On Saturday, July 30, 2022, we had a great visitor at our headquarters in Mühlhausen. The mayor of Stuttgart, Dr. Frank Nopper, wanted to get an impression of the size and performance of our company. After a short presentation, we went under the expert guidance of Nils Klemm, Dr. Ulrich Sander and Dirk Schimmelpfeng into the laboratory, the cold storage rooms and the greenhouses. Some of them had high temperatures and a warm, humid climate, as poinsettias are currently being cultivated here for the upcoming season. The highlight, however, was the visit to our large outdoor trial field. Here, the mayor was particularly impressed by the beauty of the plants, the diversity of varieties, the colorful spectrum and the different breeding directions. After the visit, Dr. Nopper was pleased to know that one of the world's leading breeders, producers and marketers of ornamental and useful plants is located in Stuttgart.
