Annual event gets national support with sponsorship by North America’s largest plant brand.
Grand Haven, Michigan, February 2012. Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs has signed on as a major sponsor of Garden Walk Buffalo, the nation’s largest garden tour. The event, held yearly since 1995, sees over 370 residents open their gardens to the public free-of-charge. It takes place in Buffalo, New York the weekend of July 28-29, 2012.
The major sponsorship funds a bus bearing the company’s logo that shuttles visitors between the various neighborhoods where participating gardens are located. Sponsorship allows the busses to operate at no charge to Garden Walk attendees. In addition, the company will give away copies of Gardening Simplified magazine at the Walk’s three headquarters. Other ideas for interacting with gardeners and visitors throughout the event are in the works.

We look forward to working with the organizers, attendees, and participating gardeners, and getting out to see some of the gardens ourselves. Talking with the gardeners who use your product is the best market research you can do.”
Over 55,000 people are expected to visit the gardens during the two-day event.
