    Gerbera

    The large-headed gerbera is a splash of colour that is suitable for all occasions.

    This classic among classics is quite rightly the eye-catcher in every bouquet. It commands respect through its large diameter and is relaxing on the eye. This colourful flower certainly deserves its place both in a classic composition and in a trendy wild bouquet. We also make sure that its beautiful leaves are always nicely in the fold, so that they are able to shine through in your arrangements.

     

    Gerberas are categorised by shape and appearance. The dark and light cores largely determine their character - from charmer and self-obsessed to tough madam and teddy bear.

    With expertise

    The pick-me-up in every bouquet, a gerbera will never disappoint.

    Neat tone on tone or much more “out there”, even outrageous… the result will depend purely on what the customer is looking for. I want to reflect the customer's intentions as accurately as possible in my floristry. The huge colour pallet of the gerbera certainly helps me in this respect. And a happy customer also means a happy florist!

    Germini

    The germini is the little sister of the large-headed gerbera and one of the showpieces of our range.

    Since the very beginning, we have strived to have a large assortment of germinis. Alongside the classics that are not to be sneezed at, we also give the very newest and most promising varieties a clear platform. In this way, wholesalers continually expand their range and they arouse the curiosity of their customers.  

     

    Germinis are ideal for mixed bouquets, but can also be used in mono-bouquets. Sooner or later, everyone will be seduced by the charms of the always fresh-looking and colourful germinis. Available in one, two or more colours…  Let them win your heart! Speaking of hearts, our germinis even have a fresh yellow-green or velvet black heart (or core).

    Pomponi

    With its elegant round shapes, the pomponi is a guaranteed hit in every arrangement.

    Pomponis stand out due to their spherical shape. Their cores are hidden away behind an additional quantity of leaves. In a modest and pleasant manner, they give extra texture and depth to every arrangement.

     

    With their bubbly colour, they are a real visual treat and also have extreme cuddleability. They are therefore without doubt a chart-topper in the extensive range of the Dens family!

    Pastini

    The pastini rolls nicely off the tongue, rather like the curl of its colourful leaves.

    This relatively new species is rapidly conquering the hearts of many a florist. This is logical enough, since it is without precedent in the world of the gerbera. With its vibrant colours and distinctive curls, pastinis are a joy to behold. We also have a whole series of exclusive house varieties.  

     

    With a pastini you will - almost literally - bring the sun into your home; the curly leaves are virtually indistinguishable from the sun's rays themselves. And shining is certainly something that this stylish flower will do!

    Spider

    The spider is the plucky bird among the gerberas, and gives every bouquet a healthy injection of spirit.

    With its prickly leaves and a hint of wildness, perhaps a little irritable, but in actual fact it is no less cuddly than other gerbera types. It has something of the “bad girl” look, but with a heart of gingerbread. And the velvety core of the flower itself also looks insanely beautiful! 

     

    The spider immediately catches the eye. And its wildly cropped leaves allow for a wide range of applications, above all in wild, trendy bouquets. It also flourishes in the presence of other flowers and has quickly become a trendsetter as an unmissable element in every arrangement that could use a little backbone.

    Piccolini

    The tiny piccolini is very sweet, charming and a versatile companion to any imaginative florist.

    The piccolini - meaning “little ones” in Italian - is certainly worthy of its name. Small in stature but not in deeds, this flower will not disappoint. That is what makes this little sweetheart the cutest shoot at Bloemen Dens. 

     

    Since a short stature also offers such a large number of possibilities, the piccolini is extremely versatile. It provides class and finesse as a table decoration and for small flower arrangements. Why not also try it as a stunning bridal bouquet or corsage? It is the trusty ally of many a creative florist who appreciates its long life!

Our process

In our loving, expert hands, how do we turn a plant into a gorgeous flower?

Life starts with a small plant

When is it time to pick a flower?

When a flower is ripe for picking depends on the variety and the season. The presence of a few or more stamens is the most decisive factor. When a flower is picked too young, its lifespan is reduced. The art is to do it at precisely the right time… And our team is trained to do just that!

