Garden Splendor® Announces New Showcase Plants for 2008

Garden Splendor® by Overdevest Nurseries Introduces 2008 Showcase Plants at Fashion In Bloom, Sept. 19-22, 2007.

BRIDGETON, N.J. Sept. 1, 2007 – The Garden Splendor® brand by Overdevest Nurseries will present its new 2008 Showcase Plants at this year’s Fashion In Bloom event, held Sept.19-22, 2007. The Garden Splendor® plant selections will be on display at the Homestead Growers site in Davidsonville, MD.

Overdevest Nurseries / Garden Splendor® management will be present and on-site to share information about the brand and new additions to the product line in person and in the form of a take-home meia kit. The kit will include an Associate Press-ready Frequently Asked Questions page regarding the Garden Splendor® brand, a sample Remember Me® plant identification marker, detailed plant profiles, and high-resolution close-up and landscape application images.

“We look forward to sharing the new 2008 Garden Splendor® Showcase selections with the independent garden center community at this year’s Fashion In Bloom event,” said Ed Overdevest, president of Overdevest Nurseries / Garden Splendor®. “The plant material on display has been chosen and incorporated into the product line for its quality, innovation and reliability, which represent the Garden Splendor® concept of outstanding genetic qualities with a proven record of performance under various garden conditions.”

Individual interviews with Overdevest and David Wilson, director of marketing for Garden Splendor®, are welcome, and may be pre-scheduled by contacting Eberly Public Relations at 866-574-2906 or seeing Sally Credille at the event.

Post-event media kits and interviews will also be available by calling the aforesaid number.

The new Garden Splendor® 2008 Showcase Plants will include the following:

  • Clematis ‘Daniel Deronda’
  • Coreopsis ‘Pinwheel’
  • Echinacea ‘Pink Double Delight’
  • Geum ‘Mango Lassi’
  • Hakonechloa ‘All Gold’
  • Heuchera ‘Peach Flambe’
  • Mukdenia ‘Crimson Fans’
  • Silene ‘Rolley’s Favourite’
  • Veronica prostrate ‘Goldwell’

Garden Splendor® will be incorporating components of its award-winning PANTS trade show booth design at the Homestead site to display its new 2008 Showcase Plants.

Wilson developed the display to showcase the high level of quality and consistency that the Garden Splendor® plant products possess. By displaying them individually and elevating them on “tree shelves,” the plants are raised to eye-level and above, allowing visitors to view the products at a glance. The display also reserves floor space, which is valuable in smaller garden centers where square footage is at a premium. By adding inventive and low-cost display methods like these to showcase plant material, the retailer can achieve premium prices and higher profit margins.

Ultimately, the display is indicative of Overdevest Nurseries’ innovative and resourceful approach to marketing, and demonstrates how the Garden Splendor® program is based on creative yet realistic and practical objectives for retailers.

Independent garden center managers / owners, landscapers, and growers may contact Overdevest Nurseries / Garden Splendor® for additional information by calling 1-888-842-6567or logging onto the web at www.gardensplendor.com.
