BaleGrow at Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2016
Our first big show of what we hope will be many to come, was a huge success. Our new concept to my surprise, was something that many people have not seen before, even among the most experienced of gardeners. The delight on their faces when seeing a new garden concept was at times overwhelming. Straw Bale Gardening is a centuries old idea, that's BaleGrow can deliver to you without the knowledge base needed to get your garden going, not only quickly, but also with a crop yield to make any gardener happy. The feed back from the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show visitors ranged from amazement that such a thing can to done, to now having a data base with over 300 people requesting more information. The response was everything we had hoped for.
With distributor interest now in QLD, NSW and SA we will be working hard in the next year to expand our brand to reach as gardeners as possible, at every level. The show has given us the ability to showcase this new concept to a broad range for people from all over the country and also generating some interest from our neighbors in New Zealand.
For BaleGrow, the show also gave us the opportunity to expand our contact list within the industry. The horticultural community welcomed BaleGrow with open arms, with contacts that will be valuable for future growth and exposure. Forging ahead with excitement is not only my goal, but now that extends to other gardeners, magazine identities ( watch this space), blog writers and healthy food enthusiasts. All being as excited about our new product as we were two and a half years ago when this story started.
The BaleGrow wrap is the show was a complete success and are looking to the future. See you next year!!
