Low-Maintainence Plants Shine For The Holidays

November 1, 2018

 

Low-maintenence plants are the best kinds of plants during the bustling holiday season. Whether customers are looking to make their home comforting for the winter, or give the item as a gift, the easier the better. As a result, customers will find more success with growing the plant and may even develop an interest in horticulture.

Highlight That The Plant is Low-Maintainence With a Secondary Label

Use a secondary label to simply state “low-maintainence” right on the pot. So, instead of designing a new label entirely to promote it’s ease of care, this solution draws attention, but remains simple for growers. You don’t necessarily need to go into more depth if your label or tag covers the ways in which it’s easy to care for. The secondary label simply acts as attention getter to assist customers in saving time in-store searching for an easy plant.

Pre-Wrapped Items

Again, the faster shoppers can find what they’re looking for, the better. So, consider offering your easy-care plants pre-wrapped. As a result, you imply the simplicity of the item from start to finish. Plus, customers will be able to better envision giving the item to a loved one.

Booklet-Style Labels Double as Cards

Booklet-style labels have helped many growers expand content space, but here it can help by doing the opposite. A booklet style label can also offer blank space for customers to use as a card. So, while the plant info is elsewhere, this is a simple space for people to write their best wishes for the season. Get creative with offering customers added value.

Get Gardeners Into Festive Spirits With Labels

October 30, 2018

 

Festive garden spaces are becoming more and more abundant as fall draws onward. So, help your customers enjoy their garden spaces a little longer with seasonal details. Or, for your shoppers without garden spaces, show them how to bring the great outdoors inside.

Spooky Details in Big Spaces

There are so many ways that front entry ways, or yards, can be dressed up in a fall or Halloween style. Make it easy for your customers to find the aesthetic by connecting them to community photos with a labeled, branded hashtag like #YourGardenCenterHalloween. Or, link shoppers to tutorials and DIY blog posts using labeling technology such as NFC (Near Field Communication) and QR codes.

Don’t Forget How to Show Good Lighting

Pumpkins are an obvious source of beautiful, hygge lighting in this season. However, consider how the moon garden, with glowing flowers, magical lanterns, and mystical accessories, enhance the darker seasons. For example, a glow in the dark pathway helps trick-or-treaters make it up to your front door, just as it brings added light to the seemingly constant night. Use beautiful product photography that glows with foiling to catch customers’ eyes.

Getting Small Spaces Festive Also

This doesn’t mean that apartment renters or those with small (or no) yard spaces can’t participate. Create mini fall arrangements for tabletops, balconies, and patios. Again, create tutorials that help shoppers envision how to create the autumnal aesthetic for small and indoor spaces too. As pictured above, a simple basket arrangement creates the cornucopia ¬†look while also being easy to move from the dinner table to a side table when hosting for Thanksgiving.
