At Ebbing-Lohaus, we specialise in the production of seed and young plants. Our top-quality Primula acaulis seed is marketed to seed wholesalers and nurseries all over the world. Within the German market, we supply mainly young plants. Young plants are marketed primarily as plugs in trays of 336 cells, each cell measuring 1.7 cm in diameter. These plants are ready for potting and should be grown under glass. We also offer pricked-out plants in trays of 102 cells, each cell measuring 2.7 cm in diameter. These plants can also be grown outdoors. Another option is our seed boxes, with 800 plants (seedlings) per box.Our breeding programmes are centred around F1 hybrids, which are distinguished by their high uniformity. This simplifies every aspect of our production planning, from space utilisation through to final sale. Another branch of our business is the cultivation of Argyranthemum frutescens and Cyclamen persicum for marketing as finished products. These are sold exclusively through Flora Holland auctions.
