A Great Recipe for Succes - Exclusive Flowers and Florists

Being a one-stop-shop and becoming the market leader in gerberas takes time and effort. It all started at the Gerbera United greenhouses, over 10 years ago. The two growers Dick and WP had a shared vision on the flower industry. Together they made the most successful recipe; it is not only about growing one of the most popular flowers, but they both chose to grow the most exclusive ones. Besides that, they connected and tested the flowers, with what they see as the most important specialists in the field - the florists, from all over the world. Bringing exclusive flowers and uniting them with florists. Hence, Gerbera United.
