Sakata Seed Forms New Partnership With Garden Expert P. Allen Smith
Sakata Seed America has announced a new partnership between the company’s Home Grown Vegetable division and P. Allen Smith Garden Home. Effective immediately, Sakata Home Grown is the official vegetable seed brand of P. Allen Smith. Furthermore, Smith has identified a collection of Sakata varieties and branded it under the P. Allen Smith Home Grown Seed Collection.
Smith’s national television and radio shows, digital media, printed publications and social media platforms are followed by a large number of fans. And now, gardeners and cooks alike will be able to tune into Smith’s television shows and subscribe to his YouTube channel, social media platforms and digital communications to learn more about the new collection, how the varieties are performing in the test garden and how to grow and cook with Sakata fruits and vegetables.
“A great joy is eating something you have grown in your own garden. I am delighted to share with all gardeners and chefs, beginner to expert, an exclusive P. Allen Smith Home Grown Seed Collection. I have selected some of my favorites that I grow in my garden, from Red Robin tomatoes to Broccolini broccoli. These varieties are known for their bountiful harvest and great taste, something that would delight all gardeners from their garden to their table,” says Smith.
“A return to the vegetable garden is a welcome trend which is good for the well-being of ourselves, families and communities. It may not be possible to grow an entire garden, but growing just a few things makes a difference.”
“Our goal is to provide top-quality fruit and vegetable varieties to gardeners and cooks and their families,” says Alecia Troy, Sakata’s marketing manager. “We look forward to the exposure Allen will bring to gardening and healthy eating with the P. Allen Smith Home Grown Seed Collection. Our partnership with P. Allen Smith is an exciting step toward connecting with consumers through education and passion.”
