Amsterdam mayor van der Laan receives 10,000 organic flower bulbs
Jan 2016 - Amsterdam Mayor van der Laan receives 10,000 organic flower bulbs from organic floriculture wholesaler Natural Bulbs, JubHolland and PvdD.
From now on, only organic flowers will be placed in Amsterdam's public spaces. This is a big change from the old-fashioned bulb cultivation currently used. Amsterdam is the first municipality to make this switch. Johnas van Lammeren, leader of the PvdD in Amsterdam, is pleased with this development. He says: "This is a big step forward because no agricultural poisons are used in organic cultivation. We hope more municipalities will follow this example. This could lead to a turnaround in ornamental plant cultivation and rapid growth in the demand and supply of organic, toxin-free bulbs. This will also make organic bulbs easier to buy in flower stalls."
