Why do you value IPPS?

I value being an IPPS member to meet and learn from the leaders in the horticulture industry.

I value the nursery tours that demonstrate the best ways to grow sustainable and profitable living plants. I value the public horticulture tours and how they represent our industry to the general public.

I value the annual conference to visit with old friends in the industry and brainstorm how to continuously improve my family business and my personal design business.

People share their knowledge and wisdom at IPPS. This group is unique in that way. I’ve been a member for 10 years and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I found a paid internship there that changed my life and have attended the annual conference 9/10 years. This is the best group of people in southeastern horticulture!
