Vegetative Comparison Trials

The winner of this year’s iTunes gift card drawing is….  Mark Eaton!!  Please contact Laura at to claim your gift card.


Our fifth year of comparison trials has just wrapped up and the results are now out from our comparison trial, which focused on begonia, lantana, scaevola and salvia this year.  The trial contained 400 varieties and represented over 15 different breeding companies.

We chose these genera for the 2017 comparison garden because of their performance in summer conditions, and many of them did very well!
