Who we are
Wijnand and Julia bought a small nursery with flowershop in 1968. This was already called De Zonnebloem (The Sunflower) since 1940. In 1984 they came in contact with patio plant products (Lantana). As one of the first growers in Holland theu started with the production of patio plants on high stemms and quite fast they start propagating patio plants and beddingplants by cuttings for other companies. As they where true pioneers they travelled a lot trough Europe to found new varieties.
Since De Zonnebloem moved from Nieuwe Niedorp to De Kwakel in 1996 Bart became co-owner. Later, in 2001, also Cris made his entry in the company.
Our mission is to do fair business and personal contact. At the IPM in Essen Germany, the Flower Trails in week 24 and the FH Trade Fair Aalsmeer Holland we have a booth to contact our relations. Please take a visit there and meet us in our booth. You also can come to our nursery to take a look. Please make a appointment firts to ensure one of us is there.
