1.2 million roses per week!

At Mood Flowers we love to travel to get inspiration for our designs. Back in May this year, Nick was invited to represent the UK and joined 6 other top European designers at the Passion Experience at Marjoland in Holland. World renowned for growing Passion roses, Marjoland has to be seen to be believed. The greenhouse is the largest in Europe and manages to produce over 1.2 million roses per week.

Nick (right) joined Johan van den Nouweland (Head of Growing and Technical) in one of the huge greenhouses for a tour of the 20 hectare site.

Blink and you'll miss it - one of the high speed rose grading machines.

The stunning entrance display created by Nick, Nadine Thiemann (Germany) and Hanna Roxberg (Sweden) - three designers, three languages, three visions but they got there in the end!

One of Nick's hand tied bouquet designs showing deep red Passion roses combined with calla lilies, gerbera and dahlias.

A touch of tartan was brought to the proceedings.
