On this #plantchat episode, we discuss the Proven Winners brand, to help shed some light on their plants, operations and what it takes to bring their plants to homeowners and landscapers throughout North America. Our guest is Stacey Hirvela, who is an accomplished horticulturist and marketer at Spring Meadows Nurseries, the company behind the Proven Winners brand.
Stacey provides some background on how the brand was formed and the development of their plants. It's a fascinating story and one that many plant geeks don't know or take the time to think about. Proven Winners does an outstanding job to ensure that the plants and varieties that bear their name, are available when and where you shop.
There is a lot of research and development that goes into their plants so they perform well once you put them into your landscape. While it's not something many homeowners or property managers think about, they can be assured, that if they see the brand on the shelf, the odds are the plant will perform well with proper care and the right location.
