"COVID-19 has an effect on everybody and health comes first. But, we also try to look ahead and give our customers the chance to check out our innovations in a safe environment. Due to the cancellations of the FlowerTrials we have decided to open our trial gardens during the summer of 2020", MNP/Suntory says in their press release. 

Growers or sellers of bedding plants want the best quality and the highest profit. But do they also want to be trendsetters and stand out from their competition? In today's market this is becoming more and more important and by visiting the Summer Garden both will be possible as they can take the selection of new breeding innovations in their own hands. Select to your own preference and pre-order, 'the champions of tomorrow, today' is the motto.

What to expect?

The trial gardens will be filled with novelties, new from years of breeding and that are still in or just out of their extensive testing period. 12 different brands/genera, 53 new commercial cultivars and 113 new breeding varieties in selection.

“Take matters into your own hands. Select and pre-order during the Suntory Summer Garden 2020. This way you can decide what you want to see on the market and sell in your stores in the upcoming years.” is the message from Erwin Giezen, Head Marketing & Communications.
