J.H. van der Vossen B.V. is the European grower for the potted Glaminis. They have been growing the Glamini for over seven years with numbers increasing every year, mainly due to many larger orders for sales across Europe.

The Lachenalia bulbs are grown in the Cape area of South-Africa by subcontractors under the supervision of Vosbol. Since South-Africa is the Lachenalias country of origin the growing conditions are best. This makes sure we get the highest quality bulbs.

The Lachelia bulbs are also cleaned, dried and prepared for shipping in South-Africa. The bulbs are then transported to The Netherlands, where they ondergo preparation. This is done in a way that it provides the best quality and equality in flowering period.

The current cultivars are the result of years of improvement. Because of this, these cultivars are protected. The Lachenalias are sold under the African Beauty trademark. In our search for even better cultivars with different growingproperties or colorschemes the improvements continue. The bulbs can be used at any time in year. But we have to know on forehand, so we can optimize the preparation.

As you can see we are involved from beginning to end. This is just our continuous pursuit for quality.

The rooibos (literally red-bush) are grown in the Cape area of South-Africa by Nieuwoudtville Rooibos (PTY) Ltd. This company takes part in the rooibos tea project which is an initiative of the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development together with the rooibos tea producers.

Since rooibos is an indigenous plant endemic to the Cape, we are assured in getting only the highest natural quality.
