Syngenta unveils pot plant highlights for 2014

The new Pot Plants Catalogue 2014 from Syngenta FloriPro Services has been released, featuring a selection of cyclamen, gerbera, capsicum, solanum, chrysanthemum, aster and more.

One of the highlights of the range is the semi-double Gerbera jamesonii F1 Cartwheel Strawberry Twist, which recently won a FleuroStar Award.  According to the Fleuroselect jury it offers "very attractive, super-sized semi-double flowers with a broad colour range, ensuring a true wow effect. Cartwheel Strawberry Twist is an eye-catching variety that will appeal highly to the consumer."

Also in the new catalogue is Cyclamen persicum F1 Winfall, with three new colours in Light Purple, Salmon Improved and Rose Improved. Winfall is suitable for late production, less sensitive for botrytis, has an open structure and performs well outside.

The Joker range of Capsicum frutescens has been improved by the addition of both black and red.  The upward-facing, conical fruits have a multicoloured appearance as they go through their stages of development.

The company now has an online picture library from which customers may download images.  Go to to register.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.

Lobby groups jumping onto fashionable campaigns, often to promote their own interests, can do much more harm than good. Take, for example, the move against black polythene plant pots and containers.
