Rimol Greenhouse Systems Inc.

Rimol Greenhouse Systems is scheduled to release an addition to its movable product line, the Movable Feast Greenhouse, this summer. Available as a 30-ft. by 48-ft. greenhouse, it’s designed to increase efficiency and widen crop rotations. Rimol collaborated with renowned American farmer/educator Eliot Coleman and Ohio State University’s Extension Vegetable Specialist, Dr. Matt Kleinhenz while designing the greenhouse. This structure will be an attractive option to growers looking to cultivate on terrain previously not suitable for movable structures.

PanAmerican Seed
Vinca Valiant makes well-branched, market-ready plants with large flowers that show off high-impact color at point of sale and in the landscape. Its superior vigor allows Valiant-planted landscapes to better survive environmental stresses, such as intense sun, heat and drought, along with salt and cool/damp conditions. The Valiant series is low maintenance and available in six key colors and a mix. A great choice for landscape longevity! Pictured: Valiant Lilac Vinca.

Osram Sylvania
ZELION HL Horticulture LED Grow Light Fixtures are suitable for a wide range of applications, including turf and landscape maintenance, commercial greenhouses and indoor gardening. With a long-rated life of 100,000 hours, these fixtures use less energy and last longer than conventional high-pressure sodium lamps, and two times the life of some competing fixtures. State-of-the-art Oslon LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors can be custom tuned to stimulate plant growth by up to 40% while drastically reducing energy consumption.

Dümmen Group
The Salute series from Bartels includes three eye-catching colors: Deep Blue, Ice Blue (pictured) and Pink. These new salvia are extremely floriferous, even in their first year. This line offers a strong upright habit and it’s very quick to flower, even under short days. Easy-to-control height makes it a great choice for almost any container size! The Salute line has been bred to withstand heat and humidity, making it perfect for both Northern and Southern markets.

Tuffy Plant Collection
The Tuffy Plant Collection has once again expanded to offer landscape professionals and homeowners in USDA Zones 9 and 10 even more options for low-maintenance landscapes. One of the latest entries is an ultra-compact groundcover, Westringia fruticosa Low Horizon.  Low Horizon grows to only about 1- to 1.5-ft. tall and 3-ft. wide, responds well to pruning and is virtually covered with small white flowers in the spring. Like all coastal rosemary, Low Horizon is both salt and drought tolerant. GT
