India: Ramesh Flowers to export potted plantsAn Indian nursery and dried flowers exporter will finally break into a niche market dominated so far by China and Europe – export of live potted plants.
Ramesh Flowers, based in the southern port city of Tuticorin, will soon start the supply of live potted plants to a multi-national retailer which is also starting operations in India.
Mahendra Raj Singhwi, Chairman and Managing Director, Ramesh Flowers Pvt Ltd, said it has teamed up with a nursery in Hassan, Karnataka, where the potted plants will be produced and then nurtured at its own facility for 45 days before being shipped out in reefer containers. The company will initially supply areca palms, popular indoor ornamental plants, for the retailer’s domestic and overseas markets. But enquiries are on for 26 more varieties including orchids and lucky bamboo, which are also popular in local markets and are now being imported from China.
The only other supplier in the region for developed international markets is now in Colombo, according to Singhwi.
