As many of you know, the CVNLA is spearheading a “Fall is for Planting” campaign emphasizing the benefits and advantages to planting in the fall. We have contacted every independent Garden Center and Nursery in the Metro Richmond area and everyone has agreed to promote this campaign. In the very near future you will be seeing “Fall is for Planting” banners (the official version is attached) proudly displayed all across town. In addition, the banners will be displayed at the State Fair, the Go Green Garden Festival, the Lewis Ginter Plant Sale and on PBS’s “Virginia Home Grown.” The Richmond Times-Dispatch will have a feature article on fall planting in mid September and have several mentions in Richard Nunnally’s weekend gardening column. The more all of us reinforce this idea of fall planting the more all of us will benefit from it.
Thanks, in advance, for featuring “Fall is for Planting” on your own web pages and Facebook pages, fall advertising and communications with your customers. You are more than welcome to use the “Fall is for Planting” art in these communications. Click above logo for high resolution copy of the banner.
We have prepared some “talking points” that you are more than happy to use. As follows:
Special thanks to Bill Dutcher of Colesville Nursery, Emily Orr of Glen Allen Nursery, Karen Batalo and Richard Nunnally. Here’s to a great fall season!
Jim Hassold, President, CVNLA
