Ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues,
At a time when the borders are formally closed and direct
contact with people broken off, the means of communication
we are left with are limited. A key one for us however is our
seed catalogue, a catalogue which is published regularly every
year. This is our message to you, proof on paper of our work,
a piece of us and our company which you can hold in your hand
and actually touch. There is a lot of work not only behind
the products presented, but also behind this publication. Just
like our new varieties, it is created in the hands of our breeders,
reproducing and giving material form to the results of their
tireless work, and this is why we want the catalogue in itself
to be just as beautiful as the flowers on offer there. It would
be wonderful if it could also convey the unmistakable scent
of flowers wafting out of our production greenhouses every
time we open the door.
Just like every year, we have included a few new varieties
for you. After the enormous success of the Catharanthus roseus
Volcano F1 group which we introduced last year, the offer of
new products is noticeably more modest, yet nonetheless interesting,
all the more intense for it and the scope of the constantly
expanding work of our breeders promises a lot of attractive
new products over the coming seasons.
Fans of small-flowered low varieties will in particular appreciate
the addition to the existing colour range of Petit F1 mini
petunias. The newly launched Petit F1 Blue
is one of the earliest
blooming and most attractive in the series.
The Dot Star F1 Red
petunia propagated by seed represents a
revolutionary achievement in our breeding programme. The variety
extends our portfolio of petunias with white dots and spots
which it was only possible to grow from cuttings in the past.
It fittingly complements our two previously introduced varieties,
the Dot Star F1 Dark Violet
and the Dot
Star F1 Deep Pink
The attractive white dots and spots really do now stand out
against the deep red “background”.
We also managed to complete work on an improved version of
the well-known large-flowered petunia Snění F1
. The variety
is now more balanced, more compact, more resistant and meets
the latest requirements of growers.
It is now already certain that the range of colours and colour
combinations currently under preparation and to be launched
in the future will pleasantly surprise you and perhaps even
us. Our intensive breeding will take the path of uniqueness
and novelty, not just following the existing trends, but setting
We would like to thank you for the confidence you have placed
in us, for your cooperation and for enabling us to overcome
all of the unexpected obstacles we encountered together as
well as for allowing our joint business to enjoy healthy growth.
We greatly appreciate the exceptional and friendly relationship
we enjoy and look forward to further cooperation with you!
