About growers' association Partners

In the 1970’s and 80’s our plant breeder, Tjeerd Dijkstra from Beetgummermolen in Friesland, worked as a sales representative in flowerbulbs. In those days he worked mainly in Italy which at the time was an important market for gladioli. Tjeerd became concerned that the present assortment needed to be renewed and the choice broadened, so he decided to start breeding new sorts of gladioli himself. In the last few years the focus has been on developing ruffle flowered gladioli and gladioli with low light requirements.

Since 1995, AP. Groot Bloembollen BV in Hem have been linked to Tjeerd Dijkstra in order to ensure the propagation, processing and sales of the new breeds.
