Cool Product Awards from Garden Retailers Announced at TPIE 2017

This year’s Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) once again served as a great spot for the Cool Product Awards, an annual collaboration between TPIE, Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (FNGLA), and The Garden Center Group. Retailers involved in the organizations made their way around the TPIE trade show floor and identified the products that stood out the most to them.

“I offer a special thank you to everyone who participated in the Cool Products of TPIE selection process,” said Danny Summers of The Garden Center Group, a business group that provides solutions to operational issues facing independent garden retailers. “It was a tough job, but it was exciting and a great experience.”
