VOLMARY CUSTOMER DAYS 2019 AT THE KALDENHOF

EVERY YEAR AFTER PENTECOST THE COMPANY VOLMARY GMBH INTRODUCES A PART OF ITS ASSORTMENT AT THE FLOWER TRIALS FAIR IN THE NETHERLANDS - THIS YEAR AS WELL.

NEWS 2019

The latest varieties of perennials, cut flowers, herbs, fruits, vegetables, bedding and balcony plants were shown to the interested visitors. The large show beds gave a sense of how the plants grow under natural weather conditions. The many theme beds inspired the visitors to own sales-promoting plantings.

This year, Volmary focused on new varieties of plants that are particularly suitable for snacking or creating a variety of dishes. The sweet potato 'Erato® Violet' impresses with its purple-colored flesh and still has the well-known, slightly sweet taste of a sweet potato. The lychee tomato 'Star Benas®' has a taste of cherry and is a well-known 'snacking vegetable'. Its shoots, leaves and cladding are surrounded by long spines that protect against birds. Another vegetable to snack on is the pearl tomato 'Tomberry®'. Volmary offers the only berry-sized tomato in two different colors - yellow-fruited and red-fruited. In the fruit assortment there is a novelty the pearl melon 'Copa®', it is yellow-fleshed and its shell impresses with purple stripes.

The Volmary® Lavender has a new concept pot called 'Scents of Summer' - the scents of summer.

EVENTS ON SITE

The visitors enjoyed cooking Volmary products directly from the garden with show cooks as well as the tasting of snack vegetables, such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, and the great floristry for DIY with the florist master Anke Krohme. During regular product tours, Volmary presented the new product range for the coming season, and during guided tours in Senden, customers were able to get a first impression of the production.

LECTURES
