Independent Garden Center Show 2012: Here We Come!

The Independent Garden Center Show will be the center of the garden industry universe next week, August 20-23, 2012 in Chicago!

I'm excited to be taping  new Garden Center TV videos with my posse of opinionated "trend spotters."

The GCTV contributors include award winning authors, garden experts and bloggers. 

This year, I'm joined by green expert and author, Shawna Coronado, garden photographer and social media expert, Brenda Haas, urban garden expert and trend spotter, Robin Horton, award winning blogger and soon to be author, Kylee Baumle and garden radio host and horticulture expert, Mary Ann Newcomer.

These videos will be showcased here on Garden Center TV so that you can stay up to date with "what's new for your garden!"

Not only will we be sharing our favorite new garden product finds, we'll also be taping buying guides and trend reports.

TheIndependent Garden Center Show is  produced exclusively for the local independent garden retailer and is where products are ordered for the upcoming retail season.

We will be using the hashtag #IGC12
