PREPARATIONS FOR WOMEN’S DAY AT TULIP GROWER KAAGMAN
It’s almost time for the busiest time of the year: International Women’s Day! During this period the whole flower industry is in turmoil. It is therefore essential to have the right preparations in order to make sure everything is smooth running in this period. International Women’s Day is famous for its Chrysanthemums, Hyacinthus, Mimosa and Tulipas. That’s why we paid a visit to Kaagman, to check out how they grow their beautiful Tulips!
VISIT TO TULIP NURSERY KAAGMAN
The flower nursery Kaagman is not your average flower nursery, because it has a very modern twist. Almost everything in the green houses is automated! This means that the technology keeps track when which Tulip bulb needs to be placed in another part of the greenhouses. This makes the proces more reliable and the quality of the Tulips better.

VARIETIES OF THE TULIP
In the greenhouses all Tulips are water-based, because of the automated process. The assortment of Kaagman is not extremely large in species, because ‘their Tulips’ need to meet up to certain requirements. Not many species make the cut, but when they do, they’re fully taken care of with all the love they need.
