This year’s Floriculture Field Day drew more than 140 attendees.

Morning presentations on campus focused on marketing, then the program shifted to the Bluegrass Lane Turf and Landscape Research Center where participants toured annual and perennial flower trials and flagged their favorites. They also participated in ‘walkabouts’ focusing on disease and pest management, deer resistant plants, and more.

The day culminated with presentation of awards for the 8th Kathy Pufahl Container Design contest and ice cream social.
