Annual evaluation at CSU trial gardens

Fort Collins Nursery’s Greenhouse Manager and Buyer Troy Cobb participated Aug. 1, 2011, in the annual evaluation of the Colorado State University Annual Flower Trial Gardens.

Troy and other nursery professionals come together once a year to rate new varieties of plants for performance in our unique growing conditions. Look for many of these annuals next spring in our greenhouse!

The trial gardens are free and open to the public. Visit from late May to October at the northeast corner of College Avenue and Lake Street, across from CSU campus.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan interviewed Troy Cobb and James Klett, CSU Horticulture Department (who has taught at Fort Collins Nursery’s Winter Workshops).
