Neville seeds

A tribute to the father of all modern seed companies, Nevil Schoenmakers. There is something very special about this 3/4 Sativa that those in the know will recognize once they smell the end product. It can be difficult to know what to base your selective reasoning on, but the plants that go longer than 16 weeks indoor will really not be of value in the end to indoor cultivators. A tip for those who do find a long flowering plant they wish to keep.

Indoors you should select anything that goes up until 16 weeks flowering time and kill any others as they are not practical for indoor rooms. The north hemisphere will be difficult for this plant only southern Europe like Italy, Spain, Portugal would allow this plant to finish by December while in the southern hemisphere it will take until June.
Nevil Schoenmakers (1956 – 2019), born in Australia from Dutch parents, left Australia for the Netherlands in 1976. He started growing cannabis in 1978 and soon discovered that the commercially available Thai, Colombian and Nigerian equatorial strains did not perform well in the northern European climate of Holland. He started growing indoors under artificial lighting in 1979, but was not satisfied with the results using equatorial Sativas indoors. Realizing that the solution to the problem was a question of genetics, he decided that the best way to obtain good genetics was to start a seed bank and therefore he had to source and distribute premium Cannabis genetics from all across the world. The idea of breeding cannabis to suit varying conditions was fairly obvious as he had a background as a champion bird breeder, a hobby he started at just 8 years of age. The seed bank he created, then became a company that was named, ‘The Seed Bank of Holland’.

It was during Nevil’s 83/84 collection trips to the US that he aquired, from Sandy Wienstein (who passed in 1987) the only G-13 cuttings to ever leave Sandy’s garden. Nevil returned to Holland and made three crosses with G-13 at the Seed Bank. G-13 x Haze (in catolog only 1 yr, discontinued. Currently Barney’s Seeds), G-13 x Hash Plant (renamed: Mr. Nice. Currently Sensi Seeds), G-13 x Skunk#1 (Last, and according to Nevil, the best of the G crosses. Currently Mr. Nice Seeds).

On June 24, 1990, Nevil Schoenmakers, who legally operated the Seed Bank in Holland, was arrested by the Australian authorities at the behest of the US government while visiting family in Perth. A 44-count indictment was lodged in New Orleans, charging him with the sale of marijuana seeds to undercover agents and indoor growers in the New Orleans area in 1989. After years of legal battles, the charges were ultimately dropped. He could not be extradited from Holland as his activities were legal under Dutch law. In 1991 The Seed Bank was bought by Ben Dronkers, the founder of Sensi Seeds.
