The Caja is a versatile consumer-friendly product that can attract new customers to the garden sector, and expand your product and service capacity. Contact us to join TGC’s network of retailers and distributors, and to learn more about how the Caja can fit into your product mix.
For retail outlets (garden centres, hardware/home improvement stores and specialty gift outlets), the Caja leads to ongoing engagement with existing and especially with new and “non-traditional” customers (condo-dwellers, families with limited space…) throughout the growing season and on a multi-year basis. Spring is always a strong season with the start of a new outdoor growing cycle, and retail locations will garner repeat Caja customers, returning for additional boxes and input materials. You can be sure these clients will tell their friends and family abut the Caja because of their easy and tremendous garden successes. Multi-seasonal cropping can be promoted (summer veggies, herbs and greens), fall (garlic and spring bulbs), and winter (poinsettias and indoor greens). Every year, soil and soil amendments like fertilizer, dolomite, and replacement mulch covers are a natural addition, as are potting soil mixes, seeds, transplants, and other accessories like watering equipment and natural pest control products.
Depending on location and scheduling, TGC can offer gardening workshops on topics such as season extension and succession planting as well as point of sale marketing materials and staff training that showcase the value of the Caja planter.
