Wholesale center for florists

Apart from the auction, where wholesale exporters buy larger quantities of flowers and plants, there is also a commercial wholesale center for florists who need small amounts of flowers and plants.
We can visit it if you are interested in this part of the flower business.
After the flower auction, we will drive to the eastern part of Holland, to Giethoorn.
