Miracle Gro:

Growing plants that feed self-expression

The Ask

Present a creative brief to Arts + Letters (Richmond, VA) on Miracle-Gro. 

What We Found: 

  • In 2019, 30 percent of all households bought at least one houseplant

  • People are spending an average of 22 hours a day inside

  • DIY is on the rise but people don’t know what they’re doing, especially with plants

  • The household plant market is growing: 50% growth in the past 3 years within the indoor plant market and the market is at $1.7 billion 

  • More people taking on the responsibility of having "plant babies"

Problem + Opportunity

Mircale-Gro isn't as synonymous with indoor plant care as they are with lawn and gardens.

 

More people are spending time indoors than ever before. This in turn has helped the indoor plant market boom in the past few years. Miracle-Gro can be the leader in the indoor plant market.
