There are a lot of great occasions to purchase plants and trees throughout the year. If your wholesale nursery sells to retail stores, it’s never a bad idea to coordinate the presentation of your products with the holiday or time of year most closely associated with that plant or tree. For seasonal flowering plants or shrubs, matching the design and colour scheme of your plant tags gives the consumer a sense that the product has been grown just for the occasion. This creates a kind of exclusivity, and the result is increased sales.
When customers see plants labeled in a way that coincides with the time of year or the upcoming holiday, the purchase seems more appropriate. For example, ivies and plants with clovers sell exceedingly well in February and March, in anticipation for St. Patrick’s Day. If there is a way to prepare for these holidays in advance, it’s worthwhile to take advantage and preorder your plant tags accordingly.
