De Kwakel, April 2022 – Now that a physical Flower Trials will take place as usual in June 2022, breeder HBA is happy to organize a Hydrangea Night. On Thursday evening June 16, hydrangea growers and relations are welcome to visit the Agriom location at Achterweg 58A in De Kwakel for an informative and enjoyable evening.
,,After two years we are looking forward to physically meet again the people that we do business with. And we are happy to throw them a small party’’, says director Jaap Stelder. ,,Especially our foreign relations, whom we have spoken only online for such a long time, are cordially invited to our company. Let’s have a festive gathering with some drinks, good food and, of course, our beautiful products.”
The HBA breeding team has not been idle in the past two years and will show a number of novelties in both the pot hydrangea range and the cut hydrangeas.
Among the pot hydrangeas, a number of double-flowered varieties stand out, such as Florencia (a white mophead), Floria (a blue or pink lacecap that fills up nicely) and Flurry (a white lacecap). The double-flowered pot hydrangeas from HBA score particularly well in terms of shelf life, according to various tests.
The range of cut hydrangeas, known as the HBA Royal-series, will be expanded with a few varieties this year. ,,A further broadening of the cut assortment is welcomed by the market”, says Stelder. HBA shows, among other things, two new white cut varieties, both a single-flowered and a double-flowered one.
At the location in De Kwakel test sections of the entire HBA cut hydrangea assortment can be viewed during the Hydrangea Night.
The HBA staff is looking forward to provide information and making it a pleasant evening. We hope to see you. Please, be welcome!
