The growing popularity of the number 1 flower
The demand for standard and spray roses has increased significantly over the years. The popularity of the worldwide number 1 cut flower brings a constant challenge for a breeder, grower, trader and florist to keep on innovating and improving the offer. With the 2022 introductions De Ruiter East Africa (DREA) aims to meet the critical demand for quality and innovation for the whole floral chain.
