Frankfurt January 2018
In January was the second edition of Floradecora and this year it was fully integrated in the Christmasworld, situated in the beautiful airy and spacious Galleria . The Floradecora was like a breath of fresh air in the midst of all the warm and seasonal Christmas expositions in the rest of the Messe. The Barendsen stand could be found right at the top of the staircase, and could not be missed. We made a special effort to welcome our visitors in a light and refreshing atmosphere, and created a space full of the most beautiful flowers and plants in green and white colors. Our special Floradecora sofa at the center of the stand was very inviting and Jan de Boer welcomed many old and new friends there!
Lisse, August 2015
Just another example of how Barendsen supports special initiatives. Celosia grower Jan Noordam needed a showcase for his extraordinary flowers and together with Museum De Zwarte Tulp in Lisse we organized the exhibition Celosia Meets Art. The celosia, a work of art in itself, never looked more beautiful!
Essen, January 2018
Our friends of Bloom’s invited us again to join them at the IPM and naturally we were very happy to be a part of their Sonderschau at the IPM in 2018. Instead of bringing a selection of several different flowers we decided to focus on one spectacular flower this year; the Roselily from grower Moerman. This is a new variety, and is especially interesting because it does not have pistils and is less fragrant. Most people love a lily but tend to avoid them because of the pistils that can cause stains and because of the overpowering fragrance. These disadvantages have been bred out of the Roselily making it a perfect flower for everyone to enjoy. The double petals make it an especially beautiful flower!
