Growing Together Since 1994
Saad-Assaf Flowerbulbs nurseries grow classic Amaryllis and Canna varieties, as well as New, Special Varieties, issued from a unique breeding program.
We are using growth facilities such as climate-controlled greenhouses, suspended media, high technology system for recycling drain water, and a controlled supply of nutrients. We are taking advantage of our climate conditions – converting sun energy to electricity and heat source for disinfection of growth suspended media (soil solarization).
Our staff includes experienced growers whose goal is to ensure the supply of superior quality flower bulbs to our valued customers around the globe, many of whom are among the largest flower bulb suppliers in the world.
As one of the leaders in bulb cultivation and supply, Saad - Assaf is committed to the high quality of our products. We provide full support to our clients, giving consultation and technical assistance for any questions that might arise after bulbs have been planted.
The story begins in 1984, Azriel has started to grow Amaryllis bulbs in an open field, next to his home. After a few years of progress and he felt it's time to expand. One of his closest friends knew Itzik Lichter, who was the manager of the greenhouses complex of Kibbutz Saad - a small settlement in the northern part of the Negev.
Azriel reached out to Kibbutz Saad and start a trial with Amaryllis bulbs growing in a greenhouse. This experiment went very well, so they decided to establish a partnership - Azriel and Kibbutz Saad.
In the beginning, there were just two greenhouses in an area of 2 hectares, the yield was about 30,000 bulbs per year.
Today, we are growing almost 2,000,000 Amaryllis bulbs in 15 hectares of greenhouses in Israel and about 1,000,000 Canna Rhizomes in the open field.
Also - we have started a partnership with Siam Flower Bulbs, Thailand and we are growing together 15 hectares of Amaryllis in Thailand.
Our most precious resource is our workers!
So we employ highly experienced growers and workers whose goal is to ensure the supply of excellent quality bulbs to our valued customers around the world.
