Upcoming Container Trial Events

In case any of you have forgotten, the Sawaya Garden Trials are happening TOMORROW in Simcoe!  It should be a great day.

Also keep your calendars clear for the new Ontario Container Trial and Workshop, a free event to be held at the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre on Friday, August 21st (9am to 12pm).

Some of the containers currently growing on the Vineland Campus, all ready for the Container Trial and Workshop on Aug. 21.

Similar to the container trials run by OMAFRA/UofG in previous years, you’ll be able to see how 200 different varieties of ornamental plants stack up against each other — all were grown by Rodger Tschanz (UofG) under the same growing conditions.

This year we’ve also added some bonus material, including:

  • Presentations on  new floriculture research coming out of Cornell University, as well as Vineland’s research on floriculture opportunities in the Asian-Canadian community
  • Details on the best performers of 2015, and which ornamentals were most attractive to thrips
  • a FREE BBQ lunch
  • a tour of Vineland’s new greenhouse facility.

Register for the event by Aug. 17th by calling 1-877-424-1300. Presentations start at 9am.  A public open house to view the containers will begin at 1pm.
