Ad van Marrewijk, BM Roses:
"NL: "We see a move towards large headed pot roses"
Ad van Marrewijk at the Seasonal Trade Fair 2017 at the FloraHolland auction in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands. BM Roses supplies his pot roses via the auction clock and direct to buyers through FloraHolland.
After years of experience in growing cut roses, Van Marrewijk started growing pot roses in 2007. He started with roses in pot size 10.5 cm and added roses in a 12 cm pot size after expanding his 3ha greenhouse to 5ha, 6 years ago. "Growing only 10.5 cm pot roses in a 5 ha is quite a lot. For this reason, we decided to add another pot size; 12 cm and that is where we came in contact with Rosa Eskelund of Roses Forever. The large bud size and shelf life of the roses in the Roses Forever line is what made us choose for this variety. It perfectly fits the demands of our customers in the high end market", says van Marrewijk.

Over the years that followed, van Marrewijk noticed an increasing demand for smaller pot roses with large head sizes and when Roses Forever introduced their large headed mini pot rose, the so-called Infinity line, in 2013, he immediately decided to take a look at this variety in the trial greenhouse of Roses Forever in Denmark and trial this variety in his own greenhouse in Maasland. "I was very pleased with the size of the buds and the shelf life of the plant, which is about three weeks." Currently, BM roses grows four colors and is trialing new colors to add to their assortment.
BM Roses sells the Infinity line under the name Artistique Roze and the Roses Forever 12cm line under the name Beau Monde.
