P Allen Smith’s Garden2Blog II
Recently, P Allen Smith hosted his second annual Garden2Blog event at his Garden Home Retreat, just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas. Allen invites 20 or so garden bloggers from across the country to visit his home, learn more about his work and hear about the latest plants and gardening gadgetry.
Proven Winners is a proud to work so closely with Allen and was happy to be a sponsor of the event for the second year. Allen and Proven Winners also partner together on the P Allen Smith Platinum Collection. The collection consists of annuals, perennials and shrubs that Allen himself selected after seeing the plants in trials and at Proven Winners locations. Allen calls these the "Platinum Collection" because they have great visual impact, are especially loaded with color, and at the same time are low maintenance.
Several of our Garden Gurus (Genevieve Schmidt, Northwest Guru is pictured here) were invited to the event and have written posts about their experiences. To get a sense of what it was like to attend, check out these posts:
"Proven Winners and I share the mission of encouraging people to discover all the pleasures of gardening. By working together, we combine creative ideas and beautiful plants that inspire a lifelong love of gardening."
