Alexander Kientzler met de Primula hybride Belarina 'Candy Frost'
The Primula hybride Belarina 'Candy Frost' of Kientzler won novelty award in the  Spring Bloomer category. Winter-hardy, long-lasting bloomers, attractive flowers. The 'Candy Frost' adds a particularly high-quality variety to the primrose range. The flowers are two-coloured, full and do not open completely. The long pile in spring promises a really long sales period. The 'Candy Frost' is versatile but can also be used solo in combination planting arrangements. It radiates nostalgia and romance and may be the ideal gift for the next Valentine's Day.""

Andreas Pellens of Pellens Hortensien presents the roots of their hydrangeas with this transperant pot.
The transparent pot that Pellens Hortensien used to show the roots of their hydrangeas. According to Anders, the roots are developing much better when they used wood on top of the container. Besides it also saved water. "2018 was a much hotter summer compared to 2017, but we used the same amount of water", he says.
