This weekend, I’m at the California Spring Trials as a guest of Proven Winners. In a nutshell, the spring trials is the place plant companies go to debut new plants. It’s an industry event (not open to the public), so I felt it was my duty to share with you some of the exciting new varieties coming down the line from Proven Winners. (I love my job!) Here are my 5 favorites:
With new varieties, it’s sometimes hard to find where to buy them. Proven Winners tells me that the consumers hold the power. If you see something you like either here, in the magazine or somewhere else, let the head of your garden center know. New varieties come out every year, often offering gardeners great benefits (disease-resistant, drought-tolerant, new colors, easier to grow). So get out there and let your voice be heard. Hopefully you’ll see these and many more great varieties at your favorite garden center in the future! I’ll post more about the California Spring Trials later in the week!
