Proven Winners will host two events for upcoming events for consumers called the Outdoor Living Extravaganza, which is designed to bring out the exterior design qualities in all gardeners. The two events are being held in Chicago on March 14 and in Boston on April 25.
The Chicago event just sold out, but there are about seats remaining for the Boston event. If grower-retailers are interest in promoting the event to their customers, they can download PDFs of a poster and flyer at the event webpage here.
The Outdoor Living Extravaganza will start at 9 a.m. with breakfast and conclude at 4 p.m. Five speakers will present, and the cost to attend is $45.
In addition to these events, Proven Winners is teaming up with Bauman Farms in Gervais, Oreg., to give away a free ‘Flirtation Pink’ diascia (a new Proven Winners variety) at the Yard, Garden and Patio show to raise money to help stop breast cancer. The first 1,000 attendees at the show February 28 will receive a plant.
Each ‘Flirtation Pink’ plant will have a tag stating to plant it in hope and memory of those affected by breast cancer. Bauman will then donate 5 percent of all product sold during the show to the Linda L. Vladyka Breast Wellness Foundation.
