Tesselaar – Wholesale growing across three continents

by | May 20, 2017 | News | 0 comments


Anthony Tesselaar Plants find, trial? and release through their licensed grower partners / wholesale growing sector distinctly different and desirable new plants across three continents. Australasia, Europe and North America combine to represent the 15 countries where their range of popular plants are grown and sold.

Long Term approach

One such grower is Seiont Nurseries in North Wales (UK). Neil Alcock commented: “The big difference working with Tesselaar is that their approach and varieties are always looking to the long term. We currently grow Daphne Perfume Princess, Cordyline Festival Burgundy and will be re launching Burgundy Spire in 2018.?

Festival? Lime

Festival? Lime is another quality plant from the Tesselaar stable. This sibling of the highly popular and proven Festival Burgundy cordyline is different from other selections in the cordyline genus as it is a compact, clump forming cordyline that cascades into a round ball shape.

It is ideal to plant either in a container or as a dramatic colour highlight to add to other plants in gardens and landscapes.

?We will also be adding Lime festival to the range” added Neil: “Our market to the Garden Centre supply chain and mail order companies is enhanced by this working relationship with Anthony Tesselaar.?
