Plant Trials

For IGCs

SynRGTM is developing a better way to trial new plants that partners with local, independent garden centers during the evaluation process.  

Each year plants from around the world enter the Handpicked for You® plant trials at our five regional grower locations.  These plants are evaluated regularly on their performance.  Those that perform well are selected for local trialing at participating garden center locations.

At the end of the process, trial information from both the regional grower locations and from the the local Independent Garden Center locations are considered.  Only the very best plants will be awarded the Handpicked for You® certification, which will then sold only through independent garden centers. These selections will bear the trustmark that will provide reassurance to consumers that these are great garden performers they can be confident in purchasing and planting.
