Beekenkamp Plants showcases 2018 spring varieties

NL: Annual Spring Trials bring together growers and retailers

On March 28 and 29 it was time again for the annual Spring Trials at Beekenkamp Plants in Maasdijk. Attendees were able to admire current and new varieties presented in all their spring splendor.

The emphasis was of course on colorful spring flowers. The event is also a great opportunity for growers to meet their customers, one of the benefits of Spring Trials being open to the public. "You get the various parties together," says product manager Alexander van der Kaaij. "In the past growers used to determine what would be on the market, but that is no longer the case. Nowadays, demands come from many different directions, and a moment like this is perfect for getting input from all parties. "

The trials clearly demonstrate the importance that Beekenkamp Plants places on the development of product series, such as with the Surfinia petunias. Of course this has to do with marketing and that they obviously need a name, but that’s not the main reason. "You can see very clearly: this is where we started, these types are now on the market and we continued with those. The successor in a series can be stronger, fuller or bigger and so on, depending on what the market wants. We have tried as much as possible to show each plant from a warm and a cold greenhouse, so that both high-tech growers and growers without heating will know what to expect."

The people at Beekenkamp Plants were happy with the turnout. The Spring Trials are now officially over, but if you would like to take a look that can likely be arranged.
