We are pleased to present to you our new catalogue for biennials and spring perennials. This year we are celebrating 25 years of Delta ® , so it is a special honor for us to hear from a selection of customers, some of whom have been with us since the beginning of our Delta ® journey. A success that has also been made possible by all of you. Your high demands are our challenge, even if that means improving the best even further. We have continued to invest in breeding the Delta ® series. Long desired by you and our colleagues, the Pure Orange has also been improved in a way that almost makes this variety a new reference. I am sure that you will share the enthusiasm not only of myself but also of my colleagues. The founding father of our Delta ® and Endurio series, Martien Gutter (the Endurio Sky Blue Martien was named after him) is rightly, very proud of the development this genetic has taken. Although we already launched the Freefall series last year, I would like to take this opportunity to report the very positive feedback from your colleagues. Freefall is a large-flowered hanging Viola for hanging baskets, bowls and planters which has proved very successful this year. Our MultiColour Viola cornuta Trio Mixes in one plug have also been very well received. Our guarantee to deliver 100% Trio plants with extremely high uniformity was convincing.

But of course we did not remain inactive in the further assortment. We have already had success with the Primula series Mitra and Mitra Late, which are particularly up-to-date due to their low need for growth regulator. We also look forward to the introduction of Paradiso Early and Mid as new series next to the Paradiso Late series. All tests here were very positive. The new Laura series for the Myosotis comes with three colours and is also very promising with its resistance to mildew. In the spring perennial range there are new colours in Saxifraga, Arabis and Aubrieta. No matter what you need, we will do everything we can to ensure that the coming season is a successful one. Our entire team in sales, customer service, along with both technical and marketing support is always at your disposal.

FlowerWatch used cameras and physical inspection to monitor the plants. In the report, FlowerWatch certifies all tested Deltini colours as ‘clearly better’. Deltini for the greatest efficiency in the small- flowered Viola market segment!

Within the small-flowered Viola market segment, the real game-changer when it comes to shelf life, is the Deltini series. Besides the fact that the series meets all grower requirements, it also outperforms every other series on the shop floor. We tested our Deltini series in cooperation with FlowerWatch, by comparing it to other series available on the market. The shelf life test included a 2-day transport

Over a period of 9 weeks, Deltini colours were tested for garden performance against other varieties available on the market. The results are very clear: Deltini is also the most reliable series on the market when it comes to garden performance. Deltini for a guaranteed positive consumer experience!

It may be that plants that remain compact at grower and retail level, make concessions in terms of garden performance. However, with Deltini, nothing could be further from the truth. The Deltini series gives consumer exactly what they want: flowers, flowers and even more flowers.

We are celebrating 25 years of Delta®!

1995-2000

• Introduction of Viola x wittrockiana F1 Delta ® series under the company name S&G

• Delta ® replaced the Viola x wittrockiana Roc series • 17 colours at introduction • Bred by Martien Gutter • Stabilizing hybrid parents with innovative technique • 5 new colours introduced

An eternally young classic celebrates its birthday! 25 years of Delta ® are a reason to celebrate. Bred and produced from the beginning to the present day to meet your highest demands - often imitated, but still the barely attainable benchmark. How can this work over such a long period? The secret of our success lies in the fact that we have never stopped improving the best. Our breeders observe the market in order to sense or create trends with innovations, at a time when they are still far away in the future. Standing still means taking a step backwards, and in the last 6 years alone, over 40% of the Delta ® range has been renewed or improved. So that we can look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary as market leader, we will continue to put all our energy into the core values of Delta ® . Quality and reliability are our top priority which means that only the best genetics can be included in our Delta ® family. Without promising too much - but looking into the future of Delta ® breeding which leads us into anticipation and will also be another milestone for you, heralding a new era. Your high demands from Delta ® genetics are our challenge, which we will gladly continue to meet.

“Immediately after the German reunification we received a recommendation from a Syngenta sales representative on the production of flowers. We did not regret this decision and therefore we were one of the first viola producers in the region right from the start. Delta ® genetics was good from the beginning and stood for a wide range of varieties and a good shelf life. Of course, we also tried other genetics, but the feedback from end consumers made us move exclusively to Delta ® genetic after a short time. A long time ago we supplied just one cemetery gardener with Delta ® genetics, today we supply all the cemetery gardeners in the region because the quality of the plants is convincing in the long run. The shelf life and flower power have always been convincing both in production and with the consumer. The recommendations of the Syngenta sales staff showed a high level of knowledge about genetics and have always helped us with the right variety composition. Regular improvements and innovations from Delta ® genetics continue to help us meet our own high standards.”

“For over 25 years a team of breeders, growers, pollinators and scientists in Syngenta work every day to create the best pansies for all our customers: grower, retailer and consumer. We want you to have pansy that are easy and reliable to produce, sell through and enjoyed in every garden. I am proud to lead the breeding process of Delta ® Pansies for over a decade now and I’m grateful to see our pansies being produced and enjoyed all over the world. But there is no time to sit back and relax, climate change, the need for more sustainable production, evolving consumer trends are changing the requirements for success of tomorrow’s pansy. Myself and my team are looking forward to continuing to provide you with the best pansies today and for the coming 25 years.”

