Born into a horticultural family and growing up among the crops, Nico van den Berg started his own company together with his wife Elly in 1987. Currently, Nico cultivates Calathea Crocata Candela, Aster Showmaker, Campanula, Helleborus niger, Helleborus orientalis and Portulaca together with his son Niels. Quality is extremely important at Montis, forming the focus for the entire company. Everything is automated for optimal quality and complies with the latest environmental requirements. Calathea Crocata is their own selection variety from Kwekerij Montis with especially large and deep orange-coloured flowers. The addition of ‘candela’ refers to the candle-like shape of the flowers. A special story for a special plant! Montis delivers his best plants every season with the compliments of Decorum.
