The Western in Kansas City is known for innovation and interaction and the Western Nursery & Landscape Association will deliver again on January 16-18, 2019 in Kansas City.
New at the 2019 Western is “The Sheridan Nurseries’ Way to Success with Art Vanden Enden,” a lunch & workshop for garden center owners & managers. “Hiring Right and Training,” as well as “Merchandising for Retail Success,” will be the focus of the half-day workshop.
Targeting design teams, Roy Diblik, Northwind Perennial Farm, will present a design workshop. Roy will discuss 16 plants and the value of coming to know them, layout patterns and evaluate them based on stewardship needs, discuss gardening practices and discuss the transformational time within the horticultural industry.
Native plant “geeks,” and those not so geeky, can connect with like-minded native plant professionals at a Thursday evening gathering, a 2019 Western event in partnership with the Kansas City Native Plant Initiative.
