Dr. David Creech honored for international contributions to horticulture

May 12, 2022

Dr. David Creech honored for international contributions to horticulture The Stephen F. Austin State University professor emeritus of agriculture and director of SFA Gardens will receive the 2022 Outstanding International Horticulturist Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science. Dr. David Creech, Stephen F. Austin State University professor emeritus of agriculture and director of SFA Gardens, will receive the 2022 Outstanding International Horticulturist Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science , recognizing his decades-long contributions to international horticultural science, education, research and outreach. "Working internationally changes a person,” Creech said. “You suddenly realize there are like-minded souls in every culture — folks who love horticulture, crop production and new ways of doing things. The great joy is developing friendships that last a lifetime.” Creech’s international research and collaboration spans more than four decades across 10 countries. Examples include kiwifruit research and commercialization with cooperators in South Africa, Italy and New Zealand; blueberry production and urban tree research in China; as well as United States Agency for International Development consultancies for fruit and vegetable production in Guatemala and Pakistan. “David’s contributions to the field of horticulture, both in the U.S. and abroad, are extensive,” said Dr. Hans Williams, dean of SFA’s Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture. “His diversity of professional collaborations and research interests have made him a true ambassador for SFA on a global scale.” Established in 1903, the American Society for Horticultural Science is recognized around the world as one of the most respected and influential professional societies for horticultural scientists. Creech will be honored at the society’s 119th annual conference in Chicago. With the ongoing mission of “Creating Beauty That Inspires,” J. Berry Nursery announces its online expansion, delivering customers’ favorite brands of plants via direct online ordering . The online expansion of the J. Berry brands offers customers convenient access to favorites like Hollywood Hibiscus , Black Diamond Crape Myrtle s, Déjà Bloom Azaleas , Summer Spice Hardy Hibiscus , Crown Jewel Begonias , Emerald Empire Crape Myrtles , and Season to Season Gardenias, among others. The direct-to-consumer sales provide another channel for customers to find their favorite J. Berry branded varieties--but from the comfort of home. “In 2020, J. Berry Nursery became serious about online fulfillment of live plants because of changing consumers’ shopping habits,” says Jim Berry, co-owner and founder of J. Berry Nursery. “We were asked by our largest customers to do fulfillment for their online shoppers. Getting started required a bit of backdoor prep and education. We’re still learning as that aspect of our business grows. My philosophy is that markets change, and we must, too. To stay in business, businesses must evolve.” To support the online sales of the brands, J. Berry Nursery hired two fulfillment team members devoted to online orders. Additionally, the company is expanding into Mae Nursery in Lindale with their shipping facility. Currently, consumers can find approximately 50 J. Berry Nursery grown plant sku’s via their own website . They also provide order fulfillment for The Home Depot and Amazon online sales. Between all three platforms, J. Berry Nursery projects over 300 online offerings for 2023. In addition to providing online sales, J. Berry Nursery has partnered with Boss Boxx, a company that develops affiliate programs to support direct-to-consumer sales. Kayla Sellers, J. Berry Nursery Online Sales and Marketing Director says, “We are working with and learning from the Boss Boxx team to get the special plants we are creating and growing in front of an online audience so they can get the attention they deserve.” She went on to say, “The affiliate community being created has become a place where plant lovers, gardening experts and everyone who wants their home or garden to stand out, wants to be a part of. Becoming a J. Berry affiliate not only means we are rewarding our loyal online customers for sharing about their experience with these beautiful plants, but we are expanding the reach and recognition of the J. Berry brand as a whole. "  While many of the J. Berry brands will be available online, customers will continue to find the brands at their favorite retail locations, such as Lowe’s, The Home Depot, and independent garden centers. Customers can use a zip code locator to find where J. Berry plants are carried locally. With a beautiful combination of bamboo, roses and water on their stand at the Floralien in Ghent, Meer Plant from Meer (B) made a flashy entrance into the tree nursery market. Meer Plant BV is a new addition to the Oprins family. The stand was shared with sister companies Plantentuin De Kleine Boerderij Merksplas and tree nursery Vista Verde. The international jury chaired by Laurence Machiels awarded the Creativity Prize to the presentation. The jury praised the "exceptional quality, top-notch creativity, exceptional execution, a feast for the eyes, a technical tour de force. And at the same time very soothing." The exhibit featured Hedge-On, which is a new concept for ready-to-use rose hedges, as well as Naturosa a selection of newly bred, bee-friendly roses and Prunus lusitanica 'Tico'. Designer Tom de Houwer created a zen-invoking garden with the title 'eternal stream.' He used bamboo as a unique background to present the hedge roses. More than 15 km of 7-metre high, split bamboo was bent in a wave motion to draw attention to the tube that held the roses in their original container above the stretched-out water feature. The scale of the 13-metre-long 4x4 (wxh) design, the visual movement of the bamboo, the sound of the falling water and the scent and appearance of the hedge roses created an immersive experience. The Floralies are held once every four years in the Floralies' Hall in Ghent. This ornamental plant exhibition, which had its first edition in 1873, forms the backdrop for 10 days of creations by national and international top florists, growers of ornamental plants and garden architects. The theme for 2022 is "My Paradise, My Worldly Garden." With less and less green space and public areas becoming more and more built up, cities often look like one big, paved surface. For 10 days, the goal of Floralies offered a counter image — complete with a dynamic, green and blooming presentation. The Floralies exhibit ran until May 8. Metrolina Greenhouses will hold its annual Trial Gardens Open House for members of the floriculture industry from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 9.
