Trade press clippings & activities
We're always encouraging the green trade to buy, sell and plant more geraniums. Here are a few examples...

Most countries • Our partners have strong links to key players in the green trade, several of them also have large contact databases, so they send email newsletters to garden centres and florists giving guidance and encouraging sales of pelargonium, and sharing our downloadable PoS materials. 

Germany Coverage on the Pelargonium for Europe campaign in Taspo, a leading green trade newspaper.

Breaking News
Syngenta joins Pelargonium for Europe campaign
We are pleased to announce that as of October 2018, breeding company Syngenta will support the marketing activities of Pelargonium for Europe by making the same contribution of 0.2-euro cents per geranium cutting as all the other shareholders. 
It is hoped that Pelargonium for Europe will acquire EU funding for future campaigns, and a prerequisite for EU funding is that the industry also contributes its own resources, therefore Syngenta’s membership alongside that of breeders Dümmen Orange, Elsner PAC, Florensis / P. van der Haak Handelskwekerij, Geranien Endisch and Selecta One is greatly appreciated. Together, we can strengthen the future of the campaign and of international geranium sales.
