Our sister wholesale company the Guernsey Clematis Nursery exhibited at the IPM Essen show 2019. (January 22-25th 2019 - Sales Director Lindsay Reid is shown in the image).
Billed as the World's leading Fair for Horticulture the show attracts worldwide visitors and the company was able to display and provide information on its range of young plants. The Guernsey Clematis Nursery Here currently exports worldwide to Britain, mainland Europe, Asia, North and South America and numerous other countries and continents.
Though more functional in nature and focussing mainly on young plants the stand still featured some flowering plants in containers. Getting such clematis to flower in January is always a challenge but the plants were manipulated in a minor way by cold storing from late summer through Autumn and providing subtle heat and light from early December.
