SPRAY ROSE FARM VISIT TO UNFOLD THE SPRAY ROSE VARIETIES

Golden Tulip Farm is the best spray rose growers in Kenya are part of Black Tulip Flowers. The farm is located at Ol Kalou 2350m above sea level that makes it ideal to grow flowers. I recently visited the farm and quite amazed by the most modern and efficient infrastructure. Mr. Umesh Choudhery, General Manager & Mr. Praveen Singh, Farms Manager of Golden Tulip Farm were kind enough to explain to me the behind-the-scenes process of growing and exporting the best quality spray roses to different countries of the world.

The flowers are harvested at a greenhouse and sent to intake area, at intake area flowers are check for pest and disease, after checking flowers which pass are kept in the cold room overnight for proper hydration. The following day flowers are taken out from the cold room, they are sorted lengthwise, bunched as per buyers request after bunching, bunches are put into sleeves and sent to the cold room for the boxing. Once flowers are kept in the box strapped and packed, they are ready for dispatch. Before the dispatch, random checking of boxes is done to make sure flowers are good and there are no discrepancies. The flowers are loaded on a truck and sent to freight forward agent warehouse to export spray roses at its destine destination.

‘’Growing spray rose is an art and science. The flowers are like new-born babies, they are prone to pest and diseases with the slightest change in the weather condition. The art is to treat them well and the science is to take appropriate steps, to adapt the preventing strategy fast enough when environment change to protect the plant from pest and disease and get the best flowers’’. Say Mr. Umesh ‘’the skill and diligence play a vital role to grow premium spray roses’’
