Fa. Freek van der Velden
The Fa. Freek van der Velden Nursery has specialised in the cultivation of pot gerberas for around 25 years. Now they are increasing their cultivation of seasonal products, like the Helleborus Christmas Carol, Poinsettia, Garvinea and from 2020 also Cheeky Garvinea. For the owners Freek and Martin van der Velden, the fostering of quality products takes priority. This becomes evident in the cultivation process. From cutting through to mature plant, father and son keep a close watch on the process, and if needed, adjustments are made daily to produce top-quality plants. Careful grading is done to meet the customers’ different wishes. For example, the Gerbera 12cm comes in 40 different categories. For Gerbera, Helleborus and Garvinea, only the best plants are supplied under the Decorum label.
Along with growing quality plants , the environment is an important aspect for our company. We want to burden the environment as little as possible, reuse the water, separate waste and generate our own energy. And naturally, we employ biological crop protection. Because the nursery has been certified by both Productproof and MPS SQ, we can supply the sustainable Decorum Feel Green brand. For Freek and Martin every order is important, whether it concerns one tray or one trailer.
