The Fling has a history of great relationships with sponsors within the horticultural industry as well as local and regional sponsors for each Fling. 


Flings attract between 70 and 100 online gardening influencers from across North America, as well as the U.K. and beyond. They gather in a new host city each year for inspirational garden touring and networking. 

As influential garden communicators, Flingers can create a buzz – in posts to Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other social media about the gardens they tour, people they meet, and the products that excite them.

We love our sponsors! Your support helps defray the Fling costs, such as garden admissions, meals, facility rentals and transportation. We share our love through links to sponsor names, logos and websites on this site, News features here and on Facebook, a print directory given to all attendees, and grateful acknowledgement throughout the Fling. 


Depending on your sponsorship level, we offer additional benefits to thank you for your generosity. 


Contact the current lead planner, Karl Gercens, for up-to-date specifics. We showcase each Fling's sponsors for the term of the current Fling at the sponsorship levels below. Please ask us for details.
