Pleasant View Gardens and D.S. Cole Growers will be holding their 21st annual Open House event on Thursday, Aug. 3, opening up their greenhouses and gardens for the day, to horticulture industry professionals.
“We’re thrilled to host industry professionals again this year for a fun, information-packed day in Loudon, NH,” says Andy Huntington, National Sales Manager of Pleasant View. “They’ll be among the first in the country to see nearly 80 new introductions from Proven Winners, and get a first-hand look at all the great annuals and combos we have. We’ll also have hundreds of perennials, shrubs, and vegetables on display, including our new Savor Edibles & Fragrants line.”
Attendees will also learn the importance of strong genetics, get answers to technical questions from industry experts, and gain valuable knowledge as they network with other horticultural pros.
“We’re excited to showcase what’s coming in the 2018 season,” says Doug Cole, Owner of D.S. Cole Growers. “If you weren’t able to make it to the California Spring Trials this year, our Open House is the ideal way for you to see the world’s best plant breeding displayed at our more convenient locations.”
The Open House runs from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m., allowing attendees to tour D.S. Cole and Pleasant View Gardens — both of which are in Loudon, NH, and just a short drive from each other.
“While in town, visitors should consider taking in the local sights,” says Chris Schlegel, Head Grower at D.S. Cole. “We’re near gorgeous mountains and lakes, and the coast is less than an hour away. The Open House makes it a perfect time for our guests to explore the other wonderful attractions New Hampshire has to offer.”
