PVG, D.S. Cole Open House Set for Aug. 1
Pleasant View Gardens (PVG) and D.S. Cole Growers will open their doors to industry professionals from around the world to visit their greenhouses and gardens on Aug. 1.
“It sounds cliché, but after 23 years, we still get excited by all the opportunities this event affords attendees,” said Andy Huntington, national sales manager, PVG. “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 annuals and recipes than ever before, including hundreds of perennials, shrubs, and vegetables on display, including PVG’s own Savor Edibles & Fragrants, as well as the Proven Harvest line of herbs, vegetables, and fruit from Proven Winners.
D.S. Cole owner Doug Cole intends to show attendees plants that many may not have seen at Spring Trials.
“Some highlights include new Ivy Geraniums, Lantana, and Mandevilla. Also, don’t miss out on our new Zebra collection. What is a Zebra? Visit us to find out!”
Attendees will be able to vote on some of the plants and recipes that will be created and trialed in the coming year, get answers to technical questions from staffers in-the-know, and gain knowledge by networking with other industry pros.
The open house takes place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and includes lunch and refreshments.
