Den Houter Gerbera consists of an area of an 18000 m2 warehouse where 21 different types of cultivars are grown. A lighting installation has been installed throughout the department store that illuminates the Gerberas all year round, depending on the weather. The electricity for the lighting installation is largely generated by itself using a combined heat and power connection, also known as CHP. When the CHP runs to feed the lighting, heat is released to make the electricity. This heat is stored in a buffer tank so that it can be used again in the greenhouse to heat the greenhouse. The CO2 that is released from the CHP is cleaned with a flue gas cleaner, so that it can be used to provide the Gerberas with CO2, thus stimulating growth. Furthermore, as much organic cultivation as possible, that is to say, against pests as many natural enemies as possible are used to suppress the pests.

Vip Roses is and always has been a family company. Brothers Marc and Ed Sassen transformed what once used to be their father’s rose greenhouse into a worldwide recognized name in roses. Now, after 35 years of commitment and hard work, Vip Roses - known for two almost contradictory products - is a greenhouse-like no other. In their 3.5 hectares of the greenhouse, the Sassen brothers produce an array of breathtaking roses. Their passion for the beauty of a rose has led them to source out some of the most stunning varieties. The fun is in the hunt, a continuous search for the most unique rose variety. Vip Roses offers an equally breathtaking, but entirely different line of roses than their homegrown garden style rose. These roses are the toppings. Incidentally, Vip Roses stumbled upon the tactic of manipulating roses. This led to thorough research into the world of painting roses. Requests for glitz and glamour led to many a new variety. The possibilities are endless!
