Smith, Central Garden & Pet PartnerSource: Central Garden & Pet Company

Central Garden & Pet Company announced last week that it formed an exclusive relationship with renown gardening expert P. Allen Smith. Timed to coincide with the release of Smith’s latest book, P. Allen Smith’s Container Gardens, the relationship is designed to extend the awareness of the growing trend of outdoor lifestyles, particularly container gardening.

“”We are very excited to have our Norcal Pottery and New England Pottery lines partner with P. Allen Smith,”” commented Neil Pincus, president of Garden Brands of Central Garden & Pet. “”A growing trend in gardening is the blending of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Combining our leading, innovative, high-quality pottery lines with P. Allen Smith’s national exposure, garden design and educational content, we believe, will simplify and continue to energize container gardening and the broader outdoor lifestyles category.””

P. Allen Smith hosts a nationally syndicated gardening series, “”P. Allen Smith Gardens”” and a PBS series called “”P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home.”” He makes frequent appearances on The Weather Channel, the NBC Today Show and is featured in numerous garden-related and women’s magazines, such as Cottage Living and Woman’s Day. Currently, Smith is on a nationwide tour promoting his book, which features several Norcal Pottery and New England Pottery designs.

“”I have admired both Norcal Pottery and New England Pottery’s outstanding quality and designs for many years,”” commented Smith. “”Their dedication to innovative colors and textures coincides with my mission of helping people create beautiful outdoor living spaces, blurring the lines between the indoors and the outdoors and creating joyful spaces for living.””
