US: Village Nurseries and Kellogg Garden Products to launch video series
Featuring Gisele Schoniger, organic gardening educator for KGP, and Nicholas Staddon, Village Nurseries’ Plantsman, the series educates viewers about the best Kellogg soils and mulch to use for their landscapes. It also showcases some of Village Nurseries’ patented and exclusive plants.
The first video, available at https://youtu.be/GEtmmlxvFWM, is titled “Two Multitasker Planting Mixes for the Landscape & Garden.” It demonstrates two foundational products for landscapes and gardens: Gardner & Bloome Organics Harvest Supreme and Kellogg Garden Organics Gromulch.
Future videos in the series will cover topics such as filling and revitalizing raised beds, feeding acid loving plants, cactus, citrus, and succulents, selecting the right mulch for the landscape, building soil for native plants in low-water landscapes, planting containers, and breaking through tough soils.
David House, president and CEO of Village Nurseries, stated: “This new video series represents a continuation of our ongoing commitment to educating landscape architects and designers about the latest trends and issues in the industry. We are even more pleased that we could partner with Kellogg, one of the most respected companies in the entire landscape community.”
Ms. Schoniger has been the organic gardening educator for Kellogg Garden Products for the past 17 years providing ideas and solutions for building healthy soils and successful gardens. In her 34 years in the garden industry, she has accumulated a wide range of experience and knowledge: owned an interiorscape company, worked for the State Department of Agriculture, practiced as a horticultural therapist with senior citizens and launched an outstanding sales career by helping establish top-selling organic gardening products. She earned her degree in ornamental horticulture from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo.
Before joining Village Nurseries, Mr. Staddon spent more than 25 years as director of new plants and as national spokesperson for Monrovia Growers. Working with professional plant breeders, hybridizers, and explorers, he scoured the globe for new discoveries in the plant world. He has long been a sought out resource and guest for television and radio gardening shows across the U.S., and has worked closely with professional garden communicators, providing information on plants both old and new.
