Haveman nursery is located in Smilde, in Drenthe. Right now, the main products cultivated on the nursery are Ornamental Cabbage, Poppy, Bupleurum and Sun Flowers. Last year we started to expand the collection and tests were done with perennial summer flowers. In the coming season, this expansion will take shape. The first newcomer coming into production this year is Lysimachia ’Elisabeth’.
Haveman nursery cultivates flowers on an area of about 25 ha. We switch plots around a lot to guarantee good crop rotation for reliable quality and delivery. Haveman nursery attaches great importance to good information supply, which ensures a correct matching of production and marketing. Part of the term known in floriculture as “market-oriented production”, only applies if efforts are put into production-oriented marketing. In any case, these two items must be well matched. This is partly the reason for cooperating in the Summerflowers initiative. Haveman believes that a good combination of efficiency and a clear vision and quality is the best advertising. It is possible to bring good quality at a reasonable price to the market.
