Deb’s Greenhouse, in Morinville, Canada will be the host site for the first New Blooms event. The goal of this event is to bring new varieties and programs to the independent growers and retailers in Western Canada. Partnering with High Q Greenhouses, the event will have a container trial garden of future releases for visitors to evaluate.
“As a young plant producer in western Canada, it is important for me and my customers to see real trial plants grown under our climate conditions,” says Michiel Verheul, proprietor of High Q Greenhouses. “This event will give all of our grower and retail industry members a chance to see them grown out as finished specimens, so we can confidently offer these new varieties to our consumers.”
In addition to the live plants trial, guests will have a full day schedule of speakers, including Chris Berg from Westhoff & PAC, Judy Born from Florist, Robert Bett from PlantHaven International and Dominik Neisser from Vivero Internacional. Topics will range from new varieties and programs, as well as young plant propagation and finishing to retail.
“We have a very strong network of independent growers and retailers in western Canada that are very supportive of one another in growing our businesses and market,” says Deb Foisey, owner of Deb’s Greenhouse. “This is an event that I hope makes those connections even stronger and continues to support the independent retailers in offering the latest and greatest from plant breeders worldwide.”
