The Commercial Growers of Wisconsin (CGW), formerly the Commercial Flower Growers of Wisconsin (CFGW), is a diverse group of wholesale & retail business owners, employees, and other advocates dedicated to the horticulture and floriculture industry. Established in 1953 out of Milwaukee, the CGW has expanded to include all greenhouses and growers throughout the state that are interested in improving their plant production and marketing practices.
Every season, the CGW hosts a Summer Field Day at the UW-Madison, West Madison Agricultural Research Station. There, attendees have the opportunity to view trials on various annual cultivars, giving them valuable insight to the varieties that perform best.
Although we are currently facing many challenges due to COVID-19, that isn't stopping the CGW from finding creative and effective ways to continue providing value to their members. Check out our latest virtual membership meeting:
