A Rich History of Horticulture
Kwekerij Baas was founded by Arie and Inkeke Baas, who shared a passion for plants and a desire to establish a thriving horticulture business. Over the years, the company has expanded significantly, growing from a small greenhouse operation to a large-scale nursery covering around 30 hectares. The Baas family's dedication to quality and innovation has allowed Kwekerij Baas to become a leading player in the Dutch horticulture market, with their plants now adorning gardens and landscapes across Europe.
An Extensive Product Range
Kwekerij Baas boasts an impressive assortment of plant varieties, catering to the diverse needs of their clients. Their product range includes:
- Baas Basic: In the spring and summer, Baas Basic consists of a wide range of packs, such as violets, petunias, begonias, marigolds, and many different types of bedding plants and cuttings. The Baas Basic line in autumn and winter include bulbous chrysanthemums, autumn violets, and poinsettias.
- Blooming Joy®: The plants from the Blooming Joy® collection were devised by Baas to make things easier for consumers. The line is specially composed and selected for quality, shelf life, and garden performance. The strength of Blooming Joy® is that it mainly consists of mixes devised by our professionals.
- Urban Gardening®: A concept that continues where traditional ends; a daring and unexpected mix of plants in a limited space. You can think of a combination of the most beautiful garden plants, herbs, vegetables, grasses, and fruit in a pot with water buffer.
- Co-Creations: Creativity, innovation, quality and the best of this collaboration come together in our Co-Creations collection. In this collection, we use our green fingers and the expertise of other great companies. Together we come up with unique products and we provide even more (garden) happiness.
