When crafting commercial plant display stands,  function is only part of the equation. To truly captivate attention, you need a display that not only offers practical solutions but one that doesn’t overshadow the splendor of the product.

We’ll show you all the elements you need for a display to stand out while showcasing your product in a way that equally captivates and translates into a profit. You’ll also discover 7 keys to a beautiful plant display. 


Maximize Your Retail Store’s Plant Display Stands – Follow These Principles

1. Create Visual Levels with Tiered Hanging Basket Display Stands

Our powder-coated tiered display stands enable you to easily create levels designed to draw the customers’ attention to your product. Durable enough to withstand the elements, each one is carefully crafted to fit any dimension.

2. Use Mobile Floor Displays to Change Out Large Plant Displays Easily

Your larger gallon plants are some of your highest revenue producers, but they can be cumbersome to move. However, our sturdy floor displays are easily movable, allowing you to craft a secure space for your products and change them seasonally as needed.

3. Showcase Variety with Cascading Wall Displays

These are some of our most popular products because they showcase the beauty and variety of your products. Easily movable, these displays are easily assembled and sturdy enough to hold a wide variety of plants of different shapes and sizes.

4. Boost POP Sales with Countertop Displays & Impulse Items

Did you know the average consumer spends thousands every year on “impulse” items? That means if you’re not capturing the benefit of countertop displays, you’re missing out on revenue. These small, yet effective displays are housed neatly in the checkout area, providing great visibility for customers who want to make a quick addition to their purchase.

5. The Best Garden Centers Have Effective Tiered Displays for Plants

Do you want to create a beautiful cascade of floral colors? Our tiered commercial plant display stands can help you make a work of art that is both stunning and generates revenue.

Tiered displays have several advantages, enabling you to place larger plants at the bottom so these heavier items are easy to reach. In addition, incorporating these larger plants into the design ensures that they aren’t overlooked. By drawing your customers’ eyes upward, you encourage them to view all items on the display.

6. Accessibility and Strength Are Vital – Design with This in Mind

When looking for garden center racks, it’s also important to select one that allows easy access so you can care for the plants. Our commercial plant display stands are designed so that water won’t get trapped in them, and we craft them from durable materials that can withstand outside elements.

We can also help you establish a green wall, where strategically placed shelves enable you to place greenery in an easily accessible and eye-catching manner.

We’re the experts in all facets of plant displays, particularly when it comes to creating those that are functional and durable while, at the same time, allowing your plants and flowers to take center stage.

7 Keys to Beautiful Plant Displays

Utilizing plants with your POP display opens the door to a wide variety of versatility and artistry. These POP displays may be used in a home and garden center of a major retailer to showcase the various plants available. However, strategically placed plants can also bring an added dose of sophistication when implemented into a POP display for another product.

Regardless of whether you want your display to perfectly place a few cactus plants for visual impact or you need a streamlined way to showcase 20 pots of petunias, these 7 keys to an effective plant display will ensure that your retail business keeps growing. 

1. Carefully consider the type of vase or vessel that will be used and adjust accordingly.

While the greenery may be the centerpiece, don’t forget that the vase is also a major player in the POP display. First, establish if you’re going to use something like a classic terra cotta or something a bit more unusual and creative.

The vase you use will influence the colors and layout of your display. For example, if you’re showcasing a large number of colorful plants, select a vase that is a complementary color or one that is understated so that it won’t compete with the multicolored blossoms. However, if you’re primarily selling greenery like ferns, then a vase with a nice dash of color will draw your customers’ eyes to the display.


2. Use tiered layering to give a sense of growth and draw the eye upward.

By elevating plants in a stair-step fashion, you accomplish two things. First, you help ensure that the larger plants on the bottom don’t get overlooked because they are incorporated into the design. Second, by using this arrangement, you can make sure that the heavier items are easier to reach, leaving the lighter items for the higher “stairs.”

3. Use a green wall to draw attention

There are several different variations of this, but it essentially means establishing a wall of strategically placed shelves or vases and filling them with greenery. It’s most effective when used against a white wall or some other color that will allow plenty of contrast. It’s a good way to liven up smaller displays that may be stuck in a corner.

4. Proper lighting is the key to increasing sales in every retail environment

If your display is indoors, then it won’t have the advantage of natural sunlight that many lawn and garden centers have. If that is the case, be sure your booth lighting enhances – not overwhelms – the beauty of the plants.

5. Plan for plant maintenance to make watering and care easier

Make sure the display enables you to easily access and care for the plants. Ensure that the water won’t become trapped in the display and make sure, if it’s located outside, that it’s made of durable material that can withstand temperature changes.

6. Don’t overwhelm your product

Most flowers or potted plants don’t need your help to look beautiful, and doing too much may actually “guild the lily,” meaning providing too much decoration. Remember, this is one of those cases where less is more in design.

7. Use natural woods to evoke an inviting feel

Utilize natural hardwoods such as bamboo to complement the experience, making the display look natural and inviting.
