Also at the IPM in Essen we were well represented! Our seed supplier Sakata had a large part of their stand filled with Montana Lisianthus. Great was the joy when we won the price again with Rosanne Green:

was presented to Montana Lisianthus from Poeldijk.
According to the VKC Jury: ‘The Standard of entries this year was particularly high’’ ‘All the judges (more than 100 in total) were impressed by the quality of the flowers and plants’’

The Interpolis House of Quality is the place whre top growers show their very best. With the Interpolis Quality Cup and the independent judging of the VKC, we are proud to support the development of quality in growing flowers and pot plants’’
The New2Market Award is the prize for the best market introduction in the categories Cut Flowers and Pot Plants. The entries from Atlantis Nursery, Monster with ‘Medinaella J’Adore Dolce Vita’ and Montana Lisianthus with Eustoma russilianum ‘Rosanne Green’’ were judged by the VKC jury to be the best introductions 2012/13.
The red carpet was rolled out, like last year, by Javado and Hilverda de Boer. This means that the winners of the New2Market Awards will profit from one year’s market support from these export companies.

Montana Lisianthus will deliver a new Lisianthus primeur in September 2012: Rosanne Dark Brown and Rosanne Amber Green. These new varieties are the beginning of a new era in Lisianthus: ‘ultimate elegance’ with very firm petals in amazingly intense colours: Wine red and apple green!
Montana Lisianthus has also had a QR code designed and placed on the packaging. Now traders, florists and consumers can meet the grower digitally, via the website. Looking forward to meeting you!
The introduction of the renewed Montana Lisianthus sleeve. Gorgeous! This new packaging turns every bunch of ‘Montana Lisianthus’ into a chic gift. A delight to receive, but also to give! What more could a woman ask for?
The introduction of the renewed Mono Lisi box in the new house style colours, it looks like a lovely gift! 50 flowers shine within and smile at you through the transparent window in the lid.

FloraHolland Trade Fair Aalsmeer
In the autumn of 2011, Montana Lisianthus shone with a stunning stand to present their new logo together with some beautiful new varieties. The stand, in a prominent end-facing location, was a delight to behold and many a passer-by stopped in their tracks to take a good look at everything. Great fun to do, excellent for gaining new contacts and a pleasure to receive all the compliments…

VKC Judging Keukenhof 2011
Jury report: By far the best scoring double flowered Lisianthus was the Rosita Jade from Montana Lisianthus in Poeldijk. The high score (9.60) was awarded for the green colour, large buds and the compact branching. A very promising novelty, that was awarded the ‘Lisianthus Keukenhof 2011’
