Retailers, landscape contractors, and growers can discover the trends in
vegetables and plants that will make their 2010 spring sales blossom at this
week’s Garden & Floral Expo at the Toronto Congress Centre. 

Two 30-minute sessions, scheduled at noon on Oct. 20th and 21,
will be presented by Rodger Tschanz, Trial Garden manager with the Department
of Plant Agriculture at the University of Guelph.

Advertisment

Tschanz has been involved for years with the university’s trial gardens.
This year’s trial season included garden and container evaluations, along with
landscape plant trials. 

Besides presentations taking place at the Garden & Floral Stage,
attendees to the show can visit the New Products Showcase to view an innovative
selection of plant varieties from the joint ornamental trial gardens sites at
the University of Guelph and at the Milton office of Landscape Ontario.

“Since 2001, when I started evaluating new plants at the University of
Guelph’s Ornamental Trial Garden, selections have dramatically improved in
growth habit, colour and heat and disease tolerance. Improvements will continue
to be made as breeders respond to environmental challenges and gardening
fashions,” said Tschanz.

Admission to the Garden & Floral stage presentations is free,
included with admission to the trade show.

The show hours are Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and
on Wednesday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
