Spring Trials — Countdown to California By Jasmina Dolce

It’s time to pack your bags and get ready for the annual pilgrimage to sunny California. Can’t wait? No problem, here’s a sneak peek into what you’ll be seeing on display along the coast next month.

The 2017 California Spring Trials will take place in just a couple weeks: April 1-6. Hopefully, if you plan on attending, your itinerary is already set. If not, here is a quick north-to-south listing of all the trial locations. And if you’re still on the fence about attending, maybe these new variety teasers will help you make the decision to go!

You can schedule many of your appointments on AmericanHort’s registration page: http://springtrials.americanhort.org. You can also use GPN’s California Spring Trials Companion (http://bit.ly/CASTcompanion) to help make your final plans, or as a resource while you’re on the road. So be sure to bookmark the link!
