Garden Media Group spotlights innovative clients at the year’s inaugural trade event

As the calendar flips to a new year, the horticulture world eagerly anticipates the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) at the Baltimore Convention Center on Jan 10-12, 2024. MANTS is the essential gathering spot for growers, buyers, media, and industry professionals to unveil and discover cutting-edge trends and products in the green industry.

Garden Media Group, a leader in the green industry communications, is excited to unveil four must-see booths at MANTS this year.

Put the Power in Planting

Introducing Jenny’s Edition 5”x32” Auger– the perfect landscape tool for planting bedding plants to gallon pots. Jenny from Creekside Nursery's edition features a longer shaft with 6" of flighting for the same strength and durability as our original quart pot landscaping auger, with less bending. The heavy-duty tip makes it manageable to drill down in hard clay and rocky soil. This high-performance auger offers unmatched strength and durability so that you can plant from 5-inch up to gallon potted plants swiftly and effectively. This auger will fit seamlessly with ½-inch drills.
