Why did you choose Avalanche+®?
Olaf van Vuuren: “There was no doubt or hesitation, I simply had to have such a beautiful rose in my greenhouse. That was over 12 years ago, which says something about how pleased I am with Avalanche®.”
What do you think when you step into the greenhouse in the morning?
“I am always proud, but also curious to see how the roses are doing. My trusty ritual is to walk around and check everything. I like looking at the roses. It’s a great start to the day.”
Who did you last cut Avalanche+® roses for yourself?
“For my wife. For the past 12 years she’s been getting them once a fortnight, because they really do last that long. She never gets bored of Avalanche+®.”
How do you most enjoy seeing your roses used?
“I enjoy it when they appear on television or in a magazine, but I also like seeing them at the florist. After all, that’s why I grow roses: to supply a beautiful flower that other people also enjoy.”
What is your best Avalanche+® moment?
“As an Avalanche+® grower you work with nature, which is never dull. That big, full bud that’s just opening, with all the promise that it contains - fabulous.”
