De Kwakel, April 2022 – Nursery De Wintertuin in De Lier and Agriom in De Kwakel work together to develop new bougainvillea varieties like Renate (purple), Jolanda (pink) and Fire Ball (bright orange). These varieties grow very well in Northern-European climate conditions.
Bougainvillea is a niche crop, a product that requires additional skills from the growers. ,,We got to know Frans and Wouter van den Bos, father and son, as very skilled plant growers”, says Jaap Stelder, director of Agriom. ,,The starting material that De Wintertuin delivers is excellent. By linking the knowledge of Frans and Wouter to our breeding and sales expertise, we can offer growers who want to start with bougainvillea added value.”
