The annual California Spring Trials event is all about what’s new. And, as with every year, there will be plenty to see. If going to sunny California in mid-March isn’t enough of an incentive for you to go to CAST, looking at lots of new plants should be.
This year, the trials are a little bit earlier (because Easter happens to be early)—being held March 20 – 24, 2024. The map and listing here should help you plan your trip. Please note that not all of the stops are open the entire time of the event, so pay attention when referring to the dates and times listed with the stops.
And if you can’t make it, the Bobbleheads will be there! Chris Beytes, Bill Calkins, our excellent video producer Osvaldo Cuevas and I will be going to every stop to bring you all of the highlights—via our Acres of Buzz! newsletter (subscribe below), our GrowerTalks YouTube channel and on social media. You can also find more information, including hotel and restaurant suggestions on this site.
