I did not know selection of roses is such a labor intensive process. A lot of patience is needed before you can finally present a new rose..
An award for Master Breeder Kees Dogge from Kwekerij Landjuweel for Leycesteria formosa ‘Purple Rain’.
Together with a few million employees he grows beautiful summer flowers and shrubs.
Kees, with his broad smile, is both breeder and beekeeper.
When we arrive in Welberg at his nursery we meet all the bees flying everywhere.
In addition to the flowers, they also sell products of their own beekeeping. True honey from our own bees and of course very beautiful razors, his wife Marjoleen tells us.
Sustainable cultivation is logical for Kees. With 90 bees populations, soil biology and responsibility, he ensures a good balance on the nursery.
For the future…… Kees proposes to work more together. Through cooperation we gain more knowledge.
Look to the bees, they show us how to use your tools for quality flowers.
