Sometimes maintaining the position as one of the country’s top-performing wholesale growers of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and herbs requires more than just strategic thinking, incredible customer support, and robust programs. Sometimes it takes the ability to see into the future. To understand consumer trends and where they’re headed. To know what to grow when. And to successfully introduce the next big thing. In the case of Pleasant View Gardens, this can all be wrapped up in their 2023 Preview Guide, which reveals the hottest new plants on tap for the year ahead.
“This is an exciting part of every year for us…giving our customers a look behind the veil, so to speak,” smiles Andy Huntington, national sales manager at Pleasant View Gardens. “Showing them what’s coming and what’s going to be hot a year in advance. This helps them plan ahead for their operation and customers, which helps them maintain a competitive edge.”
