LOUDON, NH – Pleasant View Gardens and D.S. Cole Growers have announced their 21st annual Open House event on Thursday, Aug. 3.

“We’re thrilled to host industry professionals again this year for a fun, information-packed day in Loudon. They’ll be among the first in the country to see nearly 80 new introductions from Proven Winners, and get a first-hand look at all the great annuals and combos we have,” shares Andy Huntington, National Sales Manager of Pleasant View. “We’ll also have hundreds of perennials, shrubs, and vegetables on display, including our exciting new Savor Edibles & Fragrants line."

Attendees will also learn the importance of strong genetics, get answers to technical questions from industry experts, and gain valuable knowledge as they network with other horticultural pros. Toss in a catered lunch and refreshments, and you have the makings of the perfect industry event.

“We’re excited to showcase what’s coming in the 2018 season,” raves Doug Cole, owner of D.S. Cole Growers. “And if you weren’t able to make it to the California Spring Trials this year, our Open House is the ideal way for you to see the worlds’ best plant breeding displayed at our more convenient locations.”

The 21th annual Open House runs from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 3, allowing attendees to tour D.S. Cole and Pleasant View Gardens – both of which are in Loudon, New Hampshire and just a short drive from each other.

Loudon, New Hampshire is approximately 35 minutes from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, NH and 1 hour 20 minutes from the Boston Logan International Airport in Boston, Mass. Located in the south-central area of New Hampshire, Loudon and its surrounding areas provide many recreational opportunities in early August.

“While in town, visitors should consider taking in the local sights,” suggested Chris Schlegel, Head Grower at D.S. Cole. “We’re near gorgeous mountains and lakes, and the coast is less than an hour away. The Open House makes it a perfect time for our guests to explore the other wonderful attractions New Hampshire has to offer”.
