It’s a Wrap

The winter trade show season was a success. If you didn’t connect with us at MANTS or Green & Growin’, here is a peek of what you missed from us and some of our grower partners!

Silver Falls

Silver Falls Nursery showcased liners of Mademoiselle holly and Mr. Bowling Ball arborvitae at MANTS.

Van Essen

Van Essen Nursery featured a seven-gallon Santa’s Delight holly and top grafted Crème de Mint shrub dogwood in their MANTS booth.

Weeping Cherry

Snow Fountains weeping cherry is always a favorite tree to force for shows as you can see in the Willoway Nurseries MGIX booth.

GWA group

An impromptu meeting of GWA members happened in the UpShoot booth at the Green & Growin’ show. Breeders Phil Dark and Frank Case were able to profile their new plants, Prince Charles Gardenia and Virginian Arborvitae.
