President's Choice and Stokes Seeds Summer Media Luncheon

August 21, 2014

Every summer President's Choice, Stokes Seeds and The Veggie Guy get together to host a Tomato Tasting Luncheon.

They invite many of the local garden writers and garden related publishers to the event to get an advanced look at the new vegetables that are on trial for future introduction and retail.

As a media event it works really well. The garden writers get insider information which is valuable content which they can use in their stories. The companies get advanced publicity, and an objective evaluation of their new products.

Plus, it's fun.

One of the most exciting new plants under trial is this exceptionally dark purple ornamental pepper. There was no name listed for it so you will just have to wait for it to appear on the store shelves next spring.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
