Boskoop Things to Do

  • Un canal, un pont, et quelques rues...

    Boskoop is well worth a visit by any plant lover who is travelling through Holland. The nurseries are unique and the industrious people are friendly.

  • Holstein

    The numerous grazings that one sees in the surrounding country are essentially destined to the dairy cows of Holstein race (a race that one designates in France under the Dutchwoman name). The grass is there fat and green, very dark, what indicates a rich in humus soil and very watered. For what is of one watered soil, I confirm!

    Mr. Koemans also showed me a number of Picea pungens grafts that were done the past summer. He likes to do most of his spruce and fir grafts in August since it spreads the grafting season out over a longer period of time, and the success rate is higher than for winter grafts.

    A nursery next door to Koeman's nursery is Firma C. Esveld, famous for the aceretum of its owners, Dick and Hildie van Gelderen. Esveld sells wholesale internationally and retail to local customers. A wide range of Boskoop grown nursery stock may be seen and purchased at this nursery.
