As spring unfolds at Perry Wellness Center, creativity is blossoming along with the flowers. Attention has turned to the cultivation of some new varieties of flowers, shrubs, and trees.
“With grafting to share various colors on the same plant, we try of offer these different looks to our customer,” market manager Phyllis Smith explains. “Still, we offer common species of plants and shrubs.”
In addition to propagating more varieties of plants, staff and peers also pay attention to plant placement. Young plants need the sunniest locations for increased growth, so baskets and pots are shifted to new areas as the need arises.
Another type of plant movement is also important, as Stuart Perry explains. “As our market traffic increases each year with our plant varieties and vegetables, we must plan with peers on movement of plants for increased visibility.” In other words, you can’t buy it if you can’t see it!
Customer volume is increasing at Rudy’s Happy Patch Market as the days brighten and market offerings increase. Excitement fills the air as peers prepare to greet and serve each new day’s visitors. Come join us!
