The first day of Spring is just a couple of days away.
Are you ready?
California Spring Trials is just a couple of weeks away.
Are you ready?
While the weather experts aren't predicting very spring-like conditions this week for much of the country, the calendar still says Spring starts on Wednesday. For many consumers, March 20 has a psychological effect that causes Spring Fever and multiple trips to the garden center. Hopefully, that is the case in the coming days and weeks.
And California Spring Trials begins on April 6.
Before you know it, breeders from around the world will be showcasing their latest genetics and product offerings that we can expect to see on the market in 2014.
Jasmina Dolce has been providing some sneak peeks of this year's new introductions in GPN's Culture Connection e-newsletter. You can check out some of these sneak peeks from Jasmina by clicking here.  If you aren't receiving the Culture Connection e-newsletter, click here  to subscribe.
