The club holds monthly meetings, where the members get to socialize and enjoy each other’s company. Besides being a social club, the AWCA is also a philanthropic organiztaion, from helping battered women’s organization, through help funding programs to rehabilitate the homeless and the wayward youth  and to setting up the Carolyn Korthals Altes Scholarship, which helps members or their family member with the funding of their secondary education.
Tuning is proud to have sponsored the flowers for this year’s fundraiser the AWAC TULIP GALA !

DUTCH PEONIES

PEONY TIME!!! 

Dutch Peony season is about to start so get excited!

Florists can start buying peonies as early as February with the first available ones being the Israeli green house grown varieties, which are followed by the French greenhouse then field grown blossoms and last but not least the Dutch tunnel, greenhouse and field grown varieties.

Since the weather is heating up in Holland the first varieties of Dutch grown peonies are entering the market.

EVERT HAKET – PREMIUM QUALITY DUTCH PEONIES

Evert Haket has been in the Peony business for over 20 years, and they have become the biggest and best growers Holland has to offer. They harvests huge quantities of peonies without compromising on quality. When you buy peonies from Haket, you can be certain of one thing: you’re getting a quality product! And that’s quite the achievement. It’s a big challenge to produce peonies of such uniform quality without the use of greenhouses; every branch is different, with deviations in length, flower size and strength of the stem. It makes cutting and bunching the peonies more difficult and makes perfect sorting a necessity. At Hacket’s, all branches are harvested and sorted by the family themselves and bunched by hand to ensure that only the most perfect peonies will reach the customer.

It all starts early season with Flame, the official opener of peony season, immediately followed by – among others –  Gardenia, Henry Bockstoce, Red Sarah Bernhardt,Prarie Moon, Pecher (French), Dr Alexander Flemming, Shirley Temple Coral Charm and Coral Sunset and also exclusive varieties like Old Faithful and Etched Salmon. At full capacity, both nurseries produce a whopping thirty carts a day!

About the Vanda stems we offer:
All Vanda cultivation starts out in Thailand, where the plants are grown until they are mature enough to be transported to the Netherlands. The last phase of their cultivation is completed here at Anco Pure Vanda, a nursery fully specialized in Vanda. Here the plants will hang in their greenhouse for about a year in order the get perfect flowers on the plants.
Vanda is sold both as cut flower and as flowering plant. The cut flowers are sturdy and last a very long time in the vase, which is why these flowers are preferred by wedding planners and designers. Due to its slow growth the Vanda is also widely used as an indoor plant, because it is extremely robust and better in withstanding less favorable conditions than other indoor plants.
Keep in mind that all the Vandas we offer on our site are priced Per Stem not Per Head !
