NL: ins and outs of plant nursery Bosplant

Grower Bosplant is a collaboration of three business associates: Johan van Antwerpen, father Jan and son Jelle van den Bos. The nursery has this company since 2007. Bosplant grows eight plant varieties with a total cultivation area of about 40,000 square meters. The nursery is located in the center of the grower area, ‘s-Gravenzande. Alongside Primula, Poinsettia, Helianthus, Pelargonium grandiflorum and the Lisianthus, they are specialized in the Cyclamen.



The grower grows different plants per season to produce large amounts of products. Selling beforehand is very important to avoid purchase risks. A lot of trade is sold on contract and a few through the auction clock. The purchase starts when the sale is ready.

The products are top-quality with retail prices. The plants are delivered to retail and DIY-stores. All the products are brought from the nursery to a transport company in Naaldwijk. This company transports the products to the next destination in the Netherlands and abroad. Through the year, about 700-800 thousand cyclamens will leave the nursery. And the cyclamen isn’t even their main product!



The production of the Poinsettia has a fast process. The plant material will be bought in July, and the plants will leave the nursery in October. The Poinsettias are delivered to the customers seven days a week. Even on Sunday a particular team provides the production and daily delivery.

The Cyclamen is the perfect plant to counter the dark days because of the white and bright colored flowers. The plant looks tender, but is a good blooming plant which has steady roots.
 


Sustainability is an important topic at Bosplant. Since October 2017, the biological way of growing is professionalized. Also the nursery is MPS-SQ and MPS-GAP certificated.

OZ Planten is a proud partner of the French Geranium (Pelargonium grandiflorum) and cyclamen of Bosplant. We are looking forward to collaborate with this partner for many more years.
