Visit to Oregon Perennials Farm

Posted on: November 13th, 2012 by Ron

On Sunday, we visited Oregon Perennials peony farm.  We get most of our roots from them and it was very interesting to see how they dig the roots, process them, store them over the winter, and then ship them to us in the spring.   We even got to see our babies in their chiller as they wait a Spring delivery.  Only 7 months to go!

ASCFG Conference

Posted on: November 13th, 2012 by Ron

This week we went to Tacoma to attend the 2012 Winter Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers conference.  Learned a lot at this one and got commitments from several folks to attend and present at our APGA Winter Conference in Fairbanks over Valentines Day.  Tomorrow we will be taking tours of several farms in the Seattle area.
