"Today's Garden Center Column " To create awareness of this book and its topic, an online monthly column is published with Today's Garden Center magazine. For details, see link http://www.todaysgardencenter.com/magazine/?storyid=1971 “For the ‘original GREEN industry’ it’s more important now than ever before to communicate effectively with our ever-changing end consumer - outdoor decorators and home gardeners. Staying relevant to emerging generations of customers will be one of our biggest tasks over the next decade and communication is the key. Ideas abound in ABCs of Green Industry Communications as Sylvia Wright profiles some of the best marketers and communicators in the business, bringing fresh takes and new approaches to attracting and engaging customers.” – Bill Calkins, business manager at Ball Horticultural Company in West Chicago, Illinois. “The green industry does so much good for our communities and our world ... and we should be shouting that to the rooftops....

Morrow, PhD, retired botanist and horticulturist< Less
