PVG, D.S. Cole Growers to Host Open House
Building on the success of more than two decades of open house events, Pleasant View Gardens (PVG) and D.S. Cole Growers are at it again — opening their doors to industry professionals from around the world to visit their greenhouses and gardens on Aug. 2nd.
“It sounds cliché, but after 22 years, we still get excited by all the opportunities this event affords attendees,” says Andy Huntington, national sales manager of Pleasant View Gardens. “Think about it. Where can you go to learn about all the wonderful introductions from Proven Winners, pick up new ideas on how to successfully grow and sell these outstanding plants, rub elbows with some of the industry’s top professionals, AND have a little fun? Precious few. Which is what makes this event so popular with growers from all over.”
This year, Pleasant View and Cole will be showcasing more breathtaking annuals and recipes than ever before. Plus, they’ll have hundreds of perennials, shrubs and vegetables on display, including PVG’s own Savor Edibles & Fragrants, as well as the new Proven Harvest line of herbs, vegetables and fruit from Proven Winners.
D.S. Cole owner, Doug Cole, is equally excited. “Getting a chance to show everyone what’s coming next year is always a rush for us. Even more so when we’re featuring plants that many may not have seen at Spring Trials.”
Attendees will also be given the opportunity to help chart the horticultural future by voting on some of the plants and recipes that will be created and trialed in the coming year. And, as always, visitors will learn the importance of how strong genetics deliver greater grower success — something on which Pleasant View, Cole and Proven Winners have always prided themselves. Open House guests will also be able to get answers to technical questions from staffers in-the-know, while gaining valuable knowledge networking with other industry pros. Add free refreshments and a tasty catered lunch, and the event’s a hit all around.
The 22nd annual Open House runs from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Aug. 2nd, giving attendees a full day to tour and enjoy the beautiful gardens at Pleasant View and D.S. Cole — both of which are in Loudon, New Hampshire, and just a short drive from each other.
