Fargro managing director Paul Sopp starts the events on 7 September with a talk on biopesticides. "The time is right for biopesticides," he said. "They will become a major part of the pest control strategy.
"There have been a couple of developments over the past year and hopefully there will be a couple more by the time of the talk, so I will be specifically looking at those new products."
Garden centre consultant Eve Tigwell will run a seminar on inspiring garden centre Christmas displays. "What I'm doing is a mix between showing some exciting Christmas displays and actually building part of a display on site, so it will be pictures and practical," she explained.
Food Marketing Network founder Rob Ward will discuss food retailing in garden centres.
