Trials & Travels
Penn State Extension- Manheim, PA- July 17 2017- zone 6B
At Ball FloraPlant we are trialing our varieties all over the country! We want to make sure that you have a regional trial to review our new and existing varieties under conditions similar to your own. The BFP team is traveling all the time, evaluating these same trials. In the event you are unable to attend a trial yourself or would like to know how trials outside of your region perform, we will send out trial reports throughout this Summer. They will include info about the trial and highlights.
Penn State Extension: Sinclair Adam and his team have done an excellent job getting this trail planted and laid out to evaluate summer performance. Since it's start in 1933, this trial program has given an accurate depiction of variety performance for the climate and pest issues in the Northeast. They will hold their annual Flower Trial Field Day next week, July 27th. Attendees can see multiple presentations and all the plants on display.
