Garden centre market in US

Question

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.

Answer

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.
