Committed to sustainable cultivation
At Hem Genetics we specialise in developing compact varieties that reduce the use of chemical plant growth regulators (PGRs). Our naturally dwarf varieties, which come with the “Low Grow Approved” logo, need no PGRs at all, making them ideal for more sustainable production. Examples are our dwarf petunias Limbo and Mambo, geranium Nano, salvia Reddy and cineraria Quicksilver. Hem Genetics is one of the few breeding companies in the world to develop and market F1 bedding plant varieties that stay naturally compact. We are committed to creating environmentally responsible concepts such as these, as we regard this as an important step towards making both the ornamental horticulture sector and the world in general more sustainable.
