"Netherlands: "More than 100 buyers at rose event ROOOZ"

ROOOZ is a rose event that is organised by three rose growers; Zuurbier & Co., VP Group and Rosa Plaza|AQ Roses. During ROOOZ, various hybridizers presented their newest cut roses and growers presented their current range of roses. Wednesday 17 June, the first of a total of five days, was exclusively for buyers and sellers. On the following two days, the event was thrown open to traders and at the weekend, anyone who was interested could come and have a look.

Wout Oor was one of the participants from Olij Rozen, he states: "There were a lot of visitors: more than 100 buyers came to the event and also on the other days, there was high footfall." For visitors, there were various activities organised. People could take part in a rose auction on the traditional, hundred year old clock and could also vote on the most beautiful rose. The winner received the ROOOZ Trophy. "I was in the nominations," said Wout, "but unfortunately, it didn't happen. Piet Leegwater from Kwekerij Wesseling took the honours."

ROOOZ is, in some sense of the word, not new, because in the past there was a similar event organised at De Broekerveiling. Unfortunately that event slowly died out, but now it has been started again. "The Historic Garden in Aalsmeer is right here - a place with lots of history, bound up with flowers and of course, the rose."
