Want to keep the 18.3 million new gardeners the industry got in 2020? You need to learn how to speak their language.

Understanding these communication patterns holds major implications for garden writers, industry, and influencers in relating to the gardening public – and gaining the trust of the new gardener.

This session shares report highlights, industry implications, and connections with upcoming trends."
