The EU Open Spring Trials will take place from 28-30 April 2015. It is the ideal opportunity for breeders to introduce their new varieties to the distribution companies and large plug- and plant producers. Features such as earliness and plant development can be observed in 'packs' or pots.
Cannova Bronze Scarlet F1 from Takii is the earliest flowering seed-raised Canna on the market. Growers will love this variety because it can be grown at only 15 degrees and only 1 plug is needed to fill a 15cm pot. This compact variety can be delivered in 12cm pots and bigger. Bronze Scarlet will easily convince consumers at point of sale thanks to the wonderful contrast between the dark foliage and the red flower. Cannova can be placed in larger pots on the terrace or patio, or planted in the full ground or at the water side.
Why do packet seed catalogues offer the same varieties hobby gardeners can pick up in the vegetable aisle of the supermarket? James Wong, British TV personality and author of 'The Homegrown Revolution' and 'Grow your own drugs' encouraged delegates to stop imitating the supermarket assortment and offer hobby gardeners new varieties that are easy to grow.
