5 Things You Need To Know About Young Plant Consumers […

Younger garden consumers think it’s important for children to learn how to grow plants, even though they themselves see gardening as a time-consuming and expensive hobby, our latest research shows. This insight was just one of many unearthed by Today’s Garden Center’s 10% Project as it seeks ways to increase consumer interest in plants and local garden centers. We conducted three focus groups made up of consumers under 50 years old during the late winter this year. These focus groups took place over three days. The first focus group was made up of 18-29 year olds, the second of 30-49 year olds and the third of parents with children between 2 and 12. Our next steps are to develop marketing campaigns based on issues our research revealed, then work with garden centers to use the marketing during the spring of 2016 and measure the results. You may recall Today’s Garden […]

This report serves as a first installment in the findings from the online focus groups as the first portion of our project with Flowers Canada entitled, “Keeping the Interest in Gardening Alive!” This is the first step in the project. Subsequent steps are to (b) identify marketing campaigns, (c) develop campaigns with Ontario garden retailers for spring 2016, (d) measure impacts of those campaigns in summer 2016, and (e) craft a marketing handbook with the information collected from the project by the end of summer 2016. Data Collection In order to ascertain the thoughts, attitudes, and perceptions of three age groups of Ontario residents, we worked with GutCheck (http://www.gutcheckit.com/) to conduct three separate focus groups. The groups were Gen Y (ages 18-29), Gen X (ages 30-49) and parents of children ages 2-12. The first one held was with parents (both fathers and mothers) of children ages 2-12 which took 5 […]
