Autumn 2012


Autumn Rush

autumn_rushAutumn has a rush season, just like spring. It’s not as big and frenzied, but buyers are stocking up their inventories for the autumn holidays that are around the corner. Most buyers look at the next few months as relentlessly boring, garden-wise: it’s mums, mums, mums, and more mums.

Not true—fall offers an abundance of interesting merchandise for both retailers and landscapers. We find that those who offer more than mums will wind up selling more mums, too. After all, you can get mums anywhere; savvy growers offer interesting alternatives in addition to mums.
