AHDB/BPOA seasonal plants study tour

After the AHDB/BPOA study tour of the Eastern coast of the USA in 2015 (for a nursery-by-nursery video summary of the study tour click here, courtesy of Bryants Nurseries), a second week-long study tour has now been finalised. This time it will be to the North Western coast of the USA (Washington and Oregon states) and Canada, once again in association with The Independent Traveller.

The study tour will feature both bedding and herbaceous plant production and cover a diverse range of businesses supplying both independent garden centres and ‘box stores’ along with retailers of various sizes. The businesses which will be visited as part of the study tour will be of a scale of production and technical sophistication that UK growers will be able to readily relate to. Visits are planned to all the key nurseries in the area including North West Horticulture, Rainbow Greenhouses Inc., Smith Gardens and Terra Nova.
 
The total cost of the study tour is £1,739.00 per person, based on two sharing a room, with a single supplement of £525.00 per person. A deposit of £500.00 per person will be required upon booking, with the full balance payable by 16 November 2016. Any bookings made after this date (subject to space) will require payment of the full cost. There will be a monetary discount per person applied, as the cost of the coach will be covered by AHDB Horticulture, this will be issued as a credit note or deducted from the final invoice.
