June 2010


Over the next few days, Graham will be at the Garden Event at West Dean (this Saturday and Sunday) and then the HTA National Plant Show on Tuesday 29 June.

Contact us if you wish to make an appointment to see him.

Graham will be at the Week 24 Flower Trials next week. You’d be silly not to be there! His itinerary looks something like this:

  • Tuesday: Hendrik ido Ambacht
  • Wednesday: Westland
  • Wednesday afternoon: Hillegom
  • Thursday morning: Honselersdijk
  • Thursday afternoon: Aalsmeer
  • Friday morning: Düsseldorf area
  • Friday afternoon: Gensingen

If you would like to meet up with Graham, then contact us directly. His diary is very full, but there are a few gaps available for meeting growers and breeders.

The Flower Trials are one of the most most important events in the horticultural world now. Several varieties managed by PFE will be on display there, so be sure to take your camera and notebook!

We have been busy – we have a whole list of new EU Plant Variety Rights granted in the last few weeks:

  • Hebe TULLYRASPB – Raspberry Ripple
  • Hebe TULLYSTRAW – Strawberries and Cream
  • Lavandula stoechas WITH LOVE
  • Nemesia FLEURPDBLU – Provencal Dusky Blue
  • Nemesia FLEURPDPNK – Provencal Dusky Pink
  • Nemesia FLEURRAS – Raspberries and Cream
  • Nemesia CONFETTI FROSTED PINK – also known as Jubilee
  • Prunella BINSUMDAZ – Summer Daze
  • Zantedeschia aethiopica SNOW WHITE

That’s a 100% record – we filed nine applications and all nine were granted, including one variegated plant (which are always more tricky).

If we can help you with your application for EU Plant Variety Rights, contact us today. We offer two services – either full representation service, acting as your agent for trials, licensing, policing, marketing and more or we can simply act as your procedural representative for PVR filing only. Ask us for details.
