For the fourth year, a tour of several stops along the California Spring Trial Route is being organized by floriculture and greenhouse specialists Mark Bridgen and Neil Mattson of Cornell University from April 8 to 10.
The guided excursion is an educational and entertaining way for growers and horticultural professionals to visit several of the key Spring Trials locations with fellow horticulturists, and also allows attendees the convenience of not having to arrange their own stops, hotels and transportation.
Guests will visit the major horticultural companies that distribute plant materials and supplies to get a first-hand look at the products and new varieties that are available to the floriculture industry.
The excursion is designed specifically for members of the greenhouse and floriculture industry, other horticulture professionals and academics. It is an opportunity to meet fellow growers, breeders and other plant company representatives to share ideas, receive updates of what’s happening in the industry and travel with trained professionals.
The excursion entails three full days of tours and includes hotel accommodations, bus transportation, breakfasts, lunches and shuttle service to and from airports.
Space on the tour is limited, and those interested should register by Feb. 28 to reserve a seat on the trip. Click here to read more about the itinerary and to make a reservation online.
