Plant of the Moment!!???!!

Life's a garden

So, according to the HTA, the whole “Plant of the Month” gimic, was just not working in Garden Centres and the like to push a certain variety of plant at certain times of the year.

So, someone, whose salary I am sure could feed a third world country, has come up with the most futuristic and imaginative idea to completely re-brand this initiative by calling it “Plant of the Moment“.

Month by month, this *new* promotional plant calendar will highlight planting ideas as well as plants at their best to help customers create gardens that are full of colour and interest throughout the year.

The calendar for 2016-17 is:

January – JANUARY_CREATE A WINTER WONDERLAND

February – FEBRUARY_CAMELLIAS FOR EARLY COLOUR

March – MARCH_SPRING HAS SPRUNG WITH PERFECT PRIMULAS

April – APRIL_SPRING HAS SPRUNG WITH PERFECT PRIMULAS

May – MAY_THYME FOR HERBS

June – JUNE_COLOURFUL CLEMATIS COLLECTION

July – JULY_BRING IN THE BUTTERFLIES

August –AUGUST_GET CREATIVE WITH ORNAMENTAL GRASSES

September – SEPTEMBER_FASHIONABLY LATE PERENNIALS

October – OCTOBER_IN SEARCH OF BERRIED TREASURE

November – NOVEMBER_A CELEBRATION OF COLOURFUL CORNUS

December – DECEMBER_FESTIVE FAVOURITES – THE HOLLY AND THE IVY

So brace yourselves people, there could definitely be a case of de-ja-vu here 😉

  1. redundant and boring. I don’t see the point of doing things like this. If they want to get sales of a certain plant to rise then they are in the wrong business. Nobody wants the same garden as everyone on the street, No two gardens should EVER look the same.

    They should promote plants in general… Or ‘Plants you didn’t know existed’ and give people a chance to go ‘Ooooh’… Much like they do at the RHS shows.

    Did you also notice that the plants the chose were the ultimate basic plants ever?
