From 11 to 14 June Slijkerman will again hold their yearly Kalanchoë Trials. They open the doors of their high-tech greenhouse in Heerhugowaard (The Netherlands) and take customers along the wide variety of Kalanchoë. During a visit, all commercial varieties, as well as the latest developments, can be assessed on their performance in a practical environment and the shelf life can be viewed in our special shelf life test room.
"A special novelty this year is the Tiger series, which is characterized by contrasting flowers with beautiful drawings. The tough appearance of the varieties from this series fits the powerful appearance of the tiger, to which it owes its name."
"Diamond is the hardest material found in nature and has also been loved for centuries for its beauty and purity. This also characterizes the double-flowered and single-flowered varieties from the Diamond series, which are specially selected for bright colors and above-average shelf life. A derivative of this is a line with varieties that have been specially bred for growing as cut flowers, in which the last years have been fully developed."
"Trendy zoete pastelkleuren, dat kenmerkt de Serenity serie. Met maar liefst 15 verschillende kleuren is er altijd voor iedereen wel een geschikte variëteit te vinden. Teelttechnisch is de serie geliefd onder kwekers door de minimale rembehoefte en gelijke eigenschappen waardoor deze gemakkelijk gecombineerd kan worden."
"The Soraya series is a recent addition to the product range. The series consists of five varieties that have large rose-shaped flowers and the broad flower screen provides an impressive shelf presentation."
Enough to see and talk about. "We look forward to your visit, our team is ready for you! Don't forget to make an appointment to be sure that we have time for you (click here to make an appointment)."
