WEBINAR: This free, 30-minute "Enchanting with Fairy Gardening" webinar is a look into one retailer’s success and commitment to this growing category. Consider the potential of mixed containers and packaged plant collections in a new and changing marketplace.  Discover easy tips for great merchandising that can attract customers, boost sales and allow you to exercise your creativity.  TV personality and landscape designer Jamie Durie explains why vertical gardens are no longer just for commercial buildings and high-end homes. Aroma Workshop in Chicago discovers it's all about asking the right questions to help customers have a personalized experience.
