One aspect of Brian Whipker's job as a Floriculture Extension Specialist is visiting growers. "It is always wonderful to get out of the university ivory tower and see what is occurring in greenhouses. I do not do this as much as I desire or should. On these trips there are always amazing discoveries. Many a North Carolina greenhouse grower have come to learn what excites me, is not reciprocated in equal enthusiasm by them."
The major discoveries are often highlighted in e-GRO Alerts, but many times the minor ones are not. Therefore the focus of a new e-GRO Alert is to provide a photo essay of observations, both good and not so good, observed during last week’s grower visits.
