May 2019: Selecta one takes over La Villetta and great Mother's Day results

One of the major happenings in May 2019 was Selecta One taking over La Villetta, an Italian breeding company. Another one is the tornado in Linwood, Kansas, that nearly completely destroyed the greenhouses of Free State Growers on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 

Of course this month, holidays are celebrated, like Mother's Day on May 12. It seems to have been a success this year. In California (USA), sales records were broken this year. This day topped Valentine's Day as No. 1 flower-giving holiday. On both sides of the Atlantic, the sales have been good. Also in the Netherlands, Mother's Day 2019 broke export records.

In Sweden, Mother's Day was celebrated on May 26 this year and also for this holiday, high sales were expected.
