The exclusive Burpee® Space Savers plant collection is sure to excite today’s space-challenged gardeners.
Burpee, a known and trusted brand in the marketplace since 1876, has the pulse of today’s market. As consumer demand for growing and eating local, fresh produce remains a powerful force, our national plant brand is here to help you succeed in attracting new gardeners.
Research shows that both Millennials and Baby Boomers tend to prefer smaller, more efficient homes. This means they have less backyard space for a veggie garden. Growing and selling Burpee vegetable plants in patio-ready pots is an easy way to satisfy the needs of today’s consumers.
The Space Savers collection from Burpee meets this demand. Retailers can offer them in sizes from small (4-in./10-cm) through large containers, providing shoppers with the fastest way to grow the freshest vegetables. The Space Savers collection is also a great entry point for greenhouses and retailers interested in growing a branded vegetable program and grabbing higher margin sales.
New for 2017 are Burpee’s Take 2 Tomato Combos, which pair a delicious slicer tomato with a sweet cherry variety in one container. They ripen at the same time with the same size plants for a steady supply of great-tasting tomatoes. Take 2 combos are best-suited for 14-in./35-cm or larger patio pots, which offer a premium option for you to sell at retail. Three combos are available for Spring:
- Lights (BushSteak Slicer + Patio Choice Yellow Cherry)
- Camera (Homeslice Slicer + Sweetheart of the Patio Cherry)
- Action (BushSteak Slicer + Baby Boomer Cherry)
Fresh Pickles F1 Cucumber is the perfect pickling cucumber for gardeners with limited space. This variety thrives in large containers. It produces up to 50 crunchy and delicious cucumbers per plant on 4-ft (1.22-m) vines. The fruit grows to 5 in. (13 cm) and produces exceptional pickles.
