Fleuroselect convention held in France

French distributor of flower and vegetable seeds and cuttings Graines Voltz hosted Fleuroselect’s 46th Annual Convention at its logistics centre in Brain sur l’Authion from 21st to 23rd July 2015.

The field and container trials at the event showed highlights from the flower and vegetable ranges. A large selection of the trial was dedicated to the recent Fleuroselect winners. The current new entries and comparisons were studied by the delegation and in particular the Fleuroselect judges.

A Graines Voltz speciality range of Bertrand Flower Seed Mixtures for urban plantings formed a key element of the Convention’s theme which looked at the highly successful French model for urban flowering.

The French green research centre Plante et Cité presented its study on the Benefits of Urban Vegetation and delegates toured Nantes, visiting sites including the Botanical Garden.

The UK based breeder and supplier Pro-Veg Seeds was accepted as a full member of Fleuroselect during its annual general meeting.

Owner John Burrows supplies flower and vegetable seeds to professional growers, trade, plant raisers and packet seed companies. Additionally, the company breeds patio tomatoes and sunflowers.
