Interested in a free round trip for two to Holland? It could be yours, simply by photographing your retail display of perennials. Any North American perennial retailer is eligible to enter the Perennials Marketing Award contest.

The contest is sponsored by Plant Publicity Holland and the Perennial Plant Association. Its purpose is to encourage retailers to create an outstanding perennial merchandising display in a prominent area of their retail garden centre. Points will be awarded for creativity, effective use of colour and imaginative use of POP material. There is no fee to enter.

The trip will be take place in mid-2009, and includes three night’s accommodations as well as visits to several Dutch garden centres and nursery locations. Last year’s winner was LO member, Canadale Nurseries of St. Thomas.

Second prize is a three-day registration for two at the 2009 Perennial Plant Association Symposium in St. Louis, Mo., while the third prize is a set of four hardcover perennial design books by Piet Oudolf.
