History

Manitoba Nursery Landscape Association owes its roots to a few forward-thinking individuals who first organized themselves as the Manitoba Nurserymen’s Association (MNA) in 1957. Aware of the ever-changing needs of the industry, the association has expanded its reach to include other segments of the industry to include landscape contractors and designers, retail garden centres and greenhouses, and maintenance companies.

The Association is governed by its Board of Directors which includes three officers; President, Secretary and Treasurer, and four at-large directors, all of whom are elected by Association members.

Fall 2019 MBNLA Newsletter

Summer is officially over and at the time of writing some much needed rain has fallen in many areas. Unfortunately, the timing may not be great as many in the profession count on reasonably dry conditions at this time to get work completed before freeze-up. Nonetheless, it would be difficult to argue that vegetation in our landscapes desperately needed the moisture.

In this issue, we talk about the California Plant Trials, CNLA board meetings, member benefits, Fire Blight, and much more.
