About us

Kwekerij Boonen-van der Heijden B.V.

Founded in 1984 by Thei Boonen and Toos van der Heijden.

The company specializes in growing ground-cover plants, which are nurtured from first cutting to final product. Our aim as a company is to remain a key player in this branch of the perennial plant and shrub market.

Our main clientele consists of garden centres, retail, trade, cash-and-carry’s and landscapers, both domestic and abroad.

Environmental responsibility and ecological sustainability are key concepts within the nursery, exemplified by (among other things) the on-site biomass power plant and its use of 100% recyclable potting material.

At its well maintained and tranquil location on the outskirts of Heibloem (Netherlands) over 40 dedicated employees work year round to create and keep up the high quality plants for which the company is known and its customers have come to expect.


Next generation

From January 2021 the company has been partly taken over by the next generation, 2 of the 3 children are in the company. Son Jeroen mainly focuses on cultivation within the cuttings department and daughter Monique does the work in the field of human resources, sales and financial administration.
Through the years of work experience of Jeroen and Monique within the nursery, but also through experiences at other companies, they have beautiful and new ideas for the future.

No private sales
