Product Competitions

Participate in Product Competitions at Floriade

The Green House at Floriade will be host of a broad presentation of the Dutch horticulture industry. Additionally, this will be home of the Product Competitions which will be organized in cooperation with Royal Flora Holland, with judging categories like ornamental plant products, including cut flowers, pot plants and bulbous plants but also fresh produce. These competitions are open to external growers and producers.

How does it work?

In the period from April 14 to October 9, the Green House will host 13 competition days, divided among 40 crop groups. Growers of flowers and plants can exhibit their best products in one of the crop groups and have them judged by a specially appointed professional jury. The members of the jury come from both the production corner and from marketing and trade. There will also be public judging. Growers with the three highest jury ratings within a crop group will receive a prize. On each day of competition, the entrant of the most outstanding entry will also be presented with the Floriade Excellence Award.

Programme

The first judging will take place around the time of the opening of Floriade and will involve bulbflowers, spring flowers, flowering shrubs and spring-flowering plants such as potted bulbs and primroses. The final judging will take place on Tuesday, September 27 and will cover Chrysanthemum Disbudded, Hippeastrum and other Autumn flowers and Autumn flowering plants, such as Chrysanthemum plants. The competitions are part of the changing product presentations that head arranger Heleen Valstar of the Green House has in mind. This takes into account the seasons in which products come onto the market.
