We have just come back from Loblaw's annual media launch of the 2012 gardening Insider's Report.
Loblaw's garden guru, Peter Cantley introduces the many partners that bring all those great plants to your local garden centre at any of the Loblaw family of stores.
They gather a selection of garden communicators into a room at the Toronto Botanical gardens. Peter and the Canadain growers entice us with the newest flowers and plants headed for the local gardens centres in early May.
In a world of big corporations, I am always amazed to see how many of the plant growers are family run, second and sometimes third generation enterprises. They have long time partnerships with Loblaw and maintain a personal relationship with them in a big corporation world.
Sharing the common goal to produce a wide selection of the best and the beautiful, Loblaw stores and Canadian growers work hard to keep gardeners planting and growing colourful and unique gardens.
