3 Reasons It Pays to Visit Us

Take advantage of reward travel to attend two new grower-focused events here at Four Star. 

Both Grower Week and Four Star University will feature grower-focused programs led by our growing staff.  Shown here: Dennis Crum, Director of Growing Operations.

We get many grower questions during the year and are glad to help with ideas and techniques that work for our operations.   But we realized that dedicated time to learning, questions and presentations would offer much more value to growers involved in day-to-day greenhouse operations.  That's the reason we developed two new grower-focused events for 2013: 

• Grower Open House, August 5 — 9; and
Four Star University, Sept. 10.

Join Us for Grower Open House Aug. 5-9

We're excited to present a new event — Grower Open House — which coincides with the Michigan Garden Tour.  Plan on joining us to see our extensive display gardens in full bloom, where we have a huge variety of Proven Winners® and Proven Selections® plants in sun and shade beds, hanging baskets and upright container combinations.  It's your opportunity to see these spectacular plants in action, ask questions, and learn more about Proven Winners programs.

Many growers told us this is better timing to visit and we encourage you to bring your employees and colleagues during Grower Open House.  We will also be dedicating three days during Grower Open House to our Key Account customers.

In addition, we've scheduled several special items through the week:

  • Multiple presentations on Proven Winners products and programs
  • Facility tours
  • Staff available to answer your questions
Visitors at Growing Week will see our Display Gardens in full bloom.  Shown here:  Display Garden Supervisor Pat Seibel leads a group through the gardens.
