When Proven Winners® was created, the main principle was to introduce innovative plants with great garden performance. We work hard every day to make this vision a reality. The person most responsible for delivering on these principles is our Plant Hunter, Kevin Hurd. Kevin and his team search the world for interesting new plants to trial for Proven Winners. It’s a very cool, unusual and stressful job. His endeavors are the linchpin for our continued success. Here’s a bit of an insider look into how Proven Winners continues to introduce great new plants for gardeners – written in Kevin’s own words.
