AHDB Horticulture and BPOA are organising a week-long study tour to Oregon and Washington States (USA) and British Columbia (Canada) next February/March.
The focus will be on visiting well respected nurseries producing bedding plants, pot plants, herbaceous plants and a range of other seasonal plants.
The study tour will be an intensive trip taking in a selection of different sized commercial production units (using different types of technology, energy sources, methods of crop protection etc), garden centres and retail outlets and provisionally a research centre. So far we have managed to contact and obtain agreement to visit Terra Nova Nurseries, Smith Gardens, Northwest Horticulture, Rainbow Greenhouses Inc and Darvonda Nurseries.
To find out more about the planned study tour, please open this flyer for more details.
