contribute to the success of the Burpee program.
Certified Burpee Home Gardens growers receive full marketing support for the products they sell through the branded program, including point-of-purchase materials, pot and tag options, and more. They also reap the benefits of dedicated consumer outreach to media and home gardeners.
Certified growers are also listed in Burpee’s “Find A Grower” index, where retail stores and franchises can locate their nearby plant supplier easily via a postal code search tool.
