HortiTrends News Weekly and Comment - Time to travel - September Means Four Oaks, Saltex & Glee - August 26th

We are busy preparing for the many trade-shows that will take place in September and October including the Four Oaks, Saltex and Glee. With Saltex moving to the NEC in Birmingham next year, it will be the last chance to visit it in the wonderful setting of the Windsor Racecourse outside London. Its one of my favourite shows to visit, due to the practical nature of the machinery demonstrations that they put on alomng with the tree climbing trials etc. Somebody in Saltex's head-office has decided that a re-invention of the show was needed and so picked a grassless/treeless site that will just annoy and alienate its core audience even further. Glee itself is also in a perpetual relaunch mode and try's to market itself as all things to everyone with little success. No end of markekting tricks but very little substance when it comes to communicating with its core garden retail audience. The Four Oaks on the other hand does what it say's on the tin. See you there.

Organic Eggs Are More Than Free-Range!

Organic egg producers are in a flap over an European Commission rule on egg packaging that prevents them from labelling their eggs as both organic and free range. All organic egg producers operate free-range enterprises but they fear that if the carton does not say "free range", consumers will assume they are not free range.

Horticulture in Politics - Docklands Must Allow Residents To Interact with Their Environment Through Horticulture

Simon Coveney (Minister, Department of Agriculture, the Marine and Food; Cork South Central, Fine Gael)
The increases will be from 50 to 200 and 100 to 250, respectively. We treed to take into account that some smaller boats lost more pots than large boats, a point Deputy Ferris and a number of others made in the Dáil. As a result, we quadrupled the limit for smaller vessels from 50 to 200 and increased the figure for larger boats slightly more than twofold, from 100 to 250. All those who applied to the scheme, which was a relatively small number, can qualify for compensation for more pots provided they have the data required.
