The Container Gardens Program At Roger’s Gardens Creates Gorgeous Designs – And Sales [Slideshow]

Rogers Gardens interior combo garden in wire containerRoger’s Gardens’ Chris Nichols wears many hats at the Orange County, Calif., store, including heading up the florist department and creating new business opportunities. One of the new business opportunities Nichols created a few years ago was a combo garden assembly line. A crew of employees’ full focus is to create hundreds of container gardens.

What makes this crew unique is that they work in an almost factory-like fashion, with each employee assigned to a task. One person preps the plants for the rest of the crew to assemble into gardens. Then a staff member will create combo garden after combo garden based on one design. That sample combo garden, however, is created by a skilled designer. Each station in this assembly area is assigned a different design, which is then placed in a staging area ready for the sales floor.

Take a look at how the combo garden assembly line works, then see a number of finished designs on display on the sales floor.
