Growing flowers in Australia and New Zealand is very rewarding. Because of the temperate climate most flower species can be grown yearround. The increased interaction with Asian cultures has fueled the interest in bolder colours. Home gardening is picked up by young people more and more. With a combined population of over 30 million people Australasia (Australia & New Zealand) is a important market for Syngenta Flowers.
A fast growing market is the home garden vegetables business. Syngenta addresses this with the exciting Vegetalis portfolio.
