If you are ever in Rochester…

After two long years of searching for a new office and warehouse in Rochester, we decided to buy the building that we are currently in. We closed on it just last month, and all of us here are extremely happy we do not have to move and deal with nasty business interruptions.

We have expanded our flower trial areas with 8 new raised beds, and we are dedicating two of these beds to sustainable and organic production techniques. We are making every effort to make our grounds a showpiece for landscaping considerations.

It is necessary to put up fencing, as the deer will feed on our vegetables and flowers routinely. A great deal of time and effort goes into the testing of new varieties, and we hate to see it all destroyed by those critters that roam the landscape at night. We will be testing some deer repellants as well to ensure they will work.

If there are any of our customers that would like to have a tour of our facility when they are in town, give us a call ahead of time and we would be happy to accommodate you. We are an official All American Selections Trial Site, and this is where we get a first look at any new entries for flowers and vegetables.

We have lots of planting yet to do outside in our garden beds, but when summer rolls around, it will be all worth it.
