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.

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 Gebroeders van der Salm.

The brothers Hans and Paul van der Salm, then only twenty years old, were the ones who started the Van der Salm company at Kooiweg 32 in Boskoop in the late eighties. Year after year they invested a lot in the construction of greenhouses, cultivation systems, planting robots and delivery lines. Slowly but surely, attention was increasingly focused on the cultivation of Lavender, with Gaultheria as intermediate cultivation.

In the year 2000, the site at Kooiweg 15 in Boskoop was purchased, where a new, highly automated nursery was established with greenhouses, container fields, loading docks and an office. Kooiweg 15 is still the main location today.

In 2002 the company De Bent was founded in collaboration with Wansinck B.V.: a 7 hectare large open-field nursery, where a high-quality and wide range of boxwood, Ilex and Conica (Picea Glauca) is grown. Today, this company has three locations, including an 18 hectare open field nursery and 3.5 hectares of container fields.

Lavender cultivation has also started in Portugal since 2001/2002. Thanks to the pleasant, mild climate, market demand for flowering lavender plants is met in early spring. This enables Salm Boskoop to supply large batches of plants of uniform, high quality over a very long period.

May 3, 2007 is a black day for the company. Hans van der Salm is killed in a traffic accident in Portugal. Partly due to his vision, commitment and personality, Salm Boskoop has grown into a large, modern and innovative company of which all employees are equally proud.

In February 2011, a branch will be added in Hazerswoude, where all plants from Portugal are processed efficiently.

Since 2012, the company has its own breeding and testing location. Here they search for new varieties and test new cultivation methods. The goal is even stronger plants and less use of plant protection products.

Today Salm Boskoop has no fewer than eight branches in the Netherlands and one in Portugal. The range consists of Lavender, Boxwood, Gaultheria, Conica, Pinus Pinea, Ilex and Deco Fruit. The company is both MPS GAP and MPS SQ certified.

In short, a modern family business with a long history that grows fantastic products.
