Petunia Galaxy Lilac is a Breakthrough in Petunias!
Construction of a new home for young plant producer Schneider began last month (June) in Altena.
This was marked with a ceremony during which Altena’s counsellor, Matthijs van Oosten 'baptised' one of the latest breeding breakthroughs in petunias: the Petunia Galaxy Lilac.
Seed-Raised Young Plants
In 2021, this new Petunia will be amongst a host of other seed-raised and cutting-raised young plants that will be grown in Schneider’s modern greenhouse complex.
The new location will boast several sustainable innovations with the greenhouse divided into different climate zones for young plant production.
Efficient greenhouse design will allow Schneider to realise young plant production in the most energy-efficient way and with a minimum amount of pesticides and fertilisers.
Schneider Altena is scheduled for completion in November this year.
