The IGC Show & Our 2010 Catalog

Special Thanks to National Geographic for the photo. We didn't have time to take photos of Chicago!

Last week we exhibited at the Independent Garden Center Show in Chicago. This show attracts garden center owners/buyers from all over the country to take part in discussions about industry trends as well as introduce them to the latest garden themed products for next year. Here are some photos of Melanie & Mark manning the booth. We were so busy, we forgot to bring the digital camera, so let's give thanks to the cell phone camera!

The turnout was great! We saw/met/talked with a ton of people including Mel Bartholomew, creator of the Square Foot Gardening system. Patti Moreno, the Garden Girl was also there checking out the most interesting wheelbarrow we've seen in the booth next to us. We also talked with Mr Brown Thumb, a Chicago-based garden blogger who posted some kind words about our Vita Sementi Italian seed range. Read his post here.

There were some really great garden supply items we saw at the show that are going into our 2010 catalog. But our lips are sealed as far as what they are for just a little bit longer!

Speaking of which, our 2010 catalog is in full design mode. Right now we've been busy crossing all the t's and dotting all the i's - making sure every page is chock full of seed varieties you'll love to grow & must have garden gadgets. We're really excited about the new redesign/look of it and we hope you are as well. If you haven't reserved your copy yet, add your name to our mailing list by clicking here.

  1. Hi,

    I was just looking over my blog stats and saw a hit from your blog. Thanks for the link. I just wanted to stop by and say it was nice talking to you and learning about your seed line. Keep up the good work.
