Do You Grow and Sell?By Tim Hodson

If you do, then you might want to mark Nov. 5 and 6 on your calendar.

Those are the dates that OFA’s Grow & Sell for Profit Conference will take place at the Embassy Suites hotel in Raleigh, N.C.

The Grow & Sell for Profit Conference will “focus on delivering take-home business solutions that can rev up your business.” This two-day conference and trade show provides growers and garden center retailers with the latest technical and business education to help them be successful in today’s challenging marketplace.

A sampling of the topics that will be presented this year include : expanding your customer base; diagnosing and managing pest and disease problems; relationship marketing for garden centers; embracing the “Go Local” movement; plant branding; and dealing with plant health issues.
