The “What’s New – Cool New Stuff Trial” is about to make its debut in and around the Niagara region of Ontario. This completely free event, being held Aug. 9-10, is sponsored by the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation, Greenhouse Grower and Greenhouse Canada. It’s a collection of field and greenhouse open houses previewing “what’s new” for 2008. About a dozen locations are taking part this year.
COPF board member Laurie Scullin
says that while this year’s inaugural event
will be small scale, the project has enormous
growth potential. It’s quite probable
the event could soon grow to host thousands
of growers from across Canada and
through much of the U.S. “Our goal,”
notes Scullin, “is to connect thousands of
growers with the latest new genetics from
vegetative and seed plant breeders.”
The host sites are located within about
100 kilometres of each other, and are
about an hour’s drive from either the
Toronto or Buffalo airports.
One advantage the Toronto/Niagara
showcase has going for it, compared
with the California Pack Trials, is better
timing. Having the event in mid-
August, when things are a little more
relaxed for growers, is a big plus.
Driving distances will be minimal.
COPF is welcoming the opportunity to
better connect growers and breeders.
Updated information is being posted
on the COPF website (www.copf.org).
COPF is a not-for-profit organization
assisting breeders in bringing new products
Checking out “what’s new” has gotten a
lot easier – and convenient – for growers.
