California Summer Trials

The event is still happening, but there are some companies that have decided to forgo California Trials this year. And some have partnered up to exhibit at the same stop, so there are only about eight total sites.

 Many of the regular California Trials participants still plan on being part of the event, however, all of the sites will be operating by appointment only and will only be open if allowed by local ordinances, so you’ll need to make your reservation with each site individually. Please note that walk-ins are discouraged and any attendee who arrives without an appointment may be asked to wait if the designated group size is at maximum capacity.

Gardeners across the Northwest are hungry for safe garden shopping opportunities. At Hortlandia 2021, plant vendors from all over the Northwest will offer the latest plant introductions as well as the time-tested (and hardiness-tested!) plants. Complementing the plant vendors are specialty garden artists bringing one-of-a-kind pieces made from metal, wood, glass, ceramic, fabric, and stone.  Each work of art is handcrafted by the vendor.  Even though this year’s event will be smaller than our usual spring sale, we are creating a safe, fun space for shoppers to interact with nurseries and artists offering many plant choices and specialty artworks.
