The new dates chosen for 2011 are
Saturday, March 26, through Friday, April 1. Individual locations may choose to
extend those dates on either side to accommodate additional visitors but those
seven days make up the core of the event. Contact trial hosts or check web
sites to find specific dates for each trial stop.

The California Spring Trials is a
horticulture industry event held annually for more than 40 years. Hosted by the
participating breeding companies, the California Spring Trials is a venue for
unveiling new and innovative plants and programs, peer-to-peer networking,
unique educational opportunities, inspirational displays and much more.

Attendees include broker reps,
growers, retailers, landscapers and media from all over the world. 

“Because spring is spring, and
busy for everyone, it can be a challenge to set the dates. We take into
consideration other industry events, the selling season across the levels, the
number of hosts and the sheer size of California, and, of course, the best time
to grow quality plant material that truly represents its potential. Visitors
can be assured our mission is to choose dates that can work for all,”
says John Gaydos, director of Product Development and Promotion with
Proven Winners North America.

Due to the changing needs of
attendees and trial hosts, the dates for Spring Trials from 2012 onwards will
be agreed upon annually during the OFA Short Course, and then announced shortly
thereafter.

The National Garden Bureau, a
non-profit organization promoting horticulture, is acting as communication
coordinator on behalf of the California Spring Trials.
