Flower Bulbs, Our Nature

We have been engaged in developing, cultivating and marketing flower bulbs for four generations.

Flower bulbs are in our nature! We know all about it. At the start of a new Captain Calla (Kapiteyn breeding bv), to propagation at our own nursery (Kapiteyn horticulture bv) and ultimately packaging and marketing for retail (Kapiteyn bv), or delivery to growers (Kapiteyn captain calla bv).

We manage the first three steps in the chain ourselves - that is our strength. So we can truly say, Flower Bulbs, Our Nature!

Around 1930 Kapiteyn were one of the first professional flower bulb companies in the Netherlands. The first pre-packaged flower bulb concepts were developed in co-operation with the first garden centres in Europe and the United States.
