IMPORTANT: NON-AUCTION & SPECIAL DAYS IN 2019
During the non-auction days the OZ Export office will be closed. Royal FloraHolland auctions will not be conducted on these days due to a number of important Dutch Holidays.
OZ EXPORT OFFICE IS CLOSED DURING NON-AUCTION DAYS
Below we have listed all non-auction and special days in December 2018 and in the coming year, 2019:
|Christmas Day||Tuesday||25 December||52|

*Ascension Day this year is after Mother’s Day in the Netherlands (12 May) and Mother’s Day in France (26 May) therefore Royal FloraHolland doesn’t have the need to have auctions on this day.
**Whit Monday falls this year on the day after the French Mother’s Day. Therefore, Royal FloraHolland will not have an auction on this day.
EARLY ROYAL FLORAHOLLAND AUCTIONS in 2019
Given the very positive feedback in 2018, Royal FloraHolland proposes a number of early auction days in 2019. Since the public holidays occur in a favourable pattern, Royal FloraHolland only proposes four early auction days for the coming year.
What does an early auction day mean? During these days the auctions will start an hour earlier than usual. This means also the activities at OZ Export will start earlier. That will affect the following days:
|Day after Easter||Tuesday||23 April||17|
|For Mother’s Day||Monday||6 May||19|
|For French Mother’s Day||Monday||20 May||21|
|After Pentecost||Tuesday||11 June||24|
Please mark these days in your Flower Agenda, so you will not miss out on our beautiful flowers.
