Two Dutch flower nurseries now grow Callas together

Germinis grew in Klondike Gardens' one greenhouse in the Netherlands until late June. Thanks to a collaboration between Klondike Gardens and De Boer Calla & Hydrangea, those are making way for a different crop - large Calla cut flowers. The cultivation systems were prepared for production over the summer.

Rob de Boer: "We got to talking exactly a year ago. I was looking for a larger, more modern cultivation location to grow my Callas. I also wanted to work with other entrepreneurs. I think sparring and doing business together offers many advantages. I already knew Tom van Leeuwen through school, which made starting the conversation easier. That led to this: a greenhouse full of large-flowered Callas, of which the first has already been harvested."

"We're extremely excited about this collaboration," says Tom. "Since we have a joint interest in De Boer Calla's, this nursery is taking a different course. That's possible thanks to De Boer's knowledge, expertise, and trusted customer base. We ensure the Callas are available on important holidays, like Thanksgiving and All Saints Day."

"That was already the case at De Boer's nursery. The largest variety we grow is the white Captain Ventura; the other varieties change with the seasons. Currently, we're picking Captain Ventura, Captain Odeon, Carrera, and White Horse. A few more varieties will be added in mid-October until Christmas," Tom concludes.

Klondike Gardens will keep producing a wide range of Geminis at its second location. De Boer Calla's will keep growing Callas and bicolored Sunsation cut hydrangea Sunsation at its nursery.
