*News from the bulbfields

Crop information.

Autumn 2010 was characterized by heavy rainfall and flooding in some areas.
It was therefore very difficult for growers to harvest the bulbs.
In late November the next problem occurred: frost and snow.
The result is that there are shortages in almost all products and prices rise rapidly

 

More in detail:
Gladiolus: The bulbs are of good quality, but the crop results are less per hectare than other years because of the bad growing season and the early frost. As you may know, there were also fewer acres planted this year.
Lilium: Shortages in all sizes, especially in larger sizes and overall 15-20 % less bulbs available. The quality is very good.
Dahlia's are also a problem, the prices are going up (early frost in Holland)

Perennials: Average crop but harvest is difficult. No good estimation can be given at this moment.

Conclusion and consequences:
We will keep the prices for order\delivery date 1 and 2 but......
it is likely that we have to increase the prices soon.

*Football/Russia

We congratulate our Russian friends for winning the right to host the 2018 football World Cup.
We are sure, you will organise a great tournament.

However: The Netherlands will take revenge by winning the Worldcup.............
