Betterbuxus® Wins Gold!
Due to the Covid pandemic, the Spring edition of Florall was held digitally.
This way, wholesalers and retailers got the chance to view the Spring assortment of the Flemish growers and to get in touch with them.
After an intensive deliberation phase, the jury made the decision to award Gold for Betterbuxus®.
These new varieties are resistant against the fungal diseases which pose the main problem for Buxus.
They are the result of the breeding work of Herplant BV in cooperation with Flanders Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (ILVO) based on the large collection of Buxus and crosses between wild species.
The company Herplant in Beerse has protected these 4 hybrids with Breeders Right and they will be introduced under the brand Betterbuxus®.
