Growers are passionate about producing the most beautiful and highest quality flowers, foliage, and ornamental plants. Floriculture, or flower farming, is the discipline of horticulture concerned with cultivating flowers and ornamental plants for gardens, floristry, and supermarket bouquets. Innovation and development, via plant breeding, creates a constant stream of new varieties and colors of plants and flowers, which are important in setting fashion trends.
Growers Impact Community
Sustainability is more than a few eco-friendly best practices. Floriculture benefits from growing beautiful flowers, as well as from the human quality and positive social impact farming has on family. Growers impact community.
Growers and Flowers of the World
Growing flowers and plants is a competitive and international industry. Western Europe, the United States, and Japan are the world’s largest markets for flowers, but major production of flowers happens elsewhere. Holland is the biggest flower producer, but ideal year round climate conditions for growing have positioned Colombia, Ecuador, and Kenya as leading growers and exporters of fresh cut flowers.
Crops including cut flowers, potted flowering plants, foliage plants, potted herbaceous perennials, annual bedding/garden plants, cut cultivated greens, and propagative floriculture material are grown by specialized growers.
Seasonal Locally Grown
Valentine’s Day is the global flower industry’s Christmas. Valentine’s Day is the biggest day of the year for flower and plant sales, gift giving for their loved ones. Ornamental plants and flowers are also the most popular gifts year round.
The proverbial bloom is not nearly off the rose when it comes to the Dutch floral industry. The Netherlands is the top exporter of flowers in the world. Holland flower growers are by far ahead of any other flower producing region in the world. The Dutch countryside is dotted with large greenhouses used for breeding and growing flowers and ornamental plants.
In Holland flowers and plants are traded in huge buildings that house the biggest floral marketplace in the world. The Dutch flower auctions are a symbol of efficient perishable trading and technological innovation. The cooperative FloraHolland in Aalsmeer is the largest flower and plant marketplace in the world.
Flowers are dynamic and the trade flow of imports and exports of floral products is a worldwide affair with South American flower growers in Colombia and Ecuador playing an every increasing role in perishable supplies.
The floriculture industry has flourished and the business of growing fresh cut flowers and ornamental plants has evolved worldwide into a sustainable model for economic growth and prosperity in developing countries.
