Vegetable Varieties and the All-America Selections

Saturday, March 10, 2018
10:00am – 12:00pm

Tolland County Agricultural Center

During winter, gardeners can look leisurely through seed catalogs to plan for spring planting. Hidden between all those pretty pictures and thoughts of warm weather is a host of information to help decide what to grow. Selecting what to grow depends on a variety of items, such as flavor, available space, nutritional value or how well the crop resists disease. This class will help decipher catalog lingo and growing charts. We will also discuss the All-America Selections vegetable variety trials and tips on becoming an expert on variety evaluation.
