Seasons Trade Fair 2018; who wins a German Christmas market weekend?

Thank you for visiting our annual Seasons Trade Fair, the joint product exhibition of Oriental Group, Levoplant, VDE Plant and KP Holland. This fair was organized for the 16th time and this year had an “Oktoberfest-theme”. Among the visitors of this year we raffle a weekend to a German Christmas market. The winner will be announced at the Royal FloraHolland Trade Fair, on Wednesday 7 November, at 9:00 am, at the stand of VDE Plant. We look forward to welcoming you next year during the Seasons Trade Fair, edition 2019.

Developments and inspiration: stand number 30.1

Please visit our stand number 30.1 at the Royal FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer to view our latest developments. You can also visit our stand by appointment to organize your time more efficiently. Of course it is also possible to visit one of our nurseries in the Westland with your customers during these days. Please call or email for an appointment: We hope to welcome you from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 November.

Double or nothing; Rosalina™ Fantasia

During the FlowerTrials in June, we introduced our new double-colored Kalanchoe Rosalina™ series Fantasia. 3 beautiful, richly flowering 2-colored Rosalinas in 12 cm pot. Only available to a very limited extent. Due to your enthusiastic reactions and orders, we have increased production and are happy to be able to meet the ever higher demand. Rosalina™ Don Fabio, Don Feliz and Don Alano are now more widely available. Not yet familiar with this “fantastic” series? Please request your sample plants: Pieter Eijgenraam.

Green is the!

As you know, we specialize in flowering houseplants. But of course the trend in green plants has caught our eye. That is why we took over the 7 cm Eden Collection from Smit nurseries last year around this time. The products that we currently have available in the assortment are:

  • Peperomia Rosso
  • Peperomia Banda
  • Peperomia Pixie
  • Chlorophytum Ocean
  • Fittonia verschaffeltii - Mont Blanc
    In addition, we are testing various new varieties, all in pot size 7 cm, to also strengthen our Miniplants assortment. This green mix collection is trendy and modern, easy to maintain and can be used in any interior. In the spring of 2019 we have a new added value range for you that we would like to show you at the FloraHolland Trade Fair in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands.

Trading places: Profitplant

This time we spoke to Tijmen Renaud, purchaser at Profitplant.
Profitplant is an exporter of pot plants, located at FloraHolland Aalsmeer. The framed first invoice on the wall dates back to 1980, which indicates that this company has been operating successfully for quite some time. The work is being carried out by a team of 16 employees.

Profitplant has a clear opinion and vision when it comes to trading plants. In addition, the company stands for quality. The plants are sold internationally. Both South and Eastern Europe are served. But England is also an important market.

Despite the fact that serious work is being done, there is a lot of fun in the team. Fun alternated with action! Sales, mainly to garden centers and wholesalers, vary from bulk to customization. Even an extensive choice of added value is possible. The goal is ultimately to relieve the customer as much as possible.

“The relationship between Profitplant and KP Holland is very good,” says Tijmen. As a customer of flowering plants they purchase Kalanchoe. This is followed up throughout the year by Spathiphyllum and during the summer months Curcuma. “The attention that KP Holland puts into us as a customer is highly appreciated. This varies from regular visits to interaction via telephone and mail. Agreements that are made are also fulfilled. In addition to the fact that the available product range is wide enough, the quality meets the high requirements set by Profiplant and it is also appreciated that new varieties / products are offered on time. In this way, Profitplant can continue to surprise its customers in time. “Tijmen emphasizes the wish and intention to continue the relationship in this way. “Hopefully this will result in growth in sales.”

KP Holland Breeding: Elite cuttings

KP Holland Kalanchoe cuttings are being sold worldwide. This is often done by locally producing cuttings by a cutting company or by the so-called self-cutters. The start for this local production is always from KP Holland Elite cuttings.

But what are Elite cuttings? Maurits Kooijman, crop manager at KP Holland, is happy to explain it to you. “Elite cuttings are cuttings of selected plants by stem selection, which means that the variety remains pure and also becomes more uniform during the Elite cultivation period.” The Elite cuttings are replaced after 30 weeks of production, which is the only way KP Holland can guarantee strong and healthy starting material for production, domestic and abroad.”

KP Holland Elite cuttings are present in the following countries: Uganda, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Israel, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and China.

For customers of KP Holland who work with Kalanchoë Elite cuttings, Maurits Kooijman has another advice: “Regularly replacing Elite stek and ordering on time is the way to harvest quality, and therefore success.”
