We continue our conversation with Alexander Kordes and Thomas Proll on the Kordes family of roses. Chris Pellet of Newflora roses joins the conversation as we begin to chat about the roses offered by Kordes in the United States.
Today we begin a two part series on the Kordes family of roses. For over five generations the Kordes family has been producing some of the worlds greatest roses. On this broadcast, Alexander Kordes and Thomas Proll chat with us about the history of the Kordes family and about their hybridizing process including their decision over 25 years ago to stop spraying fungicide on their roses. It's a fascinating look into a centuries old family business.
