FLOOS was founded by Carles J. Fontanillas.

Carles comes from a flower family. In 1925 his family started a flower shop. He is therefore the third generation of florists in his family to continue the story of "Can Fontanillas". He started his journey in flower arrangements at the age of 17, when he was educated at the Catalan schools of flower arrangements. Since then he has trained at seminars with internationally renowned teachers. In 2018 he won the Spanish Cup.

Carles herself has also taught at workshops, seminars and demonstrations in Greece, Romania, France, England, the Netherlands, Scotland, Germany, Uruguay, China, Russia, Belgium, the United States, Spain and Catalonia. Today he has two flower shops, where he works on all kinds of flower decorations.

Carles is the founder, ideologue and promoter of the FLOOS project (2015) and is one of the 'Master Florists' who publishes his designs in books The Crafter's Secrett. vol 01 (2016), The Crafter's Secret. vol 02 (2017), The Crafter's Secret vol 03 (2018) and The Crafter's Secret vol 04 (2019)

Carles is constantly working on new ideas to provide florists worldwide with the most beautiful floral inspiration.

His latest project is therefore FLOOS Live

the most beautiful Amaryllis from Kwekerij Gebr. van der Velden

Nursery Gebr. van Velden

Gebr. Van Velden from 's - Gravenzande has been a leading nursery for the most beautiful Amaryllis bulbs for many years.

The nursery was founded in 1960. Originally vegetables were grown, especially tomatoes, with lettuce and radishes in winter. But later they also started growing Amaryllis and they started to specialize in this.

They grow, propagate and improve amaryllis bulbs for dry sale. Over the years, they have realized a wide range of general bulb varieties, but also exclusive varieties that are only grown exclusively by them.

They also grow some of the amaryllis bulbs in pots. They use beautiful batches of bulbs from their own nursery or from third parties at home and abroad. They only work with the best quality: the pot has a large bulb with many flowers.

And in the spring they grow potted zantedeschias. Here too, the starting material is of good quality: a large tuber from which a plant grows with many shoots and flowers. They use new varieties with strong, bright colors

Roobos wholesaler for flowers and plants: the most beautiful Amaryllis from Kwekerij Gebr. van der Velden

Kwekerij Gebr van der Velden grows the most beautiful Amaryllis, or Hippeastrum in Latin. This bulbous plant from the Amaryllidaceae family, the Narcissus family. The Hippeastrum comes from America, from Northern Argentina to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Some tips to keep this beautiful plant beautiful for as long as possible
- Choose good potting soil for the bulbs in a pot that is at least 4 cm larger from the bulb to the edge of the pot. Amaryllises love soil heat, so there is a great place for these bulbs above the windowsill
- Place the pot in a spot that is as light as possible and at room temperature.
- In the beginning, give a little water so that the soil does not dry out, but that may increase when the buds and leaves start to grow. Never let it dry out, but certainly not soaking wet.
- Sometimes it is wise to use a stick to support the bud. This is especially useful with large-flowered and double-flowered forms.
- If broad green leaves appear from the bulb, the plant now also requires some food in the water every 2 weeks. The more leaves, the better the bloom will be next time. The plant produces 1 new flower stalk for every 2 pairs of leaves. When the night temperature is above 8 degrees (usually at the end of May), the plants can be placed in a sunny spot in the garden. Not in full sun, but certainly not in full shade. Continue to water and feed regularly. The leaves will now continue to grow and in some varieties can be up to 2 meters long.

Nursery Gebr. van der Velden has a wide range of the most beautiful Amaryllises. They have the single and double flowered Amarylises, but also Cybisters and trumpet Amarylises.

the most beautiful roses from Arend Roses

Nursery Arend Roses

Arend Roses has been a leading Dutch rose grower with an excellent reputation for many years.

Nico van der Arend started in 1976 under the name Rose Nursery Van der Arend in Monster, South Holland, out of pure love for roses. After four years, the company was continued in Maasdijk.

Today, Arend roses are grown on eleven hectares, divided over two locations in the Westland. They supply, among other things, Red Eagle®, Avalanche + ® and Pink Avalanche + ®.

They are one of the few growers allowed to carry the certificates MPS-A, MPS-Quality, MPS-Social Quality, MPS-GAP and MPS GRASP. Arend Roses invests intensively in new sustainable techniques in order to deliver the greenest possible product.

At Arend Roses, the latest techniques are combined with employees who understand roses.

To create perfect uniformity in flower bud ripeness, the roses are cut twice a day, seven days a week. This is still traditional handicraft. The roses are immediately placed in water and are in the refrigerator within half an hour. In the processing area, specialized employees carry out a quality check on each (!) Rose. Only roses that meet the quality requirements set by them are fed through the bunching machines. These quality requirements are considerably higher than the requirements of the auctions.

Every year, the Arend Roses range is expanded with a number of special exclusive varieties which are an added value for every florist!

Roobos wholesaler for flowers and plants: the most beautiful roses from Arend Roses

Arend Roses has a wonderful selection of quality roses.

So they have the Red Eagle. A very successful newcomer, thanks to the beautiful bright red color. The bud of Red Eagle® is a voluptuous hourglass that opens into a beautiful round red rose, with slightly curled leaves. The bright red is maintained throughout bloom. Red Eagle® is a highly desirable red rose in all seasons and ideally suited for Christmas arrangements and Valentine's Day.

They also have the Lovelace. This beautiful large-flowered rose is soft pink with a hint of lilac that gives the flower the pure look of a true heritage rose, but with all the qualities of a modern top cut flower. Very romantic and subtle, perfect for bridal work and other special occasions. Lovelace has the extra special feature of a real, authentic rose scent, unique for roses in the top segment and extremely surprising for those who come into their hands with Lovelace +.

And not to forget, they also have the beautiful and popular Black Baccara. The dark red, velvety petals make this rose almost black. This theatrical beauty is one of the darkest roses in the world and perfect for arrangements that call for an eye-catcher with a sense of drama. The bud is full and flowers open wide, with the petals curling slightly. As a result, they catch the light in a special way and the velvety look and texture of the rose comes into its own even better.
