March 20, 2014, Dunnville,Ont. — Rosa Flora Limited has finalized a deal to purchase Peter Bulk Greenhouses in nearby Welland.

“Closing this deal means that we are able to provide our customers with quality locally grown snapdragons as of Monday,” says Rosa Flora co-owner Josh Bulk.

Arising out of a need to replace a snapdragon range lost in a March 6 fire, Rosa Flora is back online with their own greenhouse grown snapdragons just two weeks later. Over 90,000 square feet of snapdragons is now ready to ship.

PRODUCTION WILL SOON GROW TO THREE HECTARES

Coupling this deal with rebuilding efforts, Rosa Flora will have close to three hectares of snaps production by summer 2014.
 
In addition, the Welland operation is growing viburnum, peonies and ilex in smaller quantities.

Shipping to Rosa Flora customers will begin on Monday (March 24).

'LIFELONG GROWER DEDICATED TO PREMIUM PRODUCT'

Rosa Flora co-owner Ralph DeBoer notes that Peter Bulk of Peter Bulk Greenhouses “is a lifelong grower who is dedicated to providing a premium product. We welcome Peter Bulk as part of the Rosa Flora team.”

(In case you were wondering, Peter Bulk is a cousin to Rosa Flora founder, Otto Bulk!)

Since 1978, Rosa Flora has adopted Pride in Every Petal as its business philosophy. It is one of the leading cut flower growers in North America, specializing in large and mini gerbera, alstroemeria, snapdragons and stephanotis.
