The Company Structure
Celine Colours is situated on the J. Poortmanweg 15 te Berkel en Rodenrijs. This is a small new horticultural area near to the Munnikenweg. (an older horticultural area ). In our company of 16.000 m2 we grow large flowering cutflower cymbidium. We work with an internal transportsystem to transport the flowers to the packing area without damaging the product and roller conveyors to transport the boxes to the end of the packingprocedure. Here the boxes are quality checked and put on special auction trollies.
At Celine nursery we grow 5200 m2 late flowering ( May-July ) and 10400 m2 early flowering ( August-November ). Since the start in 1992 we our philosophy is to produce our quality product out of the normal season. That in contrary to our collegae growers. Therefore the bulk of our business and labour is done in summer. Another line of work we do is the selection and propagation of existing cymbidium varieties for our own use to upgrade our plant stock and for selling to colleague growers. These plants are grown at Hans Bart Orchids to a pot size 5 liter.

The wild varieties of orchids can be found in Europe , North America and Asia. The cymbidium we grow at our nursery originate from the Himalaya from where it was taken to England around the year 1900 . There it was used for cross-breeding what resulted in an assortment of more than 1000 different cymbidium varieties we know today.
