“Growing roses is our hobby”
|Timaflor started in 2006 and has 116 ha. Our farm is located on the slopes of mount Kenya at an altitude of 2350 meters. We are only 10 km away from the equator therefore able to produce a constant quality throughout the year. Our maximum temperatures fluctuate between 26 and 24 degrees, our night temperatures between 8 and 12 degrees.|
Our aim is to grow intermediate roses with a head size of 4-5 cm. At the moment we have 30 different varieties aiming at 4 ha each, with an exception of red and white.
Our grower: Altima RFH Nr. 99558
In addition, we started in November 2018 with a new Altima nursery located at 2,550 meters, Altima – a contraction of altitude and Timaflor. A bit higher, but it really makes a difference. You lose on the numbers, but you can consistently deliver heavier quality. Altima consists of 2 phases:
– PH 1 consists of 10 hectares roses planted in 2018 with the following varieties:
Copacabana, Memory Lane!, Red Lion, Athena, Pink Athena and Albatros.
– PH 2 consists of 10 hectares roses and will be planted in 2019, the varieties will be announced later.
All our flowers from Timaflor are sold daily on the clocks 11,12 and 13 in Royal FloraHolland Aalsmeer and all the flowers from Altima are sold exclusively via the clock of Royal FloraHolland Rijnsburg.
Fresco Flowers our sole agent takes care of everything as soon the flowers have landed.
We are of course the proud employer of 1700 people and have great respect for the environment.
