"Netherlands: "Sea climate has favourable effect on amaryllises"
Boers Amaryllis has two locations: one where the bulbs are cultivated and another, where the cut-amaryllises are cultivated. At the bulb-cultivation location, the bulbs go through the entire process to prepare them for cut-flower cultivation. ‘The bulbs are cut into slices for breeding, planted, uprooted and subjected to heat treatments. There is also a station where the bulbs are tested and assessed.’ If the bulbs meet the criteria – upright stems, a good flower and a minimum of four calyxes – they are added to the assortment in another greenhouse.
In response to the question as to what makes the amaryllises from Boers Amaryllises so special, Erik says that the sea has a favorable effect on cultivation in his greenhouse. ‘We are located very close to the sea, which provides a favorable climate. We have milder summers and winters.’ In turn, this affects the heating and cooling of the greenhouse, which is more environmentally friendly. ‘We operate our own water pumps here. We store cold and hot water underground, which we then use for cooling or heating purposes.’
