Grandiflora won another award at The Landscape Show in Orlando at the beginning of October, “Best Themed Exhibit”. We dressed as ship-wrecked sailors on a beach with our sail boat and a background of colorful tropical and blooming plants from the nursery. Our exhibit took the trade show’s optimistic theme of “Full Sail Ahead” and added a twist to reflect the last few year’s struggle with the worsening economy. Our rustic signage had messages that read “Survived the wreck” and “Weathered the storm” and finally, “Smooth sailing ahead”.
We are optimistic about the coming spring. Hopefully 2012 will mark the beginning of a new era of higher nursery sales.
