California Spring Trials 2018: New Plant Intros from GroLink and Windmill Nursery Stops

GroLink and Windmill Nursery made for a full-day immersion in plants for the Greenhouse Grower team of Editor Laura Drotleff, Managing Editor Janeen Wright, Contributing Editor Allan Armitage, and Allan Armitage scholarship winner Andrew Scheldorf.

Breeders at Suntory Flowers, Terra Nova Nurseries, Prudac, Florist, PlantHaven, Anthura, Kapiteyn, Kientzler, and 2 Plant International were just a few of the companies showing their products at GroLink and Windmill Nursery. Several trends stood out to the team, including more options in foliage plants and snackable veggies, and there were a couple of sneak peeks you’ll want to know about. There were also some great marketing concepts you might be able to replicate at your business to get your plants noticed.

Check out some of the new plant varieties that stood out to the team, and be sure to follow them on Twitter (@Laura_Editor_GG@Janeen_GG) for the latest updates from the spring trials trail. Plus, don’t forget to come back later for more in-depth coverage of the trials online and in the June print issue.
