The Cut Flower Quarterly is the only periodical dedicated to informing growers about the production, postharvest care, and marketing of cut flowers. The Winter issue is filled with color photos and descriptions of the year’s upcoming new varieties. It is also home to the highly-anticipated ASCFG National Trials results, including seed and perennial plant trials. Regular content covers integrated pest management, research updates, business management, and reports from growers across the country. Members say that the Quarterly is the only magazine they read from cover to cover, as soon as it is received. Click the image to read a recent issue.
