The HDC and British Protected Ornamentals Association is planning a seasonal plant study tour to the North American East Coast for February 2015.
HDC will fund internal transport and organisational costs for the tour which will last around six days.
Organisers said: "We see this as a great opportunity to enable some younger growers to visit these nurseries for the first time and spend quality time with their peers in the industry." Extra grants may be available for younger growers.
Grower Talks editor Chris Beytes is supporting the project.
WD Smith director Mike Smith ande BPOA technical commitee chairman Chris Need are behind the plan.
