How it started….

When you grow up between the flowers and plants you are infected by it, at least that was the case for me. My father had a flower nursery and as a little boy, you soon walk along.

After the horticultural school, I started growing flowers and perennials myself and tried to sell these home-grown plants. One thing leads to another and that is how I started supplying a small assortment to garden centers, shops and gardeners.

Started in the barn of my father with my bedroom functioning as an office, a begin was made. With few resources and a lot of manual labor, my products were packed and delivered personally. Thanks to my parents and loyal customers, my business grew.

In 2002 I moved to a new nursery at the Torenlaan in Voorhout. A beautiful new greenhouse and barn, with this a lot changed. Enough space for cold stores, machines and the first employees were hired.

Now 20 years later we are a team consisting of 20 employees and have grown to a modern company specialized in growing and packaging plants and flower bulbs to deliver to the specialist.

With our collection consisting of over 1500 different types of packaged and loose flower bulbs, plants and gift items, we now deliver our products in more than 15 countries.
