Grower of the week! kwekerij Tonie

In 2011 summer flower grower Perry Snabel increased the surface area of Kwekerij Tonie in Nieuwveen from 1.5 to 6 ha.
Perry: ” An extensive investment in a permanent greenhouse, in 4 rolling greenhouses, a screenhouse as well as abroad enable me to be active
on the market throughout the year and carry a wider assortment and larger quantities.” On 1 January 2011 I took over the company
from lily grower Panck van Leeuwen in Ter Aar, offering unique opportunities. This new location meets all my requirements and the Nieuwveen
location will also remain in production. At these two locations we conduct different activities. In Nieuwveen we use 1.5 ha for the cultivation of the following crops:
Solidago Tara, Campanula glomerata, Rudbeckia, Phlox, Trachelium, Limonium Ocean blue and Ohio blue.
In Ter Aar a third greenhouse is intended for lilies. Here you will find, inter alia, Robina, Siberia, Santander, Caroline Tensen, Sheila, Willeke Alberti and Lake Michigan.
Besides lilies we also grow Green Trick during the winter. By supplying fine, compact balls of flowers throughout the year I am aiming to become a renowned supplier,
and owing to the continuity this objective runs as a thread through our company.
