More than ever, consumers are investing in landscaping and home gardens, looking for dynamic colors and textures to invigorate familiar spaces. Combinations are an easy and dependable way to satisfy this demand, and Four Star’s Bundled Combination Kits offer growers a great way to easily add combinations to your production. These easy-to-order kits are designed with the grower in mind and feature popular Proven Winners® varieties that grow well together and are proven to sell at retail.

Julie Bergmoser, Regional Sales Representative at Four Star Greenhouse, explains how Bundled Combination Kits take the guesswork out of planting. “They save time because growers don’t have to figure out what varieties work well together. It’s already done. You can choose from more than 300 colorful, winning combinations. One kit yields 52 combinations that can be easily planted in hanging baskets, patio pots or both.”

Julie notes the added benefit of kits that already come with a built-in marketing plan, explaining that “The marketing is done for you, too. Our hangtags double as point-of-purchase advertising, which means consumers instantly recognize the Proven Winners brand and know there is a quality combination of plants in that container.”

From easy-to-grow recipes that feature sun or shade varieties, seasonal and patriotic colors, or thrilling tropical flair, there’s something for everyone. But where to start, with over 300 fantastic recipes?
