The Greenhouse Grower team saw loads of memorable plants during day four, as it visited Dümmen Orange, Chisan Orchids, and Windmill Nursery.

Terra Nova Nurseries Explains New Distribution Model; Kientzler Presents Expanded Product Line And Partnerships

At Windmill Nursery’s California Spring Trials location, Terra Nova Nurseries, Kientzler, KiwiFlora, and Kapiteyn presented their new varieties and concepts for growers’ and retailers’ consideration. Terra Nova Nurseries Terra Nova Nurseries had several nice introductions, featuring unique genetics for growers looking to offer something a little more distinct.
