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.

Cal-Poly Students And Faculty Ask Industry To Help Save Horticulture Facilities

California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, has released an update to its Master Plan that indicates that almost all of its orchards, horticulture facilities and field sites could be repurposed for buildings, including residential, and/or recreational space. According to a letter from Scott Steinmaus, the horticulture and crop science department head, the proposed changes directly affect the current orchard plantings and other long term plans for the department. The department is committed to making sure that its facilities remain invaluable teaching environments that enable its students to learn about crop, fruit and horticulture production, food safety and pest protection, in addition to providing sites for externally funded research projects that benefit the industry. Industry members are invited to submit comments to the university. According to Steinmaus, a recent eMail to the Cal-Poly community from the university president indicates that all of the input gathered through the end of May will be studied by the planning […]

Growers Working Hard To Protect Pollinators — And Their Businesses (Opinion)

Editor’s Note: This editorial was written and published just prior to the news coming out about Lowe’s phasing out neonicotinoids by 2019. However, that news doesn’t change the fact that growers have a long history as good stewards of their land and of the environment. As evidenced by the 2015 Top 100 Growers Report, the nation’s largest growers continue to adapt their production practices to be cognizant of environmental factors, worker safety, retailer preferences and consumer concerns. In light of Lowe’s announcement, growers who produce for the retailer are certainly working toward that mandate; but they’re also hopeful that the research currently underway will provide scientific reason for decisions made on production going forward. When the news broke last year that growers would be required to label plants treated with neonicotinoids at The Home Depot, and that other retailers were mandating growers to produce crops without neonics, I sucked in air and […]

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. Improved Point-Of-Sale (POS) Mobile POS systems will soon replace the traditional checkout as smartphones and tablets make it possible for retailers to perform on-the-spot transactions anywhere they have an internet connection. Retailers will find it simpler to keep track of customers’ buying preferences and manage inventory in real time. It will be harder for thieves to access unauthorized funds in the future, thanks to a new security chip placed in credit cards that requires a pin number before completing any transaction. The introduction of mobile wallet technology will also help accelerate customer engagement using interactive coupons, geofencing enhancements and […]
