Dümmen Orange, through its Quick Plug division, entered into a sales agreement this week with Colorado-based Dutch Heritage Gardens through the grower’s Royale Botanicals hemp division. The agreement positions both companies at the forefront of the ever-expanding hemp industry. By working together on creating genetics and developing nationwide production, the distribution network allows for premium-quality hemp clones to be grown for CBD extraction.

“We are really excited to work alongside one of the most renowned companies in horticulture,” says Aaron Van Wingerden, President of Dutch Heritage Gardens. “The hemp industry needs leadership and stability. We believe, together, that we can help steer the industry in the right direction. Our long-standing relationship with Dümmen Orange in our flower and bedding plant business makes us optimistic that things will continue evolving in this new and exciting market.”

Dutch Heritage Gardens is one of America’s leading bedding plant growers. The company supplies more than 200 retail locations in Colorado and surrounding states with flowers year-round. Royale Botanicals was founded in 2017 and has been successful in breeding several winning hemp cultivars for CBD biomass extraction. Since its inception, Royale Botanicals has produced and sold more than 10 million hemp clones nationwide.

“This is an incredible development for both sides, as hemp is a great plant with unlimited potential,” says Keith Cable, President of Dümmen Orange North America. “We look forward to a very bright future for hemp clones with widespread use in CBD extraction. Our company’s extensive relationship with Dutch Heritage Gardens makes taking this giant step forward a natural fit.”

Dümmen Orange is the world’s largest breeder and propagator of cut flowers, bulbs, tropical plants, pot plants, bedding plants, and perennials. The new hemp clone initiative with Dutch Heritage Gardens is Dümmen Orange’s first entry into the U.S. hemp industry.
