The nurseries are busy with harvesting and with the delivery of the Asiatic and LA varieties. The circumstances for harvesting are perfect.
The results look good, but there is a bit more harvest damage than last year. This as a result of the fairly warm weather of the past weeks: during harvest the bulbs have a higher temperature and this makes the slightly damaged spots “soil” more than they normally do. The temperature has dropped since early this week and you can see that there is less damage.
After the LA and Asiatic, the OT and Oriental are next. Not everywhere, but in different areas they will start harvesting next week. If the weather remains good (no frost) the breeders will be ready with harvesting and processing at the end of December.
Trade: Because of the world-wide insecurity, the foreign nurseries are very reserved and the flower prices are under pressure. This has also an influence on the flower trade which leads to low flower prices.
