March 8, 2016 — Several illegal gerbera plantations were recently detected in the Mexican province of Estado de México, which led to legal steps by Florist Holland to curtail these operations.

On Wednesday, March 2 of this year, these actions resulted in the confiscation and destruction of a complete gerbera plantation, with plants that were reproduced illegally.
