VIDEO: Darwin Perennials Day 2018
This year's Darwin Perennials Day welcomed more than 300 guests to The Gardens at Ball where they toured our zone 5 overwintered trials, connected with 30+ vendor exhibits, and enjoyed educational sessions on market trends.
“Now in our 9th year, Darwin Perennials Day is fast becoming THE must-see perennial plant event of the season,” says Leland Toering, Sales and Marketing Manager for Darwin Perennials. “With new products and programs to share, learning opportunities from industry experts and supply teams, plus a welcoming atmosphere to encourage great conversation, this event is always well-attended and very worth it!”
Some of this year’s highlights for Darwin Perennials Day were the living herb catalog, a perennial herb combo program that has mass-consumer appeal, as well as timing strategy tools from Darwin Perennials that provide fresh perennial color for Spring, Summer and Fall sales windows.
In addition, a presentation from Darwin Perennials product representative Chris Fifo (formerly of Swift Greenhouses) shared culture details to boost perennial profits, including PGR tips, short-day treatment recommendations, and feed control.
Co-founders of GrowIt™ the mobile gardening app, Seth Reed and Mason Day, gave insights into today’s shopper and offered ways to grow your perennial business to meet their needs.

Be sure to save the date for next year's event in late-June.
