Darwin Perennials has launched a comprehensive online training opportunity for perennial production.

A breeder of vegetative perennials in North America, the company has pivoted from its annual Darwin Perennials Day event to Darwin Perennials University this summer, providing growers, greenhouse teams and perennial suppliers with information on new products and production proficiency.

According to the release, the free online video education series is tailored to all levels of perennial production: propagation, transplanting, finishing, and selling.

Beginning June 16, Darwin Perennials University will add new perennial training videos each week, guided by the product teams at Darwin Perennials and Kieft Seed. Videos will be available in both English and Spanish.

“In just 20 minutes per week with Darwin Perennials University, your greenhouse team can raise the bar with perennials production,” says Seth Reed, Sales & Marketing Manager for Darwin Perennials. “We’ve distilled down the essence of success with key perennial classes on the topics that make the most difference. We’ve also expanded the training to brand-new products, so you can get a jump-start on the latest introductions for the next selling season.”

Additional tools include links to online perennial scheduling tools and downloadable culture documents. Participants who complete the quizzes will be entered for a chance to win a sample set of new 2022 introductions.

“We encourage teams to sign up individually for weekly training access, but to also watch the educational videos as a group if they can,” says Darwin Perennials and Kieft Seed Product Representative Chris Fifo. “Learning together and sharing insights fosters even more success with perennials production.”

Highlighted crops included Echinacea, Lavender, Phlox, Salvia and more. See website for the full product training calendar.

Registration is now open at www.darwinperennials.com/university.
