Flower auction

Flower auction

We will meet you at your hotel at 7.00 a.m.

On this private tour, we will first drive by car to Aalsmeer, where flower auction 'Royal Flora Holland' is located, some 35 minutes driving.
This flower auction is the second largest building in the world with over 16 million sq.feet of build floor area.
On 17 'clocks' the flowers and plants are being sold 5 days a week.
We will visit coolstore, where Hydrangea cut flowers are stored at night, before auctioning starts. 
After that, we will take a look at the huge flower distribution zone, where cut flowers are being distributed to all buyers/wholesale exporters.
We can pay a visit to a  wholesale company that sells small quantities to separate florists who are not able to buy the large quantities that are offered at the auction.
Here they can buy floral pottery, supplies and cut flowers and plants.
After the visit, we will start visiting Hydrangea cut flower growers.



In week 24 of 2023, during 'Flower Trials' week, we will be able to visit the 'Open House' of the important breeders of Hydrangea in Holland. The best days are Tuesday 13- Friday 16 of June. 


Cut flower growers

During June, July, August, September and October, Hydrangea is a big cut flower item in the cut flower market, so we will be able to visit Hydrangea cut flower growers to see the crops and flowers growing in the greenhouses.
