Garden Centers of America officials revealed that Nashville will host next year’s GCA Summer Tour, slated to explore Music City’s most notable independent garden centers, June 23-26, 2019.
The announcement comes on the heels of what GCA is calling its most successful tour ever this past June in Seattle. The tour drew record attendance numbers as well as rave reviews, including this one, from Jesse Camargo, Store Manager for Nicholson-Hardie Nursery & Garden Center in Dallas: “It was like a Pinterest board come to life! There was so much creativity, and we brought back so many new ideas from Seattle.”As part of its post-tour wrap-up each year, GCA officials survey IGC retailers for their opinions on the host cities they would most like to see in the future. “Nashville comes up over and over again,” says GCA Executive Director Jeff Morey.
