The Holland Dahlia Event 2023 to mark its seventh anniversary this year.
The Holland Dahlia Event marks its seventh anniversary this year. Four companies/venues have confirmed participation in the 3-day event, to be held between 8-10 September 2023.
The 2023 Holland Dahlia Event is a fantastic opportunity for cut flower growers, tuber growers, tuber exporters and service providers to find out about the latest production techniques, marketing and promotion efforts and breeding breakthroughs in the Dutch Dahlia industry.
The Holland Dahlia Event offers export and trading companies the perfect opportunity to choose varieties for their assortments. In the Netherlands, the majority of Dahlias are grown and traded in a region between Leiden and Haarlem; this is also where the leading flower producers, tuber producers and export companies are. The Holland Dahlia Event thus makes it easy to visit more than one of these companies in a single day. The venues open to visitors include:
1 FBT Showtuin/The Tulip Barn
More than 500 Dahlia cultivars in a beautifully designed show garden will steal the show at Facilitair Bedrijf Tuinbouw (FBT) in Hillegom. Dahlia breeders will be at hand to tell more about new cultivars.
2 CNB Showtuin/De Tulperij
Dutch bulb/tuber grower’s cooperative and perennial plant trader CNB has planted more than 600 dahlia cultivars in its show garden at De Tulperij in Voorhout, arguably the largest collection of commercially available varieties.
3 Fred de Meulder Export B.V.
Fred de Meulder Export has become a household name in Dahlias. This export company from Hillegom has been trading in Dahlia tubers since 1898 and sells them to landscapers, webshops and retailers. The company also specialises in supplying professional cut flower producers with Dahlia tubers. The company’s showcase will feature 250 plus Dahlia varieties.
4 Kasteel Keukenhof
The sweeping borders at Keukenhof Castle Gardens will be filled with tried and tested and new varieties of Dahlia. Moreover, sumptuous Dahlia mosaics will provide a burst of late-summer colour. On Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September 2023, visitors can spot these Dahlia mosaics across the Duin and Bollentreek, the epicentre of Dutch flower bulb farming.
