Last hours Trade Fair

Cultivation going fine, but lots of uncertainty

Just a few more hours and the Trade Fair will be over. There's this double feeling of party on the one hand and serious (financial) worries on the other: not only are a number of parties missing, there are also people present who already know that they will not register for next year's edition.

We won't dwell on the fact that everyone got out of it what they expected and hoped for. An extensive photo report will be posted here on Monday.

The Superb, a line of pot agapanthus from our own breeding program, is characterized by many buds. From week 14, John Zuidgeest and Nick Duijvestijn will have the plants available and in order not to forget that, regular customers will receive an alarm clock. It is pre-programmed for Monday morning, April 3, so it will go off, inevitably and deafeningly. 

Iris Schouten and Joeri van Klink of Klaver Flowers, which, in addition to lilies in Heerhugowaard, has been growing gypsum in Ethiopia for about 15 years and - and this is a novelty - since this year has also added limonium to its range. 

Jan van Wijk of Kwekerij Waalzicht, which grows a wide assortment of lisianthus in the Bommelerwaard, is proud of his new Fiat Panda.
