Following recent changes in the Dutch nursery landscape, eight pot and bedding plant breeders have had to look for a different location to display their innovations in week 24 for the annual FlowerTrials event.
In the German area Rheinland Westfalen, Kienzler will exhibit much closer to the other participating breeders. Their new location in Geldern-Walbeck near Straelen makes a visit to this region considerably easier.
Andreas Kientzler said: "Even though our show garden in Gensingen is wonderful, we wanted to exhibit much closer to the Dutch border. Furthermore, we wanted to show our assortment in an authentic atmosphere to offer our visitors maximum inspiration. Schloss Waldeck meets both of these requirements perfectly."The 52 FlowerTrials exhibitors can be found at 30 different locations spread over the three regions.
Meanwhile, at Boskoop the Autumn Fair organised by GROEN-Direkt (24-26 August) is coinciding with the Plantarium fair (24-27 August), with more than 500 growers, 200 trading companies and 50 suppliers.
A shuttle service will be providing transport between the two venues.
Since 2015, GROEN-Direkt and Plantarium have been working together under the name of ‘Ticket2Boskoop’.
Another European fair is in June, Messe Essen's Hortivation. Landgard is promoting Flowers - 1,000 Good Reasons at the show, on June 13-15 Messe Kalkar, near Dusseldorf, Germany.
