Van Woudenberg Tuinplanten BV is a family business based in Zevenhuizen. They have grown large, but in their customer approach they are people-oriented. In 1968 Van Woudenberg Tuinplant BV was started by Bert and Gerry van Woudenberg. It was a typical fruit-growing business from Zevenhuizen. In 1985 the nursery was hit by a fire and from that moment on the company was gradually continued as a garden plant nursery. That turned out to be the smart move. The percentage garden plants increased steadily since 1990 and eventually they were producing only decorative garden plants. With the arrival of the next generation, the growth of the company accelerated.
Maintaining the values that Bert and Gerry represented, the family business Van Woudenberg Tuinplanten BV has become a major player, producing a wide range of perennial garden plants, with cultivations in the Netherlands and Portugal. Because part of the product range is cultivated in Portugal, it is possible for Woudenberg to market the plants earlier than usual. The first species come to the Netherlands from March onwards. People within the company are very focused on good quality, go for lasting and long-lasting relationships with customers and do not immediately opt for the quick profit.
