Are You Growing Native Plants?

  • Are you growing native plants?
  • Designing landscapes or that include native plants?
  • Installing or maintaining native landscapes? Restoring natural areas?
  • Getting more inquiries about natives from your customers?
Join the leaders in the Florida native plant industry - the Association of Florida Native Nurseries (http://www.afnn.org), the nation's largest and oldest native nursery association.

But realize -- we're not just nurseries anymore --our  members also include landscape architects, designers, contractors and environmental consultants who specialize in using Florida native plants. We've always been the leading source for native plants, but we now also routinely receive requests for LAs, designers, contractors and consultants who know natives and like to use them. We need you, and we can feed you referrals. And if your firm offers another product or service allied with sustainable landscaping, we'd love to hear about it.

Membership benefits including listing in our very popular publications and website, discounts on advertising and CEU courses, networking with like-minded colleagues, and expanded marketing outreach through our partnership with the Florida Department of Agriculture and other organizations.

JUNE 30 is the deadline to be included in 2010-2011 edition of AFNN's Native Plant and Service Directory, the horticulture/landscape industry's most respected and widely used source for locating native plants, native landscape consultants, designers, installers, and maintenance gurus. If you're   growing, selling or planting natives for commercial, institutional or public agency clients, you need to be part of the Association of Florida Native Nurseries.

The Florida Native Plant Partnership (FNP2) is a collaboration of the Association of Florida Native Nurseries (AFNN), Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS), Florida Wildflower Foundation (FWF), and Wildflower Seed and Plant Growers Association ("Seed Co-Op"). All four organizations are committed to the preservation and promotion of Florida native plants and are pooling resources to create greater visibility for our plants in industry and the general consumer marketplace. FNPP will be exhibiting at the Florida ASLA Conference (Landscape Architects, July 22-24, Gainesville), Florida APA Conference (Planners, Sept 15-17, Tampa), and the FNGLA Landscape Show (Horticulture Industry, Sept 23-25, Orlando). See you there!

Editor's Note: This message from our partners at AFNN is posted here as part of our cooperation with and support for the AFNN as explained in the above definition of the FNP2. The bloggers hope that the information will be useful in some form to many.
