President’s Message (December)

Hard to believe this is my final message for the year!  Where did that go?  What an amazing year it’s been with the popularity of indoor plants seemingly at an all-time high. Great news for our industry but perhaps this is part of the reason for the plant shortage we have all been dealing with over recent months?  Hopefully, this improves in the New Year as the warmer weather encourages faster growth and we continue the conversation with growers to ensure the supply of all the most popular varieties we rely on to perform well indoors.

I’d like to congratulate 202020 Vision for their latest initiative – Plant Life Balance.  This free App is available now to download from the App Store, just search for Plant Life Balance.  I’ve found this a valuable tool for engaging with clients and reaffirming that indoor plants are good for our health and wellbeing.

On behalf of Interior Plantscape Association’s Executive Committee, I’d like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year full of fresh opportunities.

Make sure to take some time to relax and recharge the batteries ready for a HUGE 2018!

Until next year

Nerida Hills

IPA President
