We can proudly look back at 3 exciting events at VDB

The month of June is in the spirit of flowers and plants in the Netherlands. Three big events were hosted: Dutch Lily Days, FlowerTrials and the GreenTech. Van den Bos took part in all three events! This year we had NEW locations for both our Dutch Lily Days and FlowerTrials displays. We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit us at our wonderful NEW locations.

Dutch Lily Days 2018
It was the annual Dutch Lily Days at Van den Bos Flowerbulbs. This year was extra special since we had a complete new location! We can look back to a really successful edition of the Dutch Lily Days with a greenhouse filled entirely with blooms!
We started the week with healthy smoothies, which were mixed in our very own greenhouse. On Wednesday we served all kinds of delicious coffees, cappuccinos and hot chocolates which were freshly made from of a coffee cart.

Every day we had an extensively buffet serving hot and cold dishes, but Thursday was a really special day because we had a food truck serving Indonesian street food. In addition Peter van Os our Product Manager of callas gave a special calla presentation in the World Horti Center. To end this special Thursday, we offered the ultimate experience in a typical Dutch bar in Amsterdam.

Finally, the week was closed properly with our annual Van den Bos tradition “the happy hour”. We provided typical Dutch snacks, beer and delicious wine.

FlowerTrials 2018
This year we had a very special FlowerTrials® location in the World Horti Center where Van den Bos is located year-round. We showed a special presentation of our latest novelties.
