Lily cultivation continues a rising trend with Dutch Lily Days


The collective presentation of Dutch lily cultivation has secured a fixed position on the international calendar the last few years.

The 7th year starts on Tuesday to Friday, June 6 – 9, and follows the successful formula of previous years with 13 major lily breeders and traders spread over Holland opening their doors to visitors.

Their primary focus is on the new additions, with hundreds of new varieties and especially the growth in the double-blooming segment.

Each year the interest for this event increases from growers worldwide and partly due to the success of the Lily Days, lilies are receiving international promotion.

The official start of the four-day event will be held at Van den Bos Flowerbulbs in Honselersdijk. In total thirteen companies are participating in the 7th Dutch Lily Days, from Tuesday to Friday, June 6 – 9. For the convenience of international visitors, the Dutch Lily Days end just as the Flower Trials begin.

A full report from Steven Vale will be included in ‘The Commercial Greenhouse Grower’ magazine.
