We love this time of year! One of our largest bedding plant, vegetable plant, and perennial suppliers, Hardy Boy Plants, held their annual Field Trials this week. A few of us were able to attend to see what they’ve been working on all season… in addition to keeping us and their other customers fully stocked, of course.
Field Trials are an industry-wide event where plants are grown throughout a season and then judged by the producers, growers, customers, and public, depending on the venue. At Welby Gardens, independent garden centers’ owners, managers, and employees come together to see what plants are new and what’s been changed or improved. The plants are judged based on growth habit (are they leggy, compact, uneven, or stunted?), how they grew in a specific climate, and if they are desirable in gardens and landscapes. Some people vote for their favorite because it’s pretty and that’s ok, too!
So when we say a few of us attended… we really mean a few. We had a small crowd attend this year for a variety of reasons. Small as in… granddaughters and Mimi (Susan Spencer). Everyone had a great time, voted well, and learned a lot. Mimi, I mean, Susan, is excited for the next season’s new additions to the bedding plant supply and hopes that some of this year’s new plants will be more readily available and rotated into Hardy Boy’s already extensive collection.
