Our mother company, Van den Bos is growing Freesia corms in New Zealand to provide fresh quality Freesia corms starting August 2012. Last week, our Freesia expert visited the Freesia fields in New-Zealand. The crops are looking great, weather conditions are very good and the roots are snow white and core sound. The growing will continue for the next couple of months in good condition.
