Why did you choose Avalanche+®?
Marc Sassen: “With Avalanche+® I had the certainty of a rose which is easy to grow and offers top quality. We started with the white roses and later added the pastels shades and Avalanche+® spray roses, because we loved them so much ourselves. What struck me then and still strikes me now is the beauty of the rose. Both in bud and during bloom - all the time.”
What do you think when you step into the greenhouse in the morning?
“I have the best job in the world.”
Who did you last cut Avalanche+® roses for yourself?
“For my mother. She’s my honorary tester, because I know that she always treats her flowers the same way. This allows me to see whether the roses live up to their reputation. And they do. Every time.”
How do you most enjoy seeing your roses used?
“In a vase, at the florist or in people’s homes. That’s what growing roses is all about. It’s also a classic ‘to have and to hold’ rose. A slightly riper rose in a heartfelt tribute can also move me. It’s a rewarding flower.”
What is your best Avalanche+® moment?
“When I can make someone else happy with our roses.”
