Dutch Spring Trials announces reopening of event by appointment only

VOORHOUT, Netherlands: During the first week of May, Dutch Spring Trials – a joyful association of eight plant breeders – will showcase the latest in bedding and patio plant breeding. These so-called pack trials have been a strong tradition going back many years and are the perfect occasion for growers, garden retailers, seed companies and other industry professionals to review the latest pot and bedding plants on the greenhouse benches while discussing business possibilities on a one-to-one basis.

ABZ Seeds, Benary, Hem Genetics, MNP/Suntory, PanAmerican Seed, Prudac, Takii and Syngenta Flowers/Floranova, will be welcoming visitors by appointment only on Monday 2nd, Tuesday 3rd, Wednesday 4th and Friday 6th May. No visits are scheduled on Thursday the 5th of May as this is Liberation Day, a Dutch public holiday. Opening hours will be from 08:00 to 17:00 hrs.

Interested visitors are invited to make an appointment via the contact details below. Breeders are happy to meet their peers in person. However, a digital tour is also possible for those unable to travel. Please discuss the digital options with each company individually and upfront.
