Plant breeding

The Fresh from Nature growers not only produce the most beautiful plants with the strongest resistance to pests and diseases; they are also involved in breeding these plants.

‘Plant breeding’: what is it actually?

Wikipedia gives the definition as:

‘the art and science of changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics’.

Our growers are constantly working on developing new plants that can be clearly distinguished from existing varieties. This research is directed not only towards developing plants with longer flowering periods, new flower shapes, and new leaf and flower colours but also plants that are even more resistant to pests and diseases. This is how our growers are continually making improvements in both the beauty of plants as well as promoting their health potential!
