What to expect at the California Spring Trials 2018?

The California Spring Trials (CAST) are just a bit over two months away. At this week-long event, held at various locations throughout California from April 14-19, breeders, growers and suppliers will showcase their newest varieties and products. What to expect of this year's edition? Below, we listed important points one has to take into account when touring the west coast of the USA and the main differences compared to last year.

Before mentioning the changes and this year's schedule, it is important to notice that the closing date may vary from the official dates at some locations (click here to see the entire list of locations). Most locations are open 8 am - 5 pm, but if you are interested in visiting any of the locations, it is recommended (and sometimes required) that you make a reservation. Unlike last year, AmericanHort does not host the registration this year, for a selected number of companies one can register on www.springtrialsregistration.com.

More changes compared to last year's edition:
  • Ball Horticultural Company will not be open on Wednesday 18.
  • Cohen Nurseries, Hishtil Nurseries, Jaldety Nursery, Kamel Plastic Pots and Nir Nurseries (who is newly added to this group) moved to a new location;  Suncrest Nurseries in Watsonville.
  • Floranova and Green Fuse Botanicals will present their novelties separately.

Never been to the CAST? Here is an impression; our photo report of 2017.

There is no fee to participate, but the trials are not open to the general public (only for businesses and their employees associated with the horticulture industry) and transportation and logistics are the responsibility of the attendee.
