From the 17th of August, the Dutch chrysanthemum grower River Flowers from Gelderland has had to work without its special tailor-made milling machine. That evening, after forcing the entrance door of the nursery, two unwanted visitors took the milling machine together with a small red tractor.

The grower has incurred a loss of more than ten thousand euro and problems with soil treatment in his greenhouse. Meanwhile, a new machine has been ordered, the grower said recently, but that does not alter the fact that he likes to have the culprits found. "The more people that see this message, the better. Who knows whether the machine, which I had specially custom made, was offered to someone else?"
