During the flower trails we were invited to visit ROOOZ. This event took place at the Horticulture Garden Museum in Aalsmeer. Thirteen growers and eleven breeders presented their current Rose assortment and new varieties.
When you walked through the entrance you saw a sea of Roses. Each Rose has her own beautiful qualities. During the day you could vote on the best Roses in the ROOOZ Contest. A funny little fact: the experts and the consumers both vote. The consumers are more often right, than the Rose experts when it comes to the big successes.
We were invited in the historic auction home to listen to many interesting presentations by growers, breeders and Royal FloraHolland.
When you entered the room not only the beautiful floral arrangement drew your attention, also the old clock from the thirties and it functions perfectly. At the end we played a little auction game, who could press the button the fastest on the given number. A very exciting game!
