German young plants grower has insolvency proceedings opened

Young plants grower Grünewald GmbH from Selm, Germany, part of the Grünewald group, is heading for insolvency.

Horticulture Week's German sister magazine Taspo reports that preliminary insolvency proceedings against the young plants producer Jungpflanzen Grünewald GmbH were opened by the District Court at Dortmund on April 27. The other parts of the Grunewald Group are not affected. Despite the proceedings, the business in Selm continues to run and customers are being further supplied.

A creditors' list has been issued.

The company is well-known for its GGG varieties and is participating in the FlowerTrials at Gravenzande in the Netherlands.

The product portfolio includes Calocephalus Silvercalos, Sunny Susy Thunbergia, Checkies Mixes, Sweet Pleasure Petunia, Chameletunia Petunia, Summermelody Fuchsias, Sweetbells Calibrachoa, Honeybees Argyranthemum, Sanvitos Sanvitalia and Sunnybees Dianthus.

The CPVO website database shows that nearly all the Gruenewald Plant Variety Rights are now owned by Volmary, with the remainder terminated and the same is true of their trademarks on the EU database.
