Annual Flower Research Results

Posted By MNLA eNews, Thursday, November 29, 2018

The goal of the annual flower trial at the U of MN WCROC is to evaluate cultivars under regional conditions in order to provide cultivar recommendations for hardiness Zone 4. In 2018, nearly 400 cultivars were trialed through the U of MN annual flower variety trial. As part of the evaluation criteria, cultivars are rated based on their unique characteristics, exceptional performance, color and vigor under regional conditions. Once the final evaluations are completed, only the top-rated annual flowers are considered for the distinction of being called a Top Ten Performing Annual.

Bailey Nurseries Acquires Carlton Plants

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Bailey Nurseries acquired Carlton Plants on October 31. Integrating one of the industry’s most well-respected bareroot growers into the Bailey organization offers customers an expanded product portfolio with the same quality and service they have come to expect. “Carlton Plants is very fortunate to have so many great employees, customers, and colleagues with whom strong relationships have been developed over the past 128 years. Carlton remains very strong and healthy because of them,” said Carlton General Manager Jon Bartch. “With respect to these relationships, and as a business owner, there is a responsibility to consider the longer-term future of the company. I am excited to share this future with another relationship-focused organization such as Bailey.”

Second generation Bailey Nurseries owner Gordon Bailey Sr. purchased Carlton Plants in 1984 before his grandson [Bartch] purchased the company in 1997. This thread of common family ownership between Bailey and Carlton, as well as the already collaborative relationship between the companies, has laid the foundation for a smooth integration into one organization under the Bailey umbrella. “We have many common core values, making this a natural fit,” adds Bailey President Terri McEnaney. “Our joint commitment to service and quality will be a great benefit to our expanded customer and employee base, and we look forward to bringing our teams together to support the long-term success of Bailey and our customers. This is an incredibly exciting time and we are thrilled to create new opportunities with the combined resources of Carlton and Bailey.”

Customers can expect a smooth transition with all 2019 ordering and shipping processes unchanged. During this time, long-term transition plans will be established for the most efficient integration of people and systems. “The entire Bailey family has great respect and admiration for what has been built at Carlton, and we are grateful that Bailey has the opportunity to continue its legacy,” Terri McEnaney shared. “Jon’s intentional decision for Carlton to continue as a plant nursery speaks volumes to his character, and I am confident that if our grandfather were here today, he would be pleased to see this next evolution for Bailey and Carlton.”
