On nearly 37,000 square meters, grower Amaranthos Flowers Westland and Rieneke van der Houwende grow the 130 amaryllis varieties. They do everything in their power to make sure the floriculture is as sustainable and natural as possible. Old flower bulbs are always reused, unless they are diseased. “Amaryllis is perennial and is fixed for an average of three years. Every January, we change 33 percent of the flower cultivation. The flower bulbs are lifted, sorted, stripped of old roots and planted back in the disinfected beds after a three-week drying period,” says Martin. The nearby tomato farmer delivers heat to the flower bulbs of Amaranthos Flowers Westland, no extra gas is burned. Extra sustainable!
