written by: Peter van Delft | 08-02-2021

Check out all the Valentine flowers in Aalsmeer seen by me, Peter van Delft, on the markets in the Netherlands, the world’s largest display of flowers and plants.

Every day I look around at trader Barendsen Flowers at the Royal Flora Holland Aalsmeer, the world’s largest flower auction. With an auction of around 34,5 million flowers and plants a day, I like to spot novelties and special products that are new and/or just coming in production.
This week, number 6, we are heading towards Valentine. So, no red roses!  I start with the toppings from Vip Roses
