Strength is doing what you are good at and what you are passionate about. We believe that it is essential to put your heart into everything you do. The roots and growing experience of our familiy firm go back more than 120 years and for 30 years we have been specialists in growing the surprising and versatile Bouvardia. Great-grandfather Dirk started a vegetable nursery in Oude Wetering in 1896 Grandfather Jacob started growing different kinds of (summer) flowers and tulip bulbs in the winter. When father Krijn took over from grandpa he grew with his nose for innovation and the newest varieties, more than 70 different flower varieties. In 1989 Krijn and his son Jaap specialized in year-round cultivation of the Bouvardia. A conscious choice for this, then relatively new, flower, which we have been growing with great pleasure for over 30 years now. At a modern nursery, other things besides growing nowadays require a lot of attention, that’s why daughter Tineke also joined the team.
