Growers and retailers will learn about new varieties and get one-on-one answers to complex growing questions. In the afternoon, Judy Sharpton's strategic suggestions will guide retailers who want to improve their store layout, create garden center destinations and merchandise their newest retail items.

Proven Winners is encouraging early registration since last year some locations were in sold-out situations. For more information, go to Garden Center Professionals page at www.pwcertified.com.
