Background

In 2000, with an initial production area of 20 hectares, Wildfire Flowers started to cultivate summer flowers such as Statice, Carthamus, Bupleurum and Molucella bought at the Dutch Auctions. In 2007 it moved on to growing Roses for the direct retail market (and for some wholesale clients). In doing so, it doubled its production area to 40 hectares.

Today Wildfire’s total production stands at 16.5 hectares of Roses, 19 hectares of Hypericum and 4 hectares of Molucella. We’re pleased to say that all of its Roses and the majority of the other crops are marketed via The Flower Hub and distributed to happy customers all over the world.
