Herbaceous Perennial Production in Poland
Production of garden perennials is developing rapidly in Poland, because of the introduction of container technology in the early seventies, the development of garden centre chains, the expanding home market, and increasing export opportunities. This paper analyses the author's research into the trends in the Polish herbaceous perennial industry over the past 30 years. More than 2000 species and cultivars are listed by nurseries' lists, but their frequency varies. Production is spread all over the country and was estimated at about 500,000 container plants in the year 1989 increasing to more than 5 million in 2000. There is a potential to increase both the range and production volume further.
