New Designer Tags From Horticultural Marketing And Printing Helps Retailers Promote Products

PerennialsHorticultural Marketing and Printing’s new Designer Tags, which were introduced at this year’s winter trade shows, are now available to retailers and growers nationwide.

The tags add merchandising power to plain pot stakes and strip tags.

Retailers and growers can print or hand write their logos, plant names and information on the back, and let the colorful, informative front sides attract consumers. The thermal-transfer-printable labels ensure customers get promotional messages when they look at a tag.

The fade-resistant pot stakes include tags for perennials and annuals, and can be purchased with full sun, part sun and shade descriptions. A Water Wise pot stake is also available. These 5/8- by-5-inch tags are made of 0.20 mil styrene.

The tree tag collection includes color-coded labels for fruit, shade and flowering trees. Also included are Water Wise and Christmas-themed tags. The Christmas tags work well for cut and live Christmas trees, wreaths and garland. The 1- by-9-inch tags are fade resistant with a perforated tear-off end, and made of 0.12-mil Flextherm.

All Designer Tags can be printed on Horticultural Marketing & Printing’s OnSyte XTRA 5.

6 Breeding Companies Serve Up New Varieties At Pacific Plug & Liner

Pacific Plug & Liner’s theme this year, Labyrinth, a conservatory of the world’s most captivating plants, was perfectly topped off (pun intended) with fascinators for the women and newsboy caps for the men. The PP&L team dressed their part to act out the gothic “conservatory of the world’s most captivating plants.” Truly, the displays looked like they practically popped out of a catalog, and the costumes were a nice touch. Retailers take heed, the fully merchandised displays at Pacific Plug & Liner are worthy of emulating. We’ll let the pictures tell the story of all the fabulous variety introductions presented at  Pacific Plug & Liner’s 2015 California Spring Trials, where Cultivaris, Cohen Nurseries, Histil Nurseries, Jaldety Nurseries, Southern Living/Sunset Collection and Pacific Plug & Liner all highlighted their 2016 introductions.

PittMoss Wins On Shark Tank

Mont Handley, president and CEO of PittMoss, appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank on April 17 to try to get the “sharks” to invest in his peat moss alternative. Three investors from the TV show contributed $600,000 to PittMoss for a 35 percent stake in the company. Check out this clip from ABC’s website in which Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary and Robert Herjavec discuss getting on board with the product. PittMoss is an alternative to sphagnum peat moss, made up of a mix of proprietary additives and recycled paper rescued from landfill space. Handley founded the Pittsburgh-based company in 1994.

The Continuing Evolution Of Retail

Technology will rapidly transform how retailers engage with their customers, reverberating through everything from the daily process of running a business to plant tags, containers, videos and apps. Retailers will find it less difficult to get out of the office and back into the business of working with plants and people.
