Something New on the AAS website:
Judge’s Observations
Want to know exactly what our Judges thought of these new varieties as they were trialing them? Click here to see the new “Judge’s Observations” box on each of the newest AAS Winners. (It’s the sixth green box below the photo.) Our judges are professional horticulturists so their observations about these entries-turned-winners are important! So, we are taking six (give or take) of the most helpful and positive comments from the scoresheets and posting them in this box.

BY THE WAY…the “Reviews” tab on each AAS Winner for anyone to add a comment about their experience with that Winner in your own garden. You too can put comments on that Reviews tab. Maybe we can make this the Yelp of AAS Winners!
