A sold out show for Cut Flower Growers
Nov. 4, 2016, Grand Rapids, MI – A tour of Spring Meadow Nursery will be among the highlights of next week’s (Nov. 6-9) national conference of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG).
The ASCFG has experienced massive growth in membership over the past few years, as reflected by the conference being completely sold out. This year’s event has another superb lineup of educational sessions, including special guest speaker Dale Deppe, owner of Spring Meadow Nursery.
On the final day, Spring Meadow Nursery will be welcoming over 200 conference attendees to its facilities in nearby Grand Haven. Attendees will tour greenhouses, learn about the latest innovations in plant production and growing tips. Highlights of the tour will include demonstrations of the ISO sticking machine from the Netherlands, the newest piece of high tech equipment to be added at Spring Meadow.
Each year, Spring Meadow Nursery provides tours and educational sessions to a variety of groups including horticulture professionals, educational groups, and gardening clubs.
The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ASCFG) was formed in 1988 to unite and educate field and greenhouse cut flower growers. The ASCFG provides an identity for the specialty cut flower industry. It connects members across the U.S., and in Canada, the Netherlands and Northern Ireland. The ASCFG provides production, marketing, and research information through publications, online communications and national and regional meetings. It also connects floral buyers with the farmers who are producing the highest quality, locally grown flowers.
