F. Kuipers en Zonen
The nursery known as Firma F. Kuipers en Zonen was founded in 1962. In 1988, we (Ron and Sietse) took over the business from our father. Since then, we have specialised in growing different varieties of Skimmias.
In the beginning, we started growing them to sell as garden plants for retail and garden centres. In 2008, we started producing Skimmias as cut flowers. These are supplied daily to Flora Holland in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk and Rijnsburg, where they are used in autumn and Christmas bouquets.
A few years ago, we also started painting skimmias during the Christmas period. The painted flowers are mostly used in making Christmas decorations. They are available in ten different colours. The most popular are gold, champagne and white with mother-of-pear glitter.
