Houseplant of the month
The ‘Houseplant of the Month’ campaign in October focusses on the Cymbidium, which flowers for weeks in red, violet, pink, orange, yellow, green or two-tone. Its imposing size and presence mean that the plant is known as the king of the orchids. What’s notable is that unlike most other orchids Cymbidium has no aerial roots but a root ball. Although the Cymbidium looks tropical, it survives effortlessly on the cool, rocky southern slopes of the Himalayas.
Garden plant of the month
In October the ‘Garden Plant of the Month’ are Green Covering. They increase the biodiversity in your surrounding and purify the air because the plants absorb and filter carbon emissions. Stonecrop, sempervivum and rockfoil keep cool in summer and warm in winter - and also look good at the same time.
The ‘Flower Agenda’ focusses on the Chrysanthemum in October. No other cut flower offers so much choice, from sparkling stars and voluminous spray chrysanthemums to cheerful pompoms and spectacular soloists which can achieve a diameter of more than 10 centimetres.
Houseplants of the Month and the Flower Agenda for 2020
The ‘Houseplants of the Month’ and the ‘Flower Agenda’ for 2020 are selected and the product list for 2020 has been drawn up. In autumn all images, texts and downloadable posters will be available via the image bank of the Flower Council of Holland.
