Mark your calendars! The 2008 Floriculture Field Days at the University of Florida is slated for May 14 to 15.

The annual event will take place at the Hilton University of Florida Conference Center & Fifield Hall at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Hosted by the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association’s floriculture division and the University of Florida, the two-day event will focus on new crops and results from the research of the field trials provided by the University, among other areas.

Field Days offer three specialized tracks, Retail, Grower and Landscape, to address the needs of the whole industry. Attendees will get the opportunity to tour the University of Florida Trial Gardens and attend sessions on a variety of topics including green sustainable products, tropical perennials and low impact landscapes.

Linda Brown, with Scientific Certification Systems, will give attendees an overview of the “VeriFlora Certified Sustainably Grown” label and address why and how growers are using the label to set themselves apart from the competition and gain a reputation as socially responsible. From sessions on how to create extraordinary displays, to progressive business management practices and the latest trends in grasses, Field Days is truly a comprehensive sweep of all things floriculture.
