Message from the nursery
Update March 23rd 2020 : There will be no events with us this spring. We would like to invite you in case we miss you at one of the garden markets to order your bulbs in the webshop. We will be happy to send them to you, as long as that’s still possible.
We were there again early this year: in our house it smells of spring as early as February.
Vases are filled with colourful tulips and the daffodils stand proudly upright in the pots, taken from the greenhouse on the Loosterweg. Upon entering the house, the smell of hyacinth flowers is not to be missed. You too can have this spring party in your house soon. We send almost daily fresh flowers by post: whether it’s tulips, daffodils, (mixed) hyacinths or anything else. Harvested today, maybe tomorrow in your vase on the table?
This year you’ll find even more Dahlias in the spring bulb list: I think they deserve a place in every garden. The assortment of garden gadgets has also been expanded, with a lot of news from nursery van Winsen from Warmond. Mark van Winsen grows from the stall of Hermien Challa, the well-known gladiolus breeder from Laag-Soeren, Gelderland. A collection full of colours that are absolutely not out of place under the sun. More news this year can be found under the headings ‘Crocosmia’ and ‘Lily’. The shadow garden is not forgotten, with Arisaema’s and several rare perennials.
For the smaller garden or on the balcony there is a wide choice of Begonia, Zantedeschia, Dahlia and various other summer bulbs, such as Sprekelia, Sparaxis or Eucomis. For cultivation in pots in the house or greenhouse (including Hedychium, Chlidanthus, Scadoxus and Haemanthus) the development in leafy plants such as Caladium is worth following.
Extra fun and certainly worthwhile to take a look at our webshop more often: plant grower Franck van der Valk delivers perennials to us at the times when they are best transplanted. That means: a fresh, varied assortment that can be different every week!
From March we will send the first bulbs and tubers, before that time you can enjoy freshly picked bulbous flowers.
