We currently export to Europe and would now like to explore the US garden centre market. We are looking for companies that supply US garden centres.

Derek,

There are a number of distributors in the US that supply garden centers with Arett Sales (http://www.arett.com/) and Commerce Corp (http://www.commercecorp.com/) being perhaps the most prominent.

Typically representatives from both firms, and many other distributors, will attend the Independent Garden Center Show: http://igcshow.com/igc2013/public/enter.aspx and/ or the National Hardware Show: http://www.nationalhardwareshow.com/ to source new products.

As a starting point though, a useful resource at the UK end, if you are not already in touch, would be Gardenex: http://www.gardenex.com/ They bring companies out to market for trade shows and arrange 'meet the buyer' events in the UK. Let me know if you'd like more details.

Best regards,
Niall Gordon
