The Boerma family is in the flower business since 1896. In that year, the family started growing and selling flowers in Maastricht in the south of Holland. In 1985 the family started to conduct courses in English in Aalsmeer. From all over the world professionals come to the school, individually as well as in groups.

During the Boerma flower arranging online demonstrations, teachers show their skills during a live stream on YouTube. Mike Boerma edits the videos using a video editing app in a shorter format for you to watch at any preferred time. During the following session, Mike creates a hand-tied bouquet, a foam-free arrangement fit for a hotel or restaurant and a big flower arrangement for events.
