YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE FOR THE FOLLOWING SELECTIONS

Once every month or so, we will post one of our selections in our 'showroom'

Here you will find extra information, like forcing time, flowers per bulb size, length of stem and more

Forcing time is difficult to measure as our greenhouse doesn't have a minimal temperature setting, and therefor the Oriental variety 'Le Reve' is planted as well

Under normal circumstances 'Le Reve' needs about 75 days to flower after planting, so in that regard we can figure out the forcing time of the seedling in our 'Showroom.

In case you want to have additional information about the selection on this page, please send us your question('s) to our page 'Contact Us'

Our Selection for the month of January (2020) is: Oriental Selection# 610

Selection# 610 is another strong lily, that can be grown without any problems.

Even, when planted very big bulbs, we haven't seen any scorch or leave burn.

The fragrance of this yellow variety is so much less compare to a yellow OT, while also the smaller bulb sizes can be used for the cut flower industry

Forcing time is about 100 day and the length of the stem 115 cm or taller

Bulb size 12/14 can give 2 to 3 flowers, which don't fade as you can see

This selection really deserves a place on this page

Our Selection for the month of January (2020) is: Oriental Selection# 144

Selection# 144 is a very strong lily, which can be grown without any problems.

That is not the first impression, but an observation over the years

This hybrid was selected in 2011 in our greenhouse and from that time on it hasn't shown any growth weaknesses or viruses

Before 2011, this lily was 2 years in a flat from seed and an additional 2 years in our field before selected to do the forcing tests in our greenhouse.

That makes the age of this bulb at least 12 years

Forcing time is a bout 90 days and the length of the stem is approximately 125 cm

The size of 12/14 will give at least 2 up to 4 flowers, which don't fade at all

This hybrid deserves a spot on this Page

Our Selection for the month of December is: Oriental Selection# 601

Selection# 601 is a very strong lily, which can be grown without any problem either in the field ot greenhouse

Never any visible scorch or leave burn

Although the forcing time is relatively short - about 83 to 85 days - it still gives a good bud count for smaller sized bulbs

Size 12/14 (cm) can give 3 to 5 flowers on its stem

The length is about 135 cm

This selection deserves to be in our showroom

Our Selection for the month of November is: Oriental Pot Selection# 434

If you talk about fast and safe, you talk about Selection# 434

Already selected in the blooming season of 2014

Every year since that year, it performed the same: Fast, no leaf scorch and a good number od flowers, which did not fade at all.

A beauty on everyone's table

The ones in the picture are forced like the Oriental selections for cut with no growth hormone or the alike

Forcing time about 75 days

Length about 40 - 45 cm

Our opinion is that the bulb size of 12/14 (cm) will give 2 to 3 flowers.

Our Selection for the month of October is: Selection# 512

Selection# 512 was selected in the blooming season of 2015.

The seasons later it did so well again in the greenhouse as it did this year, so we decided to give this lily more attention via this page.

The forcing time is very fast; about the same time as 'Le Reve' ( 75 days)

The length of the stem is about 125 cm and our opinion is that the bulb size of 12/14 (cm) will give 2 to 3 flowers.

This lily is a healthy grower and so far we haven't seen any scorch when the size of the bulb was big

The length of the stem is about 125 cm

Our Selection for the month of September is: Selection# 776

In our opinion, Sel# 776 is one of the best if not the very best white Oriental so far

The forcing time is short, about 8 days later compare to 'Le Reve'

A forcing time of about 83 to 85 days under normal circumstances

This seedling is very elegant and has nice bud color on a stem of about 50"

The bulb size of 12/14 will probably give 2 to 3 flowers

After opening, the flowers stay clean as the pollen stays on the anthers

The fragrance is moderate
