Karanporn Chutarattanakul, Kanok Seed:
"High demand for European flowers in Thailand"
Kanok Seed is a large grower of several pot plants. The company is situated on a 20 acres site, including 5 temperature control storage rooms and cooling greenhouses. Annually, they produce over 7 million pot plants and bedding plants. These plants are used for their own landscape projects and the surplus will be distributed to garden centres in Thailand.
All greenhouses are different and equipped with different techniques. "We have some glass and some plastic greenhouses. Also some greenhouses are equipped with a temperature control system. We have to adjust the greenhouse to the needs of the plant", Chutarattanakul explains.
"We are cultivating with the best materials", says Singtothong. "Therefore, the seeds, bulbs, cuttings and growing material are imported from professional companies from all over the world, but mainly from Europe", she says.
Kanok Seed imports unrooted-cuttings from the German Breeder Brandkamp and plants them in their greenhouse. "We immediately plant the cuttings and grow them to finished plants."
The Multiflora Chrysanthemums are the finished plants grown from the unrooted cuttings from Brandkamp.
The finished Hydrangea plants are grown from pre-finished pots. "We import these pre-finished pots from Germany."
The tulip bulbs are supplied by the Dutch bulb breeder; Holland Bulb Market. The tulips are grown in a environmentally controlled greenhouse.
The lily bulbs are imported from the Dutch bulb producer Zabo Plant.
Not only are the greenhouses adjusted to the needs of the plants, but also the growing media. "We have a Dutch supplier of substrates, Egmond Potground, who produces a suitable blend for every type of crop in our greenhouse", says Karanporn.