“Our company was created in 1913 by my great-grandfather with a major focus on Pelargonium. We have produced pansies for 30 years and always use Delta ® from the beginning with a great success. We are looking for a product that flowers well in short days, with a good shelf life and easy to prepare; which is not the case for all other series in the market. In fact, next year, we plan to increase the amount of improved single colours in our planning. For example, Lavender Shades, which is a fantastic trend colour. In the last year, we have adapted our fertilization program following the advice of Ben, Technical Specialist from Syngenta Flowers. The improvement in shelf life and rich flowering on not only biennials but other crops, is there.”

“What we appreciate about Delta ® genetics is the high uniformity and the wide variety of colours. The structure of the plants is very good, they are compact and can be controlled very reliably. The series has proven itself under various weather conditions. For planning, it is always important for us to reliably clear the areas, this is always guaranteed with Delta ® and there are almost no leftovers when selling. We appreciate the constant improvements in genetics; for example, the mildew tolerance has continuously improved and the uniformity of the individual varieties has become more and more adapted in the flowering process, even the post-flowering behavior is very reliable.”

“Delta ® Viola are the most complete and balanced hybrid large-flowered Pansy on the market. They are supplied as young plants in a 480 cell Tray (X-tray) and enables, among other things, robotic potting which is a key to success for us.

In the past, we sowed ourselves not only Delta ® seed but also other genetics but in the meanwhile we switched completely to the Delta ® genetic in the X-Tray which always has a high uniformity.”

“We as Kwekerij Hartink grow Delta ® violas from the beginning. We sell regional to flower shops, gardeners and garden centers. Most of our customers would like to have a wide colour range and uniform growth. Because the Delta ® series matched our and our customers criteria, we started growing the Delta ® series. By continuous improvements within the series, Delta ® still meets all our wishes. We expect that Syngenta will stay the market leader because they are in good contact with the growers and they know where our wishes and challenges lay!”

“We oversee landscaping in Madrid and to flower that beautiful capital we have used Delta ® for many years. We chose that genetic because its strong and well branching. It is continuously flowering from October till March, even in frost and low light days conditions. And if you look at pansies close to Madrid, you will find them very easily, as growers have confidence in this variety.”

“For 20 years we have been producing pansies, from the very beginning we have been growing Delta ® . We are attached to the Delta ® because the plants have large flowers and do not stretch out. We value Delta ® varieties for their even flowering, which allows us to offer a set of colours at the same time, and the rich colours encourage buyers. In spring, when the temperature in the production facilities rises, the plants maintain a compact habit. Delta ® has not lost its features for 20 years and is constantly being improved.”

“Let us introduce you to Gabrieli Luciano from Italy, he produces Delta ® since the very beginning, 25 years ago.

Violas of the Delta ® family are very much appreciated by all consumers who plant them in their garden because there is a wide assortment of pure colours, with eyes and blotches. Gardeners also appreciate this series because they are very easy, continuously flowering and their large flowers bring colour to beautiful gardens and flowerbeds by using a few plant. Over the years, we have integrated the colour assortment that was gradually replaced by improved genetics and new colours.”

“We have been producing Delta ® Violas for over 20 years. This genetics is characterised by a homogeneous, balanced growth and the flowering times of the individual varieties and the series are very uniform. Delta ® offers us a wide range of colours and a long flowering time with a good shelf life. What is especially important in our production is that the plants have a compact growth and are very resistant to diseases.”

“For us, the customer has always been, and still is, the most important thing. If our customers are satisfied and we grow with them, then we do everything right. This is the case with the Delta ® Violas. We produce a large proportion for garden centers and here Delta ® genetics are unbeatable. The uniformity is extremely high and the control of the culture on time is very safe and easy. Even with a long sales window the durability of the plants is excellent. With the existing colour variety and the constant further improvements, I am already looking forward to the next 25 years with Delta ® .”

a 12-day shelf life test in a retail environment. All plants came from the same source and were treated the same. FlowerWatch used cameras and physical inspection to monitor the plants. In the report, FlowerWatch confirms that 12 of the 16 tested Delta colours are ‘clearly better’ and the remaining four are ‘slightly better or equal to’ the other tested varieties. Delta has a longer sales period, less wastage and thus greater efficiency!

This large flowered Pansy series has earned its strong market position because it fulfils grower and retailer needs best. The uniformity and plant habit are unmatched! If you are looking for a series with a short production cycle and the best shelf life on the market, it is the perfect solution.

Garden performance test at Syngenta trial field, De Lier (NL)

That is why we also carried out extensive trials on Delta for garden performance at our trial field in the Netherlands. Over a period of 9 weeks Delta was tested against other varieties available on the market. This test clearly showed that, due to its genetic performance, Delta has the highest potential success rate in the consumer gardens. Delta for more flowers, good configuration and an extensive enjoyment period!

Besides an efficient production and a profitable resale, Delta is bred to give consumers a great experience. Pansies bring a lot of colour into the consumer’s garden at a time of the year when the availability of flowering products is limited. At Syngenta, we feel the responsibilty to make sure that both the experienced gardener and the impulse buyer are successful with their purchase of right plants.
