Grower of the week! G. de Wit & Zn

Despite the winter it’s spring this week at G-Fresh. Grower of the week is G de Wit & zn with Hyacinths!
The nursery is a family company owned by family the Wit and specialised in Hyacinths as a cut flower! Their season starts at December and continue until half of May. Normally, the hyacinths flower in March, but the growers prepare the bulbs in such a way that they think it’s spring in December.
The fields of de Wit are nearby the Keukenhof, a famous area in Holland during springtime.
The flowers are carefully select and only the best are good enough. Did you know that a part of the bulb has to stay attached to the stems? Otherwise the hyacinth will not flower.
