September is the month of the first day of school in Russia and Ukraine, but also for the FlowersExpo in Moscow, Russia. Of course, more happened in this year's September. In this special year overview article, we look back at September 1-15, 2021. We, among others, spoke with Robert Wu of Oboya about the company's turbulent year and how their future looks like, talked with growers and other members in the industry, in Kenya, Colombia and Ecuador, about the bad weather that is affecting the production volumes and we featured a live stream in which it is discussed how the industry is dealing with the rose shortage. Also, the success of a US online flower sourcing company has been highlighted and, of course, a peek at FlowersExpo has been given.
