Lilium crop 2009


In the trade there is little offer left anymore. In the last few months the prices have risen.

The flower-prices in Holland have collapsed in the past 2 weeks, because of the hot summer weather and holidays in Europe. This is a normal phenomenon for this period. Therefore the production is always on a low level in this period.

Lilium crop 2010


Also in the trade for crop 2010 there is little offer in the popular varieties and either the growers are sold out on paper or they wait with offering their remains because now they are fully occupied with other cultivations (
for example tulips) with harvesting and processing or they want to wait the growing of the bulbs.

Until now the stand of the vegetation looks okay. Because of the warm, sunny weather the vegetation is a bit shorter.


The growers relatively had to irrigate more because of the warm dry weather but this has passed without any problems.

Lilium crop 2011


Because crop 2010 is running fast and there is still a lot of demand, the trade has also made a start with buying from crop 2011. The prices are a bit higher than the presale of crop 2010.

Visit Chile july 2010

Visit Chile June/July 2010



The last few weeks we have visited Chile where the bulk of the “CH” lilium bulbs already
are harvested. The circumstances are very different in the three areas where the
breeders have their fields.


Northern area                  65% harvested                 1 breeder

Good growth, good quality. Better results than before, last year was a good

year but now the quality is even better. Sprout development is good.



Middle area                       55% harvested                 2 breeders

The spring was cold, wet and dark this year. The growing season is two weeks longer
than last year, because of the frost which was late this year. April and the first two
weeks of May were warm. In the end that was very helpful for the growth. This
results in a normal harvest. The quantity of the bulbs is good, but mostly in the
smaller sizes. The breeders in the middle area of Chile are breeding LA, OR and OT
and are harvesting slowly right now, because it is still a bit moist over there.



Southern area                  65% harvested                 1 breeder

Also in this area the growth and quality are good. Just like in the northern area, the results are here even better than last year. The southern area of Chile is very wet at this moment. Sprout development is also good here.
