Orchids developments on show

Dutch orchid growers are responding to urban jungle and organic trends.

Thirteeen orchid growers from three separate regions in the Netherlands are uniting to organise the Orchid Inspiration Days together from 6 to 13 June 2017.

Exporters and end-customers can visit 13 growers on six days across two weeks to see the latest varieties and concepts. 

Growers involved: Aphrodite Orchidee, GreenBalanZ, Van der Hoorn Orchideeën, Orchids4all, Cympha Orchideeën, Pannekoek Orchideeën, Stolk Flora, De Vreede Holland, Lansbergen Orchideeën, Levoplant, OK Plant, Opti-flor, Piet Vijverberg

Stolk are promoting their orchids as organic.

And ’t Nieuw Bos is capitalising on the urban jungle trend by delivering their "ultra-strong" Phalaenopsis without support sticks via their new brand: Original Orchids. This provides the plant an "unconstrained, exuberant and natural look".

The plant has an H2Obloom pot with water stick included, and is protected against ethylene as well. This ensures that it is provided with sufficient water and that it is resistant against harmful influences emanating from the fruit bowl. Original Orchids are available with 3, 4 or 5 strong flower stems.

The nursery will launch the plants at Royal FloraHolland Trade Fair at Aalsmeer (2-4 November 2016).

Also at the show will be Fleurostar winner Begonia Miss Malibu, from Dümmen Orange and Begonia Senator Rose Bicolor from Sakata.

Together with Lupinus Mini Gallery Blue from H.M. Clause and Penstemon Twizzle Scarlet from Van Hemert & Co, this begonia was awarded with a 2017 gold medal.

According To Edwards ... Why horticulture needs a different dialogue to farming

The Government will always look on "horticulture" as a sector within "agriculture" and, when the trade effectively gets its message across, the Government recognises "nursery stock" as a non-edible subset of horticulture.
