It should have been an ordinary story about a press tour, but everything has changed since the release of my previous article, the coronavirus and the announced quarantine have changed our plans for life and all our future plans. Everyone has to learn to live and work in a completely different way, including transferring part of the interaction to the online mode, even if they did not want, did not like, or even did not know how before. Therefore, in this article I am writing about those companies that we got acquainted with during the GrootGroenPlus exhibition last year and I give some links, perhaps they will be useful to you.
So, let me remind you that the GrootGroenPlus kennel show is one of the best international kennel exhibitions in Holland today and is already quite well known in Russia. More information can be found at www.grootgroenplus.nl. Over the past few years, it has been visited by groups of Russian gardeners and gardeners who not only attended the exhibition, but also had the opportunity to participate in a special press tour program for an international group of journalists. The last exhibition was attended by 26 representatives of the press from different European countries.
This year, two press tours were held: one “internal” for some exhibition stands and one “external”, with a visit to the company. First, let's walk through the exhibition.

M aarten van O verbeek is a young Dutch company: 50 hectares of loamy and sandy soils, 35 hectares of which are forested, the remaining 15 hectares are used for the cultivation of green silage or maize. The nursery specializes in so-called stanza trees of different varieties, types and sizes. We were shown how the formation process takes place. A specially prepared steel base with bamboo poles is used, as a result, the frame always holds the tree frame beautifully. Differently oriented forms are also prepared, including, for example, in the form of a "roof" or "umbrella". To make the transport of these shapes more efficient, you can release one of the longitudinal supports so that the tree can be neatly stacked.
In addition to the aforementioned specialization, a wide range of alley and ornamental trees are grown here, ranging in size from 12-14 to 25-30 cm in circumference of the trunk. Thanks to well-established contacts and operational relations in the team, the company works very flexibly and service-oriented in order to be able to quickly respond to the wishes of customers.
