Millstadt Young Plants and N.G. Heimos Greenhouse is inviting attendees to their open house on November 19 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Millstadt Greenhouse in Millstadt, Illinois.
The open house will showcase a comparison trial of over 180 poinsettia varieties from six different breeders: Beekenkamp, Dummen, Ecke, Florensis, Selecta and Syngenta.
Alongside these comparison trials, there will also be a spring annual trial of vegetative petunias and Begonias. Representatives from each breeder will be available for questions on both crops.
Two industry professionals will be present: Dr. Ann Chase and Dr. Carlos Bogran. Dr. Chase will be talking about poinsettia disease prevention and gearing up for spring bedding crops and Dr. Bogran will be talking about insect solutions on poinsettias and spring crops.
