June 30, 2016, Downers Grove, IL – Want suggestions of what plants to add or expand production of within your product line for 2017?
A step into the future! The Les Exceptionnelles® program is officially entering a new development phase thanks to an agreement between the Fédération interdisciplinaire de l’horticulture ornementale du Québec (FIHOQ) and the Jardin Daniel A. Séguin.
The California Spring Trials program was started by Glenn Goldsmith in 1967. The goal was to inform growers about the Goldsmith Seeds breeding programs and the company’s commitment to horticulture. It wasn’t long before other breeders joined in, with every major company eventually represented.
April 28, 2016, Downers Grove, IL — National Garden Bureau (NGB), the non-profit organization promoting gardening on behalf of the horticulture industry and its members, reports on a very successful informative and educational trip to the California Spring Trials involving five popular garden bloggers, writers and authors.
When you say “cut flowers,” most folks don’t picture grass plumes. But man does not live by red roses alone, and florists love happy surprises.
It’s hard to find another segment of the horticultural industry that has diversified as much as cut flower growers have. The varieties of cuts now available are truly astounding and each season brings with it more new offerings ranging from forsythia, spring tree blossoms of peaches, nectarines, ornamental flowering cherries and quince, to new summer colours of dahlias, asters and celosias.
April 8, 2016, Gilroy, CA — Danziger 'Dan' Flower Farm will feature expanded breeding efforts as well as its growing global network of cutting supply facilities at this year’s California Spring Trials.

December 2015 — The ornamental container trial held at Vineland Research and Innovation Centre has been jointly run by OMAFRA and Department of Plant Agriculture (UofG) since the spring of 2007. Breeders and plant suppliers have the opportunity to enter new plant hopefuls into this trial for evaluation under Ontario growing conditions. Evaluation takes place during greenhouse production and outside in containers or ground beds for the balance of the summer’s growing season.
December 2015 — The first ever Ontario Container Trial and Workshop attracted over 30 growers and consultants to Vineland to see new ornamental varieties and hear presentations from floriculture research experts.
Nov. 5, 2015, Downers Grove, IL — Anyone watching the movements of All-America Selections lately will notice an ever-increasing number of exciting and wonderful plants that are being named AAS Winners.
The weather early on this year was great for the Sawaya Garden Trials (just east of Simcoe, Ont.), and this was reflected in the quality of most varieties. We had cool nights (but not too cold!) and warm days (but not too warm!) providing excellent weather conditions for the plants to establish.
October 2, 2015, Downers Grove, IL – If you’re looking for some marketing assistance in 2016, the National Garden Bureau has a lot to offer.
