Production of Mandevilla young plants in good shape for the peak season

With the shipped volumes increasing week after week, the production teams of young plants is prepared for the upcoming peak season.

"Our Mandevilla young plants are produced at two locations. From our farm in Ethiopia, we ship high-quality quick steps (QST, 20mm plug), and from our young plant production facilities in De Lier, NL, we ship the so-called Xcarrier (XAA, 25mm plug)."

Both products are available throughout the peak delivery season, which is about to take off.

Mesfin Birru, Production Manager at our farm in Ethiopia, says: "We are having a pretty good pre-season with the solid quality delivered to our customers. The feedback we receive from our customers is positive, and that shows that the continuous improvements we are working on, are paying off. Together with the Ethiopia Cuttings team, we can't wait to start the peak season and make more customers happy with our product!"

Arie Vreugdenhil, Product Specialist Young Plant Production, says: "Last season was the first full season that we produced the Xcarrier plugs in De Lier. This gave us a lot more insights into growing methods and possible improvements to further increase quality and uniformity in our Mandevilla young plants. This learnings and insights give me the confidence for a steady and high-quality delivery season."
