Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition Show

Every year the Florida Nursery, Landscape and Growers Association has a gigantic plant show, the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition show at the Broward County Convention Center.  Since I started writing for I cover the event for them.  However, I have been attending the event for many years.

I know many of the nurserymen from when I was a state of Florida state agriculture inspector for the Division of Plant Industry.  It was my first job out of college.  I had to inspect nurseries who wanted to become certified to ship plants out of state to California, Texas and Arizona.  Those states had strict laws restricting plants grown in soil from Florida due to our destructive nematode problems in our soils.

Back to the plant show.  There are so many vendors the show takes up the entire hall.  It is fun seeing the latest plant introductions.  It is nice to see the growers I used to visit.  I like to learn about the new products all the other vendors offer. Growers from Canada, China, and Europe are also there.  There is so much to see I often go back more than once to see everything.

Here is a link to the Examiner article and slide show I wrote.  Enjoy and thank you for stopping by my blog.  Click on the link below.
