At CAST 2018, Sakata Captures Consumer Attention Spans, and Benary Celebrates Its History

More than halfway through the California Spring Trials, the Greenhouse Grower team had a busy, four-stop day, visiting American Takii, Sakata Ornamentals, Speedling Inc., and Benary. We had a fantastic day seeing dozens of our friends and spending time talking about the industry’s past and its bright future. That’s what we love about coming out to California Spring Trials: In addition to the beautiful plants, we get to see our industry colleagues and friends, and get refreshed, reinvigorated, and re-energized to continue working hard to bring you the best possible, compelling coverage that we pride ourselves on at Greenhouse Grower.

As always, we will have more comprehensive coverage in the trials in our upcoming June print issue, and online at We’ll highlight a number of things, from new varieties to trends we’re seeing, and more in-depth industry news and discussions.


Meanwhile, let us know what you think of our coverage this week so far, and what you’re seeing that you really like! We would love to hear your feedback. Comment below, send us an email at [email protected] or [email protected], or send us a Tweet @Laura_GG_Editor or @Janeen_GG.
