We have had many people come to us lately to ask us what the latest is about Calla availability currently and also for 2018. As many of you know there has been some large changes in Calla supply and who the players are. With domestic production phasing out and production moved to Holland there are still many uncertainties and questions. One thing we know is that Flamingo has taken position early enough to purchase tubers crop 2017.

Dutch tubers are planted between February 1st and into January of the following year. Over the years we have fine tuned long storage, to do this correctly so that tuber get stored such that it loses little vigor over time. Important is humidity control, air movement and temperature in the room. This has resulted in little to no fall out during the season. We prefer to use the larger sizes for later plantings. So minimum size for fall plantings (Spring flowering) are 18/20 or size 20/22. Read more »

Posted: May 26th 2017 Chilean Crop Update

Chilean Crop photo

In Chile, the Oriental Lily crop is looking very good. We see that in some varieties the bulbs have sized up a bit more than projected, so overall we see good growth. Temperatures have dropped in Chile as temperatures in the US have gone up towards summer. By next month the first Orientals will get lifted out of the ground and we will know more on what to expect. This year's quality control exceeds all others. With the recent investments in a brand new Washing Line for all bulbs going to North America; we are looking forward to this season. Last year, all of our lots and varieties were USDA approved and bringing them into the US was going very well without any problems. Read more »
