The one day master classes, designed to help garden centre teams help their customers ‘love their plot’, with take place in late February/early March 2015 at a number of venues across the UK.
They are aimed at garden centre teams from the plant area, garden care and outdoor living the sessions and will cover different aspects of the campaign. This will include the findings of the consumer research into what 30-45 year olds want from their outdoor spaces along with information about how the campaign is being publicised, how retailers can link in with the activity from garden centres, before and after garden concepts and ideas on maximising sales opportunities.
The master classes will run from 9.30 am - 4.30 pm with tea/coffee and biscuits provided. The cost of attending is £75 per person (plus VAT). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Love the Plot You’ve is a new garden industry campaign to demystify and popularise gardening amongst consumers who see the pastime as hard work and primarily for older people. The campaign is targeting consumers aged between 30-45 years old who have access to a garden or outdoor space but don’t make great use of it.
A consumer website will go live in early 2015 which will provide inspiration and ideas for this audience. There will also be a series of regional roadshows taking place across the country providing real examples of different themed gardens and projects.
