Our flowers and their packaging
Can I buy flowers as a private individual?
No, unfortunately you cannot approach us directly that way. Instead, ask for our flowers from your favourite florist. They are experienced experts and our best ambassadors.
What are the delivery options?
We can deliver your order ourselves, you can pick it up or we can arrange group transport. We are happy to talk through the options with you, and together we can find which option is best suited to your needs.
Do you always have the same offer?
We are able to fully adapt our assortment in line with demand on the market. We know what is popular in the various countries and have a good nose for trends. In addition, we are always mindful of professional quality standards and a good lifespan.
Are your flowers available throughout the year?
Absolutely! Thanks to the most modern growing techniques, our plants continually produce flowers. Each year, we do however replace some of our plants to be able to guarantee the best possible quality.
What flowers are in stock?
In our webshop, you can view our current product offer. You can order flowers online that are still on our plants. Every morning, flowers are offered that will be picked the same day.
How can I place an order?
You can place an order with your favourite wholesaler, flower truck, Euro auction or directly with us. Our webshop is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Do you know exactly where you can find our flowers? Feel free to contact us!
Can you give us any tips for making the most beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements?
Of course! We spend a lot of time with our flowers and we know them inside out. We are happy to inspire you here via our website or social media channels (Instagram & Facebook).
How should gerberas best be used?
Gerberas have many potential uses and because we have so many different varieties in our range, we have a perfect match for every occasion.
On their own: in small vases, it is always good as a table decoration (possibly to be combined with a few other flowers). Be sure to also try a little pastini or piccolini for an original effect.
Opt for a mono-bouquet to achieve a stunning effect in 1 colour or plump for “total loss” instead with an eclectic mix of only gerberas.
A gerbera is often rather a peaceful oasis in an exuberant bouquet thanks to its simple shape. For this application, choose a neutral colour.
The gerbera lends itself perfectly to needlework, but make sure you puncture properly first and cut it neatly
Rather classic or trendy, which means they are also very much at home in floral decorative pieces.
For bridal arrangements, the piccolini is the best choice due to its size and cuteness factor, but its colleagues the germini, pomponi and pastini are also second to none. The immense range of colours will astonish the bride.
Does a gerbera continue to grow?
A gerbera grows a little more each day. Remember that when you want to use it in a bouquet. In addition, it always grows away from the centre of the Earth. The flower will always stand upright when you place it horizontally. Bent flowers will straighten up perfectly again after cutting and being placed in an upright vase.
Do I need to put gerberas on a wire?
It used to be the norm, but as a result of years of research and breeding (read improvement) we always select based on enhanced robustness and lifespan. Iron wire will only cause your flower unnecessary damage. It is only acceptable if the flower needs to maintain a certain curve in an arrangement.
What is the ideal temperature at which they should be kept?
Flowers should be kept at a consistent temperature. Sharp temperature fluctuations in the freshness chain can lead to condensation forming on the flower. At some times of year, this can lead to top rot or brown patches. Humid and relatively hot weather require additional attention. Refrigeration of around 10 to 15°C is ideal.
How long does a gerbera keep?
As we invest in high quality cultivation for our gerberas, they last for at least 14 to 20 days.
What types of packaging are available?
Our sustainable Diamond packaging guarantees that our flowers reach the wholesaler and retailer in prime condition. However, for certain situations sleeve packaging is a better alternative. This means that we always consider which is the solution best suited to each occasion.
Do you breed varieties yourself?
We do not breed ourselves, as that is a separate field. However, we do grow up the plantlets so that they will quickly feel at home with us. We also keep our finger to the pulse as regards the latest interesting varieties from the various breeders, which means that you are always sure to find the most up-to-date range!
How many colours are there?
Gerberas are not called the happy flower for no reason… The various varieties are therefore available in countless colours and shades. In one, two or more colours with light or dark cores constitute the basis for a terrific flower range in your shop. Only a genuinely blue or black gerbera is still not available at this time.
Why such a wide range?
Ever since we first began, we have always believed that every florist must be able to make his or her favourite choice. Tastes differ: tone on tone or bubbly. In addition, tastes also vary from country to country. We select new varieties based on lifespan and quality. Trendsetting colours and shapes are also given a platform with us. The choice is yours...
How many flowers do you grow each year?
A lot… We have a cultivation site of 21,600m2. Each year, it produces over 10 million flowers!
How many varieties of flowers do you distribute?
At Bloemen Dens we have over 100 varieties of gerberas, germinis, piccolinis, pomponis, spiders and pastinis. You can find our current range in our webshop!
