Peter’s Weekly Menu week 50

Novelties from the Dutch market

written by: Peter van Delft | 08-12-2019

Peter van Delft with Symphoricarpus - Peter's Weekly menu - on Thursd
Check out all the products seen by me, Peter van Delft, on the Aalsmeer market 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.
