Our wholesaler of flowers and plants is always selecting only the best growers for our webshop. That is why we only have the most excellent growers in our range. Today we would like to introduce you to Kwekerij Bergcamp
The Bergcamp nursery was founded in 1995 and was created after the old Bergplant company had to make way for industry and the second main branch of that company, growing lettuce plants, had no future. Since potted plants were also produced at this location since 1980, the step to further expand this was quickly made.
Kwekerij Bergcamp is a real family business that specializes in the cultivation of flowering pot plants. The first location at 11 Oudecampsweg in De Lier has now grown into a modern production company. In 2006, the new building was located across the street from the existing location on Oudecampsweg.
Subsequently, the location on Hoogweg was purchased in 2013, where the cultivation of Campanula started in 2013. Unfortunately Teun died in 2014, after a short illness. Today the company is run by sons Robert and Walter van den Berg, together with an enthusiastic and committed team of employees.
The van den Berg family has a great history in horticulture. From 1965, the van den Berg family specialized in the vegetable world on the Leeweg in the Lier. Wim van den Berg grew grapes in his own greenhouse. He also grew cauliflower under flat glass. He was assisted in this by his own children. In the years that followed, lettuce cultivation entered the family. This was actively taken up by his sons (Wim / Piet and Teun van den Berg).
The Bergsla company was active in 1975 to 1996, where lettuce was grown and sold on tens of hectares of land. In addition to growing the lettuce, lettuce was also grown for other growers. New lettuce varieties were selected from America. The most famous variety that resulted from this is the iceberg lettuce. In addition to the Bergsla company, Bergplant was founded in 1980 by Wim and Teun van den Berg. Bergplant focused specifically on pot plant cultivation, where initially geraniums and later also cyclamen were grown. The Bergsla company stopped in 1996 due to the many imports and competition. Bergplant has moved from Leeweg to Oudecampseweg because the company had to make way for industry. The name of Bergplant was renamed “Kwekerij Bergcamp”, named after the location.
