August 2014 Issue

Features
Spring 2014: Better Than its 6.7 Rating | Chris Beytes
Spring 2014 started molasses-slow, finished chilli-pepper hot and left most growers and retailers contentedly out of plants—and in some cases, seeing record sales.

More of the Good Stuff | Chris Beytes and Jennifer Zurko
Part 2 of our Spring Trials coverage includes everything from perennials to packaging



Culture Notes
Sundenia Dipladenias: The Best of Both Worlds | Delilah Onofrey

Growers Talk Business

Instead of being on the track to success, we found ourselves in the bear’s den.
Acres & Acres

How do we give young growers the responsibility and autonomy I’m sure they all crave?
