 Harvest 2010

After a cold winter and an equally cold spring the harvest of tulip started pretty late. Approx. 10 days later compare to last year.
Meanwhile almost all tulips have been harvested and the results shows a normal image.
However the quality seems to be excellent.
The  harvest of daffodils and hyacinths is still going on. Crocuses are scarce and prices go rapidly up.
Because of the late harvest, our packing period is shorter than usual.
However, we see it as a challenge to ship all the orders on time and complete.
Because we rotate shifts we can produce 20 hours a day- 6 days a week.
Up to now our shipments  are on schedule and we do our utmost to continue !
