Live, in-person symposiums are back and Plant Trials Day 2021 will be an incredible return to form! Legendary plant hunter, nursery owner, author, and gardener Dan Hinkley will anchor the program. We will also feature two up and coming young guns we know you’ll really enjoy—Paul Westervelt from Saunders Nursery in Virginian and Jared Barnes from Stephen F Austin University in Texas.

More speakers to be announced. Coffee and pastries 8:00am-8:50am. Symposium runs 8:50am-5:00pm with a lunch hour and two breaks. Social Hour with a cash bar from 5:00pm-6:00pm. Registration at:
