Around 1930, Kapiteyn grew into one of the first professional flower bulb companies in the Netherlands. Together with the first Garden Centres within Europe and America, prepackaged flower bulb concepts were developed; A completely new phenomenon.
As a breeder of Calla’s, we do not settle for new varieties alone. We work daily to improve and further develop our range of pot and cut Callas - and with success! The Captain Calla brand is now known worldwide, not least because we can deliver every day of the year.
Breeding is a skill! - It requires thorough knowledge, an eye for detail and loving attention. In short; Forcing is a passion, which we support wholeheartedly with cultivation advice. Together, we overcome the risks that could affect your harvest so that the supplied starting material develops optimally.
