Ed and I visit trial gardens of flowers all over the United States. We pick the best varieties. We visit these gardens many times during the season and the plants need to look good throughout the season and year in and out also. As you know there are many tomato varieties and some are better than others. As examples, there are many varieties of white impatiens, white geraniums, and white petunias. We try to grow only the best varieties and these trials let us know which ones to grow. Please be aware the best varieties are usually harder for us to grow in the greenhouse but easier for you to grow.
