NGB’s 2018 ‘New Varieties’ Now Available
For more than 25 years, National Garden Bureau (NGB) has been showcasing and promoting its member’s new plant varieties in the program appropriately named “New Plants.”
Garden retailers and growers can visit https://ngb.org/new-plants and search through 100+ new plants. You might have seen some of them at the 2017 California Spring Trials or summer trade shows.
This is a one-stop-shop for the newest of the new, NGB says. Use this link to view ornamentals and this link to view edibles. Photos, descriptions and other resources are available on National Garden Bureau’s website at www.ngb.org.
NGB has long been promoting its member’s new plants. The entire industry — breeders, brokers, seed companies, growers, nurseries and garden centers — are urged to highlight these flowers and plants when planning their 2018 marketing.
Publicity of the 2018 “New Plants” to the garden writer community began in August 2017 during the GWA Annual Symposium in the NGB sponsored “New Plant Showcase.” Publicity direct to the consumer will begin in January 2018 via the NGB e-newsletters and social media posts. Visit the National Garden Bureau website to download photos, logos, slide shows and much more. These tools will help the home garden industry promote these new varieties to consumers and encourage gardening.
Speakers who are speaking about new varieties can download PowerPoint presentations for edibles and/or ornamentals from the NGB SlideShare account.
