Attendees of Cultivate, AmericanHort’s annual horticulture industry trade show, go on tours each year to greenhouse, retail, landscaping and nursery operations near and far. This year, the Cultivate garden retail tour took attendees to the three locations of Bremec Garden Centers, based in Cleveland, Ohio. The tour offered an opportunity to see how one company approaches three different regions and customer bases. The oldest and largest Bremec location in Chesterland, Ohio, specializes heavily in pottery, containers, fountains and statuary. Here are a few of the sights this and other stops on the Cultivate’18 garden retail tour had to offer.

Located near Bremec Chesterland’s parking lot, this fountain and pottery yard welcomes guests with a sample of the varied water features they can expect to find further inside.
