Russian school year begins

A million roses for Moscow

About a million roses will be delivered to Moscow by greenhouse complex Podosinky for the beginning of the school year. About 20 varieties of roses are delivered for sale daily, reported the Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow region, Mr. Andrey Razin.

“All regional greenhouse complexes started preparing for the beginning of the school year, when all students traditionally present teachers with bouquets, well in advance. They have grown millions of tulips, hyacinths, lilies and daffodils”, underlined Mr. Razin.

“This year short-stemmed flowers (40 to 60 cm) are in high demand. The customers prefer lighter colours: white, pink, yellow”, shared Mr. Razin.

The greenhouse complex Podosinky is located in the Dmitrovsk area of the Moscow region. Roses are grown there on 9 ha of greenhouses, using Dutch technology. Perfect conditions for flower growing are created with the assistance of contemporary greenhouse equipment, providing a fully automated process of microclimate regulation and optimal plant watering conditions.

“The advantage of local flowers from Moscow is freshness and quick delivery from the greenhouse to the end customer. A rose grown locally is placed in a container with nourishing fluid immediately after it has been cut and so heads directly to the shops”, noted Mr. Razin.

According to the Minister, there are five companies cultivating flowers in the Moscow region. Apart from the greenhouse complex Podosinky, these are the Yegoryevsk greenhouse complex, LLC Mosrosa, Ramensk greenhouses and СJSC Agrarnoe. The overall production capacity amounts to 35 ha.

The number of flowers produced by the greenhouse in Podosinky amounted to 23 million flowers last year. The number of stems produced by all regional enterprises reached 50 thousand million.
