'Green Fits All' was the slogan everything was centred around at Plantarium and GROEN-Direkt from 21 to 23 August. Both trade fairs again took place under one roof and offered international trade professionals a complete green experience in Boskoop.
Cercis canadensis 'Carolina Sweetheart', submitted by Joh. Stolwijk & Zn. from Boskoop, won the Plantarium Press Award in the category Garden, balcony and patio plants. In the Concepts category, the award went to POTTBURRI, submitted by F.N. Kempen from Mijndrecht.
Clematis ‘Zo14100’ (Little Lemons) has been voted best Novelty of Plantarium 2019. The plant was submitted by Clematiskwekerij J. van Zoest from Boskoop. Clematis ‘Zo14100’ Little Lemons is a breakthrough in Clematis cultivation. The plant produces an extraordinary, very compact and bushy growth and is non-climbing. Little Lemons blooms abundantly with pale yellow bell-shaped nodding flowers and can be planted in borders and pots as well as hanging baskets. Unique and innovative, according to the KVBC (Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society) jury.
As soon as visitors enter Plantarium and GROEN-Direkt, they are shown a pilot of compact living/recreation in combination with experiencing nature. Because 'small' is the buzzword for urban renewal and rural development, 'Tiny Houses' and 'Tiny Forests' are becoming more and more popular. A 'Tiny House' situated amid a natural oasis of water and greenery is on exhibition in the entrance hall. It is a great example of the theme 'Green Fits All'.
