The nursery of Mts Bos – de Vries was set up in 1979 by Nenne Bos – de Vries. Even then, a large collection of summer flowers was grown. The company grew gradually to an area of almost 2.5 ha. At that time (2007), daughter Adrie joined the company. After that, Bos – de Vries, became Bos – de Vries partners.
It’s worth mentioning that this is a mother-daughter enterprise. A good sign that the new generation of young entrepreneurs in summer flowers are not concerned about the old division of roles at all. The flowers from this nursery are grown at the nursery in Zwaanshoek. Processing takes place at the home location in Nieuw-Vennep. Although the main breeds consist of Achillea, Eryngium and Hypericum, there is always room to test out new crops to add to the collection in the future.
Besides running a profitable business, it is important for us to do so responsibly. For that reason, we strive as much as possible for integral growing. This means we work as much as possible with natural enemies to control diseases, as long as the health of the crops and quality of the end product allow it. We believe this is the way to maintain customer confidence in the future. The nice thing is that most natural enemies occur naturally. The only thing you need to do is to let them live. Through our participation in Summerflowers we hope to enhance our reputation in the market and express our ideal, growing sustainable quality flowers, even more.
