Germany: Comparing callunas at Gardengirls Variety Show 2019

On September 21, 2019, one of the market leaders on the Calluna market, Heidezuechtung Kramer held a variety trial. In Geldern-Walbeck - one of the main Calluna growing areas - sales managers of wholesale companies and Gardengirls growers were invited to the site of licensee Thomas Hönning. They were welcomed by Nurseryman and Heidezuechtung Kramer's manager Detlef Twiest and Sales- and Marketing Director Rudolf Sterkel.

Besides growers and wholesalers, crop consultants of the Horticultural Research Center in Straelen evaluated the varieties as well.
