Syngenta Flowers opened a demo garden at the Beijing Horticultural Expo. With this demo garden, Syngenta Flowers wants to demonstrate its assortment for the use of both landscaping and in smaller private gardens.
Planting the Syngenta demo garden 10 days before the opening of the expo
The Beijing Horticultural Expo was opened by Chinese President Xi Jinping on April 28th. More than 16 million people are expected to visit the expo, before it ends in the start of October.
Landscaping at the expo with Penny Yellow and several other crops
“Our trialing garden is in the style of urban city and currently shows violas and spring perennials”, says Gerard Werink, Marketing Manager Business International. “We will change the crops three times. For instance, in summertime we will highlight the Downy Mildew resistant Impatiens Imara, Vinca and Pelargonium.”
Trial field for comparison trials at Expo Beijing
The garden is situated at the entry of the big field where comparison trials of the commercial assortments of many crops are shown. This is where visitors can also find many of the Syngenta varieties for perennials, bi-annuals and annuals, both from seed and cuttings.
