Start of registration for summer flowers inspection22 August 2016
Registration for the inspection conducted during the Naaldwijk Summer Flowers Exhibition is still possible until the end of the day on 28 August 2016.
In just a short while, the 31st National Summer Flower Exhibition (Nationale Zomerbloemententoonstelling, NZBT) will be held in the heart of the Westland region. From Thursday to Sunday, 8 - 11 September 2016, Naaldwijk hosts the most important national presentation of summer flowers, which is built around the summer flowers inspection, the NZBT- inspection. The theme this year is: 'Holland's Glory', and a spotlight will be turned on hydrangea as the focus of that theme.
Important criteria for the NZBT-inspection are equal lengths of the stems, uniformity of the flowers and the correct stage of maturity. During the inspection, the flower buds must be opened for single-flowered varieties, while at least one-third of the flowers present must be fully flowering for the double-bloomed varieties.
There's a new addition to the inspection this year: the My Florist Award from the VBW (Vereniging Bloemist Winkeliers; Association of Florists) for the most distinctive product in the exhibition. This complements the Master Grower Award for the highest-quality product and the VGB Award from the Vereniging van Groothandelaren in Bloemisterijproducten (Association of Wholesalers in Flower Nursery Products) for the most distinctive wholesale product in the exhibition, which are the other prizes to be won.
