Q: Are you featured in a magazine with your Sunflowers?
A: Yes, in fact we are in this month's edition of SuperFloral magazine. We were interviewed by Debra Prinzing and she wrote a great article about merchandising Sunflowers.
Q: Do tell! A: I’d like to quote a few paragraphs from the article as they are very insightful. “There are fields across the country producing Sunflowers for seed and vegetable oil, both products found on supermarket shelves. But it’s in the floral department where ornamental Sunflowers really shine, serving as a beacon that excites and inspires shoppers to take home bright, cheery bunches as a habitual practice.” Boy, does Debra ever hit the nail on the head there! We love to see Sunflowers in grocery carts.
Q: That’s interesting. What else is in the article?
A: We also talk about the fact that we chose to specialize and to be the best in the world in one flower. We picked the Sunflower because we thought we could grow it year-round, which was true. We have branched out to work with breeders which resulted in the lighter colored centers which are popular in the spring time however our fall colors are still the very best!
Q: Anything else?
A: Yes. Debra got a kick out the fact that I said, “we want to make our Sunflowers the banana of the flower department.” Bananas are the number one selling item, volume-wise, in any grocery store. Is it any wonder that's our goal?
A: Without question! See below. And, here is the link to the article https://www.dropbox.com/s/72g72kieliro5kz/09%20Debra%20Prinzing%20SF.pdf?dl=0
