Rudbeckia and Echinacea are rated as Top-Sellers in Germany, Germany’s weekly newspaper for the horticulture industry, Taspo, reported. So, how is Bull's Sunbeckia doing? After visiting a German garden center and a greenhouse growing this variety, it can also be stated that this variety is following the positive trend.
Sunbeckia Presentation at Bade’s Gartenwelt
Bade’s Gartenwelt, a family-owned retail outlet in the north of Germany, did a large presentation of the ‘Sunbeckia.’
Even if the first fall products like Mums, Heather, Erica, Calocephalus, and Grasses are shown, a Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia’ is still a dominating item in this garden center.
‘Sunbeckia’ at Gärtnerei Schmuck
Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia’ summer sales are going well also at Gärtnerei Schmuck. They are also located in the north, close to Hartwig Bull’s production in Gönnebek. "No wonder why they are purchasing Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia’ from Bull via wholesalers in the area."
Most products are kept on small ebb & flow benches. This way, plants can be watered in time and also on weekends. Watering by hand is not necessary, which is good for ‘Sunbeckia.’
At Schmuck’s greenhouses, they also do a trial with Hartwig Bull’s ‘Sunbeckia’ Emma in a 6″ pot. "They can offer it to customers for about 30% lower price. The ‘Sunbeckia Emma’ is a perfect variety for a 6″ pot."
In addition to plants in pots and containers, they upgrade plants to gifts in little arrangements.
