Dutch gerbera grower strives for ambition and perfection

With a 7.5 ha nursery and 103 types of gerberas, Gerbera United can truly call itself a specialist in gerberas.

In 2009, Willem Peter van den Berg and Dick Kooij decided to merge two companies into one business called: Gerbera United.

Gerbera United currently has 103 different varieties in its range. They focus on two lines: Ambition and Perfection. "Ambition" includes the original, extravagant and special gerberas, the unique species that are not often seen and that is precisely why they belong to Gerbera United. This line includes varieties such as the curled Pasta, the lush Springs and the filled Gerondo. "Perfection" varieties are the true classics that complement the collection. As Gerbera United puts it, the gerberas from the “Perfection” line are pure perfection and available year-round.

A wide variety of Gerberas is grown on the 7.5-hectare site. At the moment, there are two locations where the flowers are grown, and within a very short time a third location will be added. Gerbera United currently produces around 45 million stems a year. A gerbera plant grows for around 3 years and during this period, the plant produces some 100 flowers. In this respect, quality and shelf life are of paramount importance. This includes using biological control in order to ensure that the flowers remain in perfect and healthy condition.
