June flower hunting journey: the best bits

Every year, 59 plant companies open their greenhouse doors to a thirsty throng of plant buyers, retailers, product developers and growers. The ‘Flower Trials’ stretch from the The Netherlands to Germany, and offer the platform to showcase new plants, new marketing concepts and ideas, and to entertain guests and offer a meeting space for plants people.

I have been attending the flower trials for over 10 years now, and always attempt to see as many companies as possible, so that means lots of early starts and late finishes, with tonnes of coffee and stroopwafel in-between!
