Session Description

In today’s garden realities, we need to understand the new values of our changing consumer blend. Plants and their related products have become a means of achieving these values. It’s more about what plants can do than what they are, such as providing privacy, cleaning toxins from our homes, attracting pollinators, providing new food flavours and creating a greater sense of happiness and well-being. This is a quantum shift in the role plants play in people’s lives. Don’t miss this opportunity to plug in.
