This private, guided Tour will start at your hotel in Amsterdam at 7.00 a.m. We will drive by car to Aalsmeer, 25 km. South of Amsterdam, where we will pay a visit to the world’s largest flower auction ‘Royal Flora Holland’, which is also the largest trade building in the world.
We will explain about the selling system, the so called ‘Dutch Auction’ and we will be able to see the distribution of flowers and plants.
We will also pay a visit to a wholesale center, where florists from Holland and surrounding countries are able to buy their smaller quantities of flowers, plants and floral supplies.
After the flower auction visit, we will drive to an Orchid nursery where the exclusive and most popular potted houseplant nowadays, the Phalaenopsis Orchid, is being grown. After an introduction we will get a company tour through the greenhouses, which are very high-tech and computerized.
These Phalaenopsis nurseries are amongst the most advanced in horticulture, with sodium lights to promote quality, growing and flowering of the plants.
