As a follow-on from National Conifer Week, which took place last week, growers and retailers are invited to the event which aims to bring conifer growers and HTA retail members together to promote the plants and share ideas and best practice.
Gardenworks’ John Connel will deliver a masterclass on the best methods of merchandising conifers and how better displays can sell more conifers. While host of the event, John Massey of Ashwood Nurseries, will give a guided tour of his conifer garden.
The event will also include the AGM of the British Conifer Group with discussion on promotional activity carried out so far through National Conifer Week, HTA Plant of the Month and PlantforLife campaigns, and a look at the Conifer Merchandising Guide produced by John Connel.
The event starts at 09.45am. To book your place contact HTA specialist groups manager Mel Foster at the HTA on 0118 9303132.
