Dutch Lily Days gear up for second edition

Show Greenhouse World Breeding in Breedzand, Netherlands

Sixteen of the most important lily companies in The Netherlands join forces during the Dutch Lily Days from May 22 to May 25. It is will be the second edition on these days. Last year hundreds of visitors attended the open houses given by the lily hybridizers and lily exporters. According to the organizers, it was a unanimous conclusion that the need is great for an event like this. The results were definitely bigger than expected. One participant reflected, “We had visitors from China, Italy, South Africa, Vietnam and Iran in the house at the same time.”
Last year fifteen companies participated. This year, the number has increased to sixteen. These companies are: Van den Bos Flowerbulbs, Bot Flowerbulbs, De Jong Lelies, Laan Flora Facilities, Lily Company, Mak Breeding, Mark Lily, Onings Holland Flowerbulbs, The Originals, C. Steenvoorden, G.A. Verdegaal, Gebr. Vletter & Den Haan, VWS Export – Import or Flowerbulbs, World Breeding, Zabo Plant and Van Zanten Flowerbulbs.
