Best Novelty

The judging of the new cultivars is done by an independent judging committee of the Royal Association for Boskoop Cultures (KVBC) where everything revolves around assortment. This ensures the correctness and quality of the inspections. The jury judges the plants on ornamental value, flower colour, flowering time and period, leaf colour, plant shape but also on characteristics such as health and propagation. Below you will find the entries that will be judged during the GROEN-Direkt Summer Days on June 10 and 11, 2023.

The winner of the GREEN RETAIL AWARD is...
