In Greenhouse Grower’s annual State Of The Industry Survey, we asked how your operation is living the GROW initiative’s five pillars: cultivate new customers, demand quality, drive consumer success, invest in the industry, and sharpen business management. We also wanted to see how you connect with your customers and what types of things you have done to help them be more successful and find new ways to enjoy plants.
