The International Conference on Plant Trialing has only been held twice before - four years ago in Wisley Gardens, UK, two years ago at Longwood Gardens, PA and again this year in conjunction with the Far West Show in Portland, OR.
There is no other conference like it; it is the only meeting where people involved with the trialing of new plants can come together and discuss, share and learn with others. The audience will be people specifically involved with plant trials around the world as well as others who simply want to learn what is involved in trialing of plant material.
I will be hosting the conference, along with Diane Blazek (All America Selections - National Garden Bureau). Outstanding speakers and a fabulous tour are part of the program. Hope to see you there. For more information, click here.
I am speaking on Monday, an event open to the public. Come see me.
