association of specialty cut flower growers (i always want to say american society of cut flower growers!).

link: http://www.ascfg.org/

for anyone interested here is the events page for 2015. there is the Wisconsin session happening in a week.
in 2016 I think they will do a 'national' conference. the regional events are fantastic, mostly because you can talk with other growers in a zone 'similar' to yours (or nearby) and see what other farms are doing.

$ 195.00 to join the ASCFG but if you attend some events that may be worth it in knowledge. No inexpensive membership category for semi retired dahlia cut flower breeders however.

Anyone can attend the events, you don't have to be a member! Whistling
Also sometimes they have smaller regional events (like they did a farmhop in Ontario in August for $40) as well.

Hmmm, I am afraid if I went I would get IDEAS...not something I need more of unless they are how to do things easier! In my dreams it all seems so effortless...!.

Oh Noni, yes you get SO MANY ideas. Seeing how other people do things gives you so much inspiration. Then I drove home planning in my head and I get home and realize, oh it's still just me! Rolling on the floor laughing Doing all this work, and my awesome husband but we both have regular jobs and a family too. So many dreams and ideas. I need to get on the ball and hire some help for next year to make even 1/3 of the ideas come to fruition.

I'd like to toss in a good word for Mikayla Miranda, from Swan Island. Pretty pink ruffles ( I bet the ADS would say lavender) and SI says it is good for cutting. What caught my attention was how well she took the heat this summer.

Notice how green the fields are around her? Most of the rest were still sulking in the heat but Miranda started right up, and kept growing well and blooming her heart out all summer. No scorching on the tips either.

Thumb of 2015-12-10/PNWGal/910a12 In a happier year for everybody.

OH MY! I never even seriously considered that one because the colors were so pale but in mass that like it is gorgeous! I don't think I need it this year, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will see how the pale colors sell this year. My favorite Swan Island pastel is Kiss MeThumb of 2015-12-10/Islander/4eebd1
Thumb of 2015-12-10/Islander/1df303 . It is a miniature and not as sturdy a plant as some... It's one of the shorter ones...a miniature....but a bunch of them together is so pretty! I saw them displayed that way at Swan Islands and had to have it.

Gorgeous Linda!

Noni those pics are great--purple though not pink? Or maybe my monitor is off.

I love soft pastels en masse. Alone they are not as compelling I agree.

I would call Kiss Me a shade between lavender and pink...not a blue lavender at all.
