Love What’s in Season is about celebrating and creating awareness of the New Zealand flower growers and floriculture sector. This is about shining a spotlight on the local products produced, the flower industry and the art of bringing joy through a beautiful product. For the month of March, we're shining a special light on Tulips and our local grower Joost from KJ Flowers.
