Plantarium and GROEN-Direkt closed their doors last Friday, August 23. For the second time, both events were held under one roof and attracted trade professionals from all over the world. 'Green Fits All' was the slogan and at this year's edition vibes were again positive; more visitors, the tree nursery is doing well, enough room for innovations not only regarding the varieties but also regarding more environmental solutions and supplies. Our colleagues of BPnieuws were present to make a photo report.
Clockwise: Willianne Sluiter of Incredible Roses and Peter Cox of Pheno Geno Roses presenting their edible roses ‘Taste of Love’. Ayala Zilberman of Danziger next to the Agastache series of Terra Nova. Since January 2019 they supply their cuttings in Europe. Hartwig and Ulrike Bull of Bull Gartenbau next to their own bred Sunbeckia. Ronald Vreugdenhil of Pöppelmann presenting the Pöppelman blue concept, that is now also available in the color Taupe.
This year, at the 39th edition of the Plantarium, also an ecological route was organized, which visitors could walk. The route went past 20 booths that presented interesting products and/or services in the areas of sustainability and health. "The guided tour was very much appreciated by both visitors and the companies", the organization reports.
Visitors plant ideas
Also, the survey entitled 'Visitors plant ideas' was conducted among Plantarium visitors and participants to find out what wishes people have from the market point of view. "After three days of in-depth interviews with visitors and participants, hundreds of ideas and suggestions have been gathered for the further development of 'our' Plantarium! From simple tips to visionary ideas that will help us choose a direction. The board is sincerely grateful for all the suggestions and involvement and will set to work on them."