Information: the heart of the gerbera

Only when we can see that here is at least one ring will our experienced picker harvest the flower, by hand.

Quirks of nature

Fine pre-treatment

After our flowers have undergone a strict selection process, they can enjoy fresh water with pre-treatment agent. This is to make sure a solid foundation is laid for a long lifespan. For this reason, we recommend specially adapted cut flower food further on in the chain.

Wellness for gerberas

Invisible but not a superfluous luxury, this pre-treatment bath. Automatic and correctly dosed. This results in stronger and longer lasting gerberas.

Life starts with a small plant

Plants that are still delicate and fragile are received with love at Bloemen Dens and surrounded with the best possible care, from seed to bloom. Mild temperatures, the best adapted food and extra light in the greenhouse mean that these plantlets will quickly feel at home. In the space of about 10 weeks, they can grow into strong plants that will produce the most captivating flowers for the next 2 years. 

Information: Temperature for gerberas

Temperature for gerberas: Refrigeration of around 10 to 15°C is perfect for gerberas. It cannot be much colder than that, otherwise the sap stream will stop.

Quirks of nature

The flowers are selected and picked by hand. The “bad girls” among the gerberas are thrown out under the watchful eye of our staff. We always strive for a consistent ensemble, but the quirks of nature can get the better of us sometimes…

Inspected and found to be OK

Stem length, flower diameter, right colour, flower structure, ripeness, ... Our flowers have to pass this exam flawlessly before they are allowed in our packaging.

Fine pre-treatment

Want to make a parcel?

Because we want only the best for our flowers, we are happy to transport them in style, but at the same time we also want to make sure that they are always protected. With this in mind, we designed the Diamond Box (2001). The raised sides protect the flowers better and the plastic sleeve prevents desiccation in a refrigerator. A splash collar is put in place to prevent the flowers suffering any possible water damage during transport. 

Information: Customised packaging

The choice of all packaging used depends on the variety and the destination. We are happy to listen to your concerns and individual wishes…

SUSTAINABILITY

At Dens we care about nature – that is why we work every day using products from Mother Earth. This is also the reason we use an integrated cultivation approach. This means that we work as much as possible with sustainable materials so that we and in future also other generations are able to pluck the fruits of our planet.

Energy

Energy is also a hot topic for us. Thanks to gas-powered co-generation, electricity and heat are generated at the same time. In this way, the greenhouse is sustainably heated and lit, and after purification fumes are used as CO² fertiliser to make the gerberas strong and give them a larger diameter. The unused electricity is then sent back to the electricity grid.

Pest control

Gerberas are a favourite host for many insects. For this reason, thanks to our integrated policy, we introduce their natural enemies to maintain a balance between good and bad insects. Only in extreme cases do we use mild chemical agents. Maintaining this delicate balance requires a great deal of accuracy and expertise, but fortunately we have the ideal man for the job here… Michel.

Packaging

By using recycled material, the environmental impact of our packaging is kept to a minimum. Unbleached fully recyclable cardboard is used for the packaging. This provides our flowers with optimum protection during transport and they also have the smallest possible ecological footprint.

Work conditions

Our staff also deserve their place in the spotlight. Without their good care on a daily basis, we would not be able to enjoy these wonders of nature. We therefore ensure that they are able to work in a healthy, safe environment. Respect for humanity and the environment is fundamental in an ethical company story.

Lighting

To the extent possible, we use the greatest natural light source, the sun, but sometimes we have to use our own little suns in our glass sky. We do however make sure that our lamps are installed in an efficient and energy-saving way. 

Food

To grow strong flowers, they need a balanced diet. The right food doses are measured by computer. 

Pre-treatment

Wherever possible, we use natural foods and we reuse water as much as we can. Flowers are pre-treated so that the consumer can enjoy them for as long as possible. 

Recirculation

The excess (drain)water is collected so that it can be reused after UV disinfection. After blending with rainwater, pH and EC are brought back into line so that it can be reused as feed water.

Feel free to ask for our assortment of gerberas.
