In this episode I’m joined by Gary Vollmer, Product & Technical Manager for Selecta One. Selecta’s portfolio includes many best in class products but for this episode we’re focusing on poinsettias.
Gary is the keeper of tons of knowledge when it comes to poinsettias with decades of production experience, product trialing and selection and deep insight into current and future breeding. He has his finger on the pulse of the North American market, as well as European trends that drive holiday crop sales. He works with growers selling discounted Black Friday poinsettias, specialty growers filling market niches with unique, super high end plants and every type of production scenario in between. And he’s not afraid to address the hot issues! You’re going to want to listen all the way to the end of this one.
