Rush Creek's Latest

Rush Creek Designs debuted four new planters at the Southeast Greenhouse Conference, including the Denali, Coronado, Acadia and Meridian. To me, the most striking of the four is the Coronado (pictured at right) because of its rippled look.

Rush Creek's Ken Kooistra expects the company's growth to be "huge" in the next year, and he attributes it partly to the new introductions. The company's first quarter was "great" despite the economy, Kooistra says.

"The economy has made business tough, but coming up with something new keeps you ahead of the pack," Kooistra says.

All four new planters are suitable for retailers and growers looking for a container in which plants can finish. Rush Creek's Starpoint pot covers another way to jazz up products. I like them because they have a coffee filter look, but they're made in more cheerful colors and called Apple, Strawberry, Mango, Banana and Cherry.
