Anthura organized tours all day.
With its dark green, almost black leaves and the dark red colored flowers Delicata is a 'delicate' appearance.
The Micra. This compact plant with red, heart-shaped flowers is small but strong. Micra has a lot of flowers and has a special appearance because of the contrast between the size of the flower and the leaves.
The violet blue flowers give this variety a very exclusive appearance. Impasto® Blue is a good grower, has beautiful dark green leaves and produces its flowers easily. The compact leaf position makes the variety suitable for both pot sizes 9 and 12 cm.
Anthura Bologna is an orchid with an intense orange colour that gives beautiful multi-branches and many flowers.
Manta Ambon's long tendrils with large round flowers give the variety a generous appearance. With a vase life of more than 20 weeks, consumers can enjoy it for a long time.
A tour through the greenhouse of Anthura.

The Euphorbia Milii Series. Normally this is a small-flowering series, but now 3 colours of large-flowering Euphorbia's have been added.
John Nielsen with the kalanchoe outdoor series, available in 10 and 21 cm pot. Because these species are single-flowered, no water remains in the petals when it rains. This preserves the plant's beauty longer.
The location of Graff.
Helle Graff with the novelty Hupiter in the Q-Dula series. The Jupiter does not need a cold period to start flowering. This is exceptional for a lavender and makes it extra interesting for growers as it reduces handling and increases production. In addition, this plant has very good transport properties.
These plants are grown by Garteniet PKM from Denmark. The plants were packed 1 week ago and transported on Thursday. At the moment of taking the pciture, they were standing in the scorching hot greenhouse for 5 days, but they still looked fresh.
Helle Graff with the Q-deville series. This series has strong genetics. What is exceptional about these mandevils is that they do not need any support. Partly because of this, there is so much interest in this series that they have had to scale up production to keep up with market demand.
Graff's PatioQ is the concept for their outdoor, big-pot hybiscus. A new series with a number of existing but also new species.
The Hybiscus range is what Graff has become known for.

At the site of Beekenkamp visitors had the possibility to take notes and give feedback about the products.
The Fun Red White from Beekenkamp's Labella Grande series drew a lot of attention. This year for the first time in the market. It is a plant with a beautiful flower, grows uniformly and is especially suitable for a 15cm pot.
The Fun Flame from Beekenkamp's Labella Magiore series thrives best in a 19-21 cm pot. The variety has many branches and needs less manual labour because you only need to top once.
The Petunia Tea series consists of many varieties and colors, but the main focus in breeding is on on performance.
The Vermillion Hot Pink is the little sister of the award winning Vermillion Red. The Hot Pink is a strong plant with as good a garden performance and weather tolerance as her sister.

Sjaak van Schie with his sons, Mike on the left and Roel on the right.
The Hi Moon of HiBreeding has been nominated for the Glazen Tulip award and is currently in the semi finals. It is a novelty of the breeder and stands out because of its dark leaf and its distinctive colour.
Hi Ocean trap HiBreeding is a friendly variety to grow and also firm and therefore good for transport. The plant also stays nice at the bottom when planted close together.
The Hi Ice is the whitest Hydrangea the men from Hibreeding have ever seen.
Of course there was time for a beer at the end of the day.
Roel van Schie talking to clients.
The entrance to Perry van den Haak's garden was stylishly decorated.

It doesn't get any more Italian than this.
There was also the opportunity to cool down and enjoy an ice cream.
There was also a lot to see at this shared location of Kientzler, All Plant, Decock Plants and Plantipp.
The Superlophus by Kientzler will be introduced in 2023 for the 2nd half of the bedding plant season because of its heat and drowth resistance.
The Salvia Rockin series. They can be grown as a series and thrive best in large containers from 2 litres.
Kientzler's Heat Experts concept was developed 2 years ago. In its development Kientzler has selected varieties that do very well in times of heat and drought. These varieties can easily go two weeks without water. So no stress when you go on holiday.
A bee enjoying lunch.
Alexander Kientzler with the Pocket Rose from the Pocket series. This series includes the naturally compact Calibrachoa. They are easy to grow, good for high production and thrive best in a somewhat smaller pot.
They are also loved by bees and other insects.
Overview of the presentation of Kientzler, All Plant, Decock Plants and Plantipp.
Ludo Decock, Managing Director of Decock Plants, with his Lavendula Fantasia Purple Flame. It is a continuous-flowering variety from spring to late summer. In this period it constantly makes new buds. Available from week 20 to week 35 in pot sizes 10, 13, 17 and 23.
The Passion from the Osteospermum Gelato series. The series is well known but has now been extended with the Passion. It is a very uniform plant with a wide variety of colours and flowers the whole summer.
Because Decock Plants delivers young plants in paperpots, the grower has at least 20% more yield than with unrooted cuttings.
The sweet potato plants of Decock Plants are also doing well and could count on lots of attention during these Flowertrails.

Busy discussion at the Brandkamp stand.
The Leopardo by Schoneveld Breeding is the first large-flowering heat-resistant Cyclamen. The series now consists of 7 colours.
Schoneveld's Djix series has been around for two years now. It is a variety that is easy to grow and has a very good shelf life and is very heath resistant.

After 30 years, MNP Flowers is still the market leader in the Surfinia. This is Lagoon Blue Star. A plant with many flowers and many branches, it is heat-resistant and has a long life. The longevity is due to the fact that the product comes from cuttings. So says Klaas Droog.
Hishtil's stand attracted a lot of attention.
Lavendula Angustifolia Beezee White by Hishtil is a new addition to the Beezee range.
The Lavendula Stoechas series has been extended with 4 varieties; Deep Pink, Deep Purple, Purple and White.
