Manager of Marketing & Business Development Rob van der Helm said, "Last year we had a great success with one variety as best in class and 7 ribbons. This year, we are very happy with even two varieties that are best in class. Our breeding efforts paid off, and we are sure that we will surprise you again next year with new flowers that will steal the show."
