“I got a lot of reactions to the article in The Telegraph”, said supermarket entrepreneur Gerard van den Tweel recently in NYC. He reported in the Stan Huygens Journaal that he was looking for supporters to preserve the Dutch flower tradition in Rome at Easter. “Now enough resources have been raised to keep it going!” he said.
Florist Piet van der Burg from Rodenrijs makes the design for the Dutch floral splendor, which are transported in a refrigerated truck in Rome. The blooming bulbs, plants and cut flowers will be blessed by the Rotterdam bishop before departure from the Keukenhof in Lisse on April 12. Hans van den Hende.
In the eyes of Van den Tweel, our country should not lose this opportunity: ,,This flower tribute is broadcast worldwide on TV. A Netherlands promotion, which other countries are eager to take over!”
