Besides flowering plants, there will be more on display at the PlusPlants booth during the IPM Essen 2019. This merger, consisting of 9 German potted plant growers, will showcase 4 berry varieties (produced by three of the group's growers) as well as a new winter-hard tea. Besides, the award winning "Star-Fever" of Hethor Flowers and the brand-new concept for vegetables “PflückBar” from Rieke Blumen cannot be missed out either.
The three PlusPlants partners Artmeyer, Engels and Freese will start producing 4 different berry varieties in 2019. The core of this assortment, consisting of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, is "Immediate fun as it can be harvested in the same year". These three German growers supply the bushes in 5 liter pots with fruits and with an uniform design. "All varieties are carefully tested and equipped with fertilizer for the consumer to use on the terrace, balcony and in the garden."
Hethor Flowers presents the novelty "Star Fever". The new variety has won the Taspo Award "Variety of the year" and will be available in larger quantities for the first time. ""Star Fever" brings the star-shaped flower in pure white an extraordinary elegance and look in the time of "early spring". The pure white makes it possible to use outside the bright spring colors and in the modern living room. The primula is exceptionally durable and relatively insensitive to warm locations", explains Rupert Fey, Managing Director PlusPlants GmbH.
