Grower of the week! Fa Klaas Joren Lilac's

The firm Klaas Joren Gzn. is a tradiotional forced shrub company at Aalsmeer.
By forced shrubs we mean all shrublikes which blossom at an earlier time, by threating them with special temperature.
We are specialized in growing Lilac’s.

The company is established at the oldest agricultural part of Aalsmeer, the Uiterweg nr. 336 also named “de buurt” (the neighbourhood).
This is a dike situated between the Haarlemmermeer Ringvaart and the Westeinderplas, where nurseries haven been a long time here.
Most of the nurseries have become yacht harbours at the march of years.

The fields of isles where we grow the forced shrubs are situated at the Westeinderplas. This area is now used by forced shrub growers and by aquatic sports and recreation.
At the beginning of the last century the peat soil was dug off at this area, and by draining the land of the Haarlemmermeer the dug off were filled with water.
That is how the Westeinderplas is created, where a strip of islands are separated by ditches. These isles are also called “Bovenland” upper land. This Bovenland lies some 6 metres higher then the polders surrounding it. Because of the peat soil structure of the soil, it is extreamely suiteble arabe land.
