Boot & Dart. continually innovate, both in the production process and introducing new varieties, allowing us to satisfy our customers’ requirements. Our in house Research & Development team take a market oriented approach to trialing and selecting new Landscape Plants. The three key criteria in this respect are:
- Robustness and good health
- Weed suppression, suitable for low maintenance mass planting
- Long period of colour an interest
Hybridizing, selecting and trialing to produce new varieties is requires a very long term approach. Triumph and disappointment can follow hot on each other’s heels, during this endeavor. Before new varieties can be confidently launched onto the market, we undergo a rigorous trials process at several international locations.
The development and introduction of our ‘Sports’ series of low-maintenance, healthy Roses growing on their own roots, is an example of our R&D team’s work.
