WHAT TO EXPECT:

8-week acclimatized plant

 

  • Flowering size plants after two growing seasons

Stage 3 plants normally require two growing seasons to reach flowering  size ( three seasons if your growing season is short).  Plants may be sold in garden centers after the first growing season or as mature plants.

OUR PRODUCT MARKETS:

These products are targeted for both the garden and cut flower industries.  All our products are from tissue culture.

Our tissue culture technology allows the cut flower industry to achieve the introduction of new varieties more quickly and economically than by traditional means.

First flowering is obtained normally in the third growing season although gardeners and growers with a longer growing season (e.g. North American West Coast, France) have seen up to 50% of plants flower at the beginning of the second growing season!

The number of flowers on the bush will continue to increase until the plant reaches maturity (approx. 5 years).
