Wans Roses - The Rose Specialist From Germany
Wans Roses has been producing cut roses since 1975. At that time, roses were one of the various cut flowers available from the farm but in 2001 they switched their focus completely to growing stunning and excellent cut rose varieties under glass. They specialized even further in 2011, by adding more special roses, especially varieties with the appearance of the classic English garden rose. Their portfolio currently consists of 32 rose varieties, all of which are characterized by particularly good quality and durability.
Growing High-Quality Cut Roses
The production of their cut roses takes place in Germany in the Niederrhein region in a modern greenhouse of 42,500m². During the cultivation period of approximately 5 years, the rose plants grow in a special coconut substrate on culture channels, which facilitates harvesting work. Every day, thousands of Wans Roses' products are auctioned at the Veiling Rhein-Maas in Germany and at Flora Holland in the Netherlands. With up to 5.6 million roses being distributed per year, Wans Roses are widely available to wholesalers and florists throughout Europe and beyond.
Sustainable and CO2-Neutral Production of Premium Roses
Wans Roses stands for sustainable and CO2-neutral production of their premium cut roses that are grown to celebrate special occasions in life. Sustainability in the production of consumer goods has more and more relevance in the last few years for both the trade as well as for end-consumers. Even in horticulture, this development does not stop and increases in importance. Wans Roses participates in the sustainability movement by constantly evaluating and improving their production processes, from energy supply and plant protection to wastewater recycling and ecological packaging.
