A 21st century design for Perennial Guru?  Indeed!  The new Perennial Guru Site is online.  This clunky old version will remain as is for a while.

I'm back from a trip to Toronto and Newfoundland, speaking at a seminar sponsored by JVK and visiting growers and gardens. And a talk on new perennials at the Master Gardeners Association of Wayne County. I always enjoy the chance to share my knowledge with growers and gardeners. Thanks to everyone who attended the talks.

Handouts for the talks are available on the Articles page. A detailed description and culture guide to the new perennials in the 2005 Raker Perennial Program is also available there.

Some site enhancements are in the pipeline (admittedly, a slow pipeline), and new features will be coming online in the near future.

Finally, the Links page has been updated.

Allen has joined the panel of advisors for Greenhouse Management and Production (GMPro). I wonder where Dave Kuack gets to take the advisors for dinner at the Ohio show -- Buca di Beppo is always nice for a big group...

I hope my industry colleagues are gearing up for a good spring. It's off to an interesting start.

And welcome Grower Talks readers looking for more on perennial germination. Feel free to share your own tips if you would like.

I hope visitors find the information on the site useful. Additional information and features are being developed, and a site re-design is in the works.

PerennialGuru.com is now live! I would like to offer a special welcome to all those attending the 2003 Perennial Production Conference. And I would like to offer a very special thanks to those who've helped behind the scenes to make this launch possible.

Currently available in our Articles section are a number of perennial culture guides for wholesale perennial growers, some of my writing on perennials and perennial culture, handouts from previous talks, and some information pertaining specifically to talks and presentations at the 2003 Perennial Production Conference.

Content and new features will be added on a regular basis to enhance your perennial-geek experience, whether you are a commercial grower or a home gardener.

Enjoy your visit!
