Waxed amaryllis bulbs by Wiljo’s are decorated one by one, by hand. This results in the most spectacular creations. They are available in all kinds of different colours and sparkles which makes them a perfect fit with this time of year. Therefore waxed amaryllis are a real must-have for every flower shop.
It all started with pears
In the heart of the Betuwe, Wiljo started waxing pears more than 25 years ago. His passion for waxed pears grew into a big company with a wide range of waxed fruits such as wax apples, ornamental fruits and of course wax amaryllises. Wiljo: “Because our company is located in the middle of all the fruit trees, we’ve always had great access to fresh fruit for waxing. Therefore we got more and more demand for other products like amaryllis for example”.
When you walk into Wiljo’s company, you notice all the different colours. “Our season runs from September to March. In this period we see a number of trend colours passing by. For example, during the Christmas period we work a lot with colours like red, gold, silver and bronze: real Christmas colours”. 70 different colours are ‘warm’ which means that they can be used straight away. “In addition we are decorating our products with different glitters or create a grain or cut effect. The possibilities are endless I would say”.
A good product is the basis
Good relationships with the suppliers are extremely important. Without them, we are nothing. Only if they deliver a good quality product, we have a good basis to work with’. So it all starts with a strong product. Another aspect which Wiljo’s specializes in, is fast delivery. “One of our pillars is ‘ordered before twelve o’clock, delivered the next day’. Everything is freshly made and delivered the next day to our customer. We are very proud of this”.
A small miracle
Wax amaryllises do not need water or any other treatment to bloom. Everything they need to grow into a beautiful flower is already in the bulb. A little love in combination with the magic of nature and your customers will have a fantastic amaryllis in no time. Curious about Wiljo’s waxed products?
