Wouter den Hollander with Kolster. The assortment mostly consists of outdoor flowers and plants, meaning they can be grown without much supplemental light and heathing. In times of crazy energy prizes, that is something growers are looking for.

Marleen van Balkom and Carolien van der Goes with the Violas. Soon a Global Launch, big news, at the Delta Violas. At the booth, the products from seed and from cuttings were presented side by side. The differences were clearly visible. Both were eye-catchers but for a different market.The product from seed was bred to flower quickly. It therefore only needs days of 10.5 hours of light to flower. Good for retail because Petunias are in demand earlier and earlier. But if one wants product that can be enjoyed (even) longer than product from cuttings remains better. It is therefore more suitable especially for garden centers.
