We grow. Every single day. Generation to generation. Because great things happen when we collaborate with nature. Things no one expects or has ever seen before. Natural beauty that everyone deserves. We make every effort to provide the ultimate garden experience, endless and carefree. With visually attractive plants that are easy to maintain, can withstand severe winters, bloom every summer, and last a lifetime.
We are Living Creations® by Alex Schoemaker.
Nursery of the Hydrangea Paniculata.
Our Hydrangeas are easy to maintain, can withstand severe winters, bloom every summer and last a lifetime. That’s a whole bunch of promises, right? We love to explain how our Hydrangeas fulfill them.
We’ve been growing plants at our nursery in Boskoop for six generations. That’s six generations of Schoemakers, every one of which left a mark on the soil, the plants and the business. In a town like Boskoop, growing up between the nurseries, plant fever is quickly caught. Growing up here means growers’ blood runs in your veins. Your friends work in a nursery, and your friends’ fathers run their own nurseries. Your grandpa, your uncle and your cousins are all growers. You’d have to be pretty stubborn and strong-willed not to end up with your hands in the soil.
Joins the family business in 1906. Always working at the nursery, waiting for people to come by once a year to buy his plants.
Under Alex’s leadership, the nursery focuses its activities on growing the best Hydrangea paniculata from scratch. Today, Living Creations grows a million plants every season, creating new breeds each year.
