It's a family business

Generations

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.
