Ethiopia is situated in East-Africa. Many growers are resident here. Ethiopia is close to the equator, which ensures that the days and nights are divided equally into the number of hours per day/night. It’s 12 hours of light and 12 hours dark. Throughout the entire year, the number of light hours per day stays the same. This is why it is not necessary for the roses to have any artificial light. Because of the high light intensity, the roses will get an intense color and a maximum bud size.
Addis Ababa, Africa
Our farm is located in Addis Ababa at a height of 2000 meters. This ensures that the optimal temperatures remain fairly constant throughout the year. At night it is not too cold (8-12 °C) and during the day is not too hot (18-25 °C). All these factors ensure that the nursery uses a lot of natural energy, namely the light and warmth of the sun. Which ensures that the energy consumption remains low and this gives a less environmental impact. Because of the high light intensity, the roses will get an intense color and a maximum bud size.
Our varieties come from the best plant breeders all around the world. The strongest and the most beautiful species are carefully selected. First they are grown in small numbers and tested in the nursery and after that they are all tested in the Netherlands. Only when the new species successfully comes through all the different inspections, will they be grown in large quantities.
