From the west side to the West Coast

without comments

Over the weekend, my colleagues from Greenhouse Management and Garden Center magazines left our modest offices here on the near west side of the city for San Francisco and points south. They’re out west covering the California Spring Trials, an annual preview of the latest and greatest varieties that we’ll see on the market next spring.

For sun-starved Clevelanders, it’s a jolt of much needed sunshine and bright colors. To get your own fix, and get a jump on what’s coming down the pike, check out the team’s video coverage here and read their first eport from the road here.

To get more great photos like the one above, follow them on Facebook here and here.

The ultimate road trip

without comments

About half of our team is on the road this week, covering the California Spring Trials. Two teams of editors and videographers are headed south down Pacific Coast Highway in California, reporting on the latest and greatest plant introductions from major breeders and suppliers.

For the next seven days, they’ll have the newest plant varieties for landscapes, garden centers and home gardens, and breaking news from the world of plants.

You’ll find daily coverage at our main site, and can sign up for our daily enewsletter here. You can also get up-to-the-minute dispatches on Twitter by following Greenhouse Management magazine at @greenhousemag, GM Editor Kristy O’Hara at @GMmagEditor, our new consumer-focused app A Garden Life at @agardenlife and the hashtag #springtrials.
