2019–20 New Varieties
We have added over 300 new varieties to our 2019–20 program. Working with our breeder partners, including Dümmen Orange, Darwin Plants, Green Fuse Botanicals, Danziger, PlantHaven International, and Concept Plants, we’ve created a liner offering that is sure to meet your sales and production needs.
