Joe Lara Albert Grimm Laura DrotleffWhether it was industry event and trade show highlights or new developments in technology, these images not only spoke more than a thousand words; they drew thousands of clicks, as well.

1. Costa Farms’ Season Premier Provides Sneak Peek at New Varieties for 2017

Costa Farms presented the 2016 Season Premier at its 2-acre Trial Gardens in Miami, FL, in the third week of January. The event showcases varieties from breeders of all sizes to growers and major retail buyers, providing a look at what genetics are coming to the market and how they’ll perform in retail settings and in the landscape, when consumers bring them home.

2. New Plants, Products, and Trends From TPIE 2016

Tropicals, foliage, and succulents may be the way to new consumers’ hearts, based on the cool ideas, products, and trends presented at the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association’s 2016 Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, in January. The theme this year, Elevating Expectations, was fulfilled, renewing and reinvigorating attendees to carry forth their businesses into 2016 and beyond.

3. Fun Display Ideas From California Spring Trials

In a year that was fairly light on new introductions, plant breeders ramped up their display creativity. Garden retailers found a lot of inspiration for their own stores.

4. A Look Back at Greenhouse Grower’s Evening Of Excellence at Cultivate’16

Greenhouse Grower held its annual Evening of Excellence event on Monday, July 11, during Cultivate’16. The Greenhouse Grower Evening Of Excellence awards reception celebrates greenhouse operations and plant breeders that strive for excellence, and as to be expected, there was much of that to be found during the event.

5. The Latest Developments in Greenhouse Structures

Two of the key words used by several greenhouse structure manufacturers to describe their latest products are flexibility and longevity. Because every grower has a different set of needs when they set out to add a new structure or renovate a current one, it’s important for suppliers to be able to address these concerns.
