Grower of the week! De Landscheiding

The grower

My name is Wilco Hofman. I am a grower and the owner of nursery ‘De Landscheiding’.
I was born in Pijnacker in 1963. From the age of 19, I started growing chrysanthemums in my free time.
After two years I took on the challenge of growing ‘normal culture’ chrysanthemums in an old rented greenhouse during the autumn.
In 1985, I purchased my first company with an area of 4,500 m² and started growing ‘annual chrysanthemums’.
After four years of hard work, my wife Martina and I moved to Bleiswijk in the province of South Holland.
At the current location, we built a new company with 13,000 m² of space. In 1995, we started growing Santinis.
In the meantime, the company has been further modernised and expanded. I also really enjoy the fact that two of our children regularly work for our company.
