More than 550 gardening consumers joined Proven Winners for its Grand Garden Show on Mackinac Island from Aug. 25-27.

During the three day event, attendees were able to tour 11 private gardens, enjoy cocktails and dinner at the Grand Hotel and learn about a wide variety of gardening topics from presenters such as P. Allen Smith.

“We were overwhelmed by the gracious response of the attendees and all who were involved, and it was wonderful to have many retailers also attend,” said Marshall Dirks, director of marketing and public relations for Proven Winners. “We cannot be more thankful to have such a passionate and loyal fan base that loves flowers and gardening as much as we do. At each event, we learn as much as our audience does, as experiences are shared alike. We plan to make next year’s event even greater.”

The Grand Garden Show was an extension of the one day events Proven Winners hosts around North America. In the spring of 2014 the Outdoor Living Extravaganzas will take place in Milwaukee, Wis. (Feb. 1); Minneapolis, Minn. (Feb. 8); and Grand Rapids, Mich. (March 8). Plans for a 2014 Grand Garden Show are already underway.
