Statistics Lilium & Gladiolus 2014

Statistics Lilium 2014

It seems the statistics are showing an expansion of 20%, but this is incorrect.

For various varieties incorrect values have been noted for the surfaces, with deviations from 10 – 15%. Also there are varieties of which 10 – 30% is not suitable for export, for the bigger varieties we then speak of 40 to 150 HA.

Reading these statistics require extra attention and if you would like more details per variety, please contact us.

Dutch Lily Days lily week moved forward to June

The 4th edition of the Dutch Lily Days took place in May this year. 16 lily breeders and exporters opened their doors and welcomed international customers and relations. To better serve this important group visitors the organization of Dutch Lily Days have decided to change the date of this annual open house to the 2nd to 5th of June in 2015.
Lily growers from all over the world, large and small, visited the participants greenhouses in Holland to check and compare hundreds of lily varieties. The information obtained is used to decide what varieties to grow in future and how to schedule plantings.
Evaluation remains importantThe evaluation of the Dutch Lily Days in 2014 recently took place. Concusion: lots of visitors were happy and impressed. The 16 participating companies, which simultaneously held their open house, were pleased with the number of visitors.


Quantity and quality of visitors increases
More people have visited the Dutch Lily Days than last year. The participants were particularly positive about the quality of the visit. "You always talk about the quality and quantity of your visitors. Therefore, we are pleased with the Dutch Lily Days on both fronts and across the board". "The cooperation between all participating companies during the Dutch Lily Days becomes more and more entrenched worldwide”.

Fifth anniversaryDutch Lily Days
In 2015, the Dutch Lily Days celebrates its fifth anniversary. VWS hosts the opening ceremony on Tuesday 2nd June with an spectaculair program. VWS also presents their own lily which is named by one of our clients. Special attention is given to the visitors who have already announced to be present. Very important for them is to see more blooming Oriental Hybrid Lilies. This is a very important group of lilies. Several Oriental varieties are late blooming and therefor difficult to show these in bloom late May. "Therefore, the participants have decided to move the Dutch Lily Days to June,"  "In 2015 we will be hosting the Dutch Lily Days during June 2nd and June 5th and we’ll be able to show even more products to our national and international visitors”.
Dutch Lily DaysFlower Trials
By moving the Dutch Lily Days a week ahead, this event will now take place the week before the Flower Trials and makes it easier for international travelers to visit both events. Participants of the fifth edition of the Dutch Lily Days are Van den Bos Flower bulbs, De Jong Lelies, Bot Flowerbulbs, Laan Flora Facilities, Lily Company, Mak Breeding, Marklily, Onings Holland Flowerbulbs, The Originals, C. Steenvoorden, GA Verdegaal, Gebr. Vletter & Den Haan, VWS Flowerbulbs, World Breeding, Zabo Plant and Royal Van Zanten.

Tulips from France...

Tulips from France

For many years VWS Flowerbulbs also grow tulips in France.  This is done under contract with a local grower with whom we are collaborating for many years already. We are continuously  controlling the growing over there. Several times a year we are visiting the fields over there  during the growth to check the quality and the stage. Also samples of the soil are taken several times to guarantee the quality.

When the tulips are flowering we are present with selecting and cutting of the vegetation. After we have seen that the bulbs have grown sufficiently we control the harvesting and arrange the transport to Holland. This will of course be done after a correct treatment and drying period. The cleaning of the bulbs is done in our own warehouse after which the bulbs will be placed in our coldstores after which they can be ordered by the different customers all over the world who can enjoy an earlier flowering bulb than the Dutch bulbs. The only thing that still has be done is washing of the delivered bulbs to be sure that the bulbs are clean without any deviations.

French tulips
Meanwhile the French tulips of crop 2014 have been harvested en cleaned. The quality looks okay of for example the following varieties: Strong Gold, Ile de France, Lalibela, Ad Rem and Clearwater. These are varieties which we already grown in France for a longer time. Like every year the French crop is earlier than the Dutch crop. Also this year the French crop is two weeks earlier.  On the basis of the good quality we can determine that the bulbs have enough capacity for a good flower and that they can flower before Christmas.
