Simplify your growing operations with plants from a Benchrun Collection.
“Four Star’s Benchrun Collections are not designed just for large growers, but are equally as valuable for medium to small growers,” says Curt Varsogea, Sales Manager. “They work really well for growers who don’t have the luxury of extra space or can’t afford to make a mistake.”
What are the Benchrun Collections? Four Star’s grower team has put together two collections of varieties for 2016 (Cool and Warm plants) with similar growing requirements that will give growers these advantages:
Growers can select the varieties they want and be assured that the plants will be easier and more efficient to grow together.
Warm-growing varieties such as Solenostemon (Coleus), Ipomoea and Euphorbia are among the plants selected for the Warm Benchrun Collection.
Popular varieties in the Benchrun Collections, such as Supertunia® Vista Bubblegum® and Royal Velvet Petunia share common culture requirements.
The Cool Collection for 2016 includes a mix of 30 different bestselling varieties, including Butterfly Argyranthemum, Superbells® Calibrachoa, Laguna™ Lobelia, White Knight® Lobularia, Sunsatia® Nemesia, Supertunia® and Surfinia® Petunia and Superbena® Verbena.
The Warm Collection features 24 different varieties of Angelface® Angelonia, Pequeña Rosalita™ Cleome, Vermillionaire™ Cuphea, Diamond® Euphorbia, Ipomoea, Pink Wonder™ and Whirlwind® Scaevola, Lemon Coral™ Sedum, Solenostemon/Coleus, Snowstorm® Sutera/Bacopa and Catalina® Torenia. These plants share warmer growing temperatures and other cultural requirements.
“This is a Four Star resource we’ve put together for growers,” explains Varsogea. “It gives them another opportunity to grow successfully. We understand that there are always fluctuations in production, but by growing these plants together, growers have an advantage.”
