Planting Seeds of Excellence
By LMG Calla Victoria
Recently I attended the Gulf States Horticultural
Expo in Mobile, Alabama. It was a three-day marathon packed with information on the newest trends in landscaping, irrigation, horticulture, landscape lighting, garden design, stats on newly released plant hybrids; so that nurseries can start looking for the new items to service the gardening public.
The tradeshow floor was a celebration of the
foremost names in agriculture, and gardening;
companies like Stihl, Encore Azalea, Southern Living Plant Collection, Ball Seed, Tremron Hardscapes, Garretson Stone, Rain Bird, Atlantic Water Gardens, to name a few. Also there were wholsale nurseries from around the country. Exhibits ranged from flats of groundcovers to huge mature tree specimens and the gargantuan heavy machinery that digs
them up and transports them.
