The Christmas season already starts in October at cut green nursery Andromeda, located about 20 km south of Amsterdam. The nursery is like a park with conifers in all kinds of structures and colours. The growers Wim Steman, Peter van de Rijdt and employees cut the Christmas greenery for the florists of Europe.
The rest of the year they stay in the Christmas mood.
They search all over the world for new conifer varieties, which can give Christmas decorations a special appearance.
Over the years an nice range of specialties grew. Like for example the impressive uprising Cephalotaxus or the pendulous threads of the Filifera.
The quality needs to be of the highest level. That’s why the trees are being looked after well and trees get good light because they stand wide apart. The soil in Loosdrecht is good for conifers. It is sand and peat with groundwater at the right level.
The big flower auctions are relatively nearby and logistics to western Europe is well organised. Andromeda does not supply the auction clock, but delivers directly to their customers, the preferred trading partners. Andromeda wants their customers to be market leader with Christmas greenery in their market segment. They get top quality product and a perfect connection in logistics, administration and marketing.
Andromeda can also provide inspiration about new possibilities and new products. For this reason Andromeda every years asks a top florist to create trend decorations with the greenery varieties. The trading partners pass on these qualities and inspiration to florists, so florists can surprise the customers with beautiful and innovative decorations.
