NL: Special Orchids takes over Celine Colours

For most cut Cymbidium growers in the Netherlands, the season runs from September to May. Special Orchids has been used to harvesting their flowers during these months, but from 1 December this is going to change. "With the acquisition of Celine Colours, we will be able to supply our customers year round, starting 2018," according to John and Wim Bos.

Paul and Esther van Schie of Celine Colours (right) hand over their nursery to Wim (left) and John Bos of Special Orchids with effect from 1 December.

Special Orchids is specialized in the cultivation of large-flowered cut Cymbidiums, just like their colleague Celine Colours from Berkel en Rodenrijs. Paul and Esther van Schie built this nursery, which bears the name of their daughter and since 1992 they cultivate outside the traditional season. "That makes it so valuable to us," says Wim. "The modern nursery located at the J. Poortmanweg in Berkel en Rodenrijs is fully equipped to deliver Cymbidiums to the market from May through to November."

Sharing knowledge
"It obviously requires the necessary expertise to get the plants to blossom in the summer months and early autumn. We are therefore pleased that Paul is guiding the take-over and will be sharing his knowledge and experience in the coming period."

Paul van Schie (m) of Celine Colours transfers his company to Wim (l) and John Bos of Special Orchids, under the supervision of business advisor Arthur Vijverberg(r) of Yeald.
