Welby's Top Container Varieties Of 2010

Welby Gardens, a Top 100 Grower based in Denver, Colo., invited the industry to its annual trial garden this summer. Attendees were offered the chance to evaluate their favorite containers, which the business then compiled into a list of 2010 favorites.

“At our trial we keep track of votes by breeder-sponsor companies, general industry folks and retailers,” says Al Gerace, CEO at Welby Gardens. “We had approximately 300 people view the trials that day and each received 10 poker chips to pick their favorites.”
