2019 has seen significant developments in the Genesis Plant Marketing portfolio with many new product releases planned for 2020 and beyond.
Diverse range of breeders
Commercial Director Nigel Judd said, ‘Working with a wide range of independent breeders and professional nurserymen as well as keen amateurs gives Genesis an edge. In particular, in respect of access to a diverse range of innovation that you won’t see via many of the mainstream breeding companies'.
'Great year for perennials'
Salvia ‘Amethyst Lips' continues to raise the profile of the company with a series of awards during 2019. The latest award for this plant came at Salon du Vegetal in Nantes for the Best New Innovation in Perennials.
This variety also took a Bronze award at Plantarium alongside Primula Alison Holland which won the Silver Medal in the perennial section.
