Nursery  'Kwekerij Jaap Duijs'.

Our nursery is a small nursery near a little village named Otterlo. The entrance of our National Park 'De Hoge Veluwe' and 'Museum Kroller-Muller' is a mile to the east of our nursery. From late winter till the end of autumn we are growing a variety of bulbs and corms. Our season starts in january with the smaller bulbs like Galanthus, Eranthis, Scilla, Iris and Chionodoxa. Then in early springtime we have Anemotheca, Begonia multiflora, Crinum, Dahlia, Eucomis, Galtonia, Oxalis, Tulbaghia and Rhodohypoxis corms. In late spring we have cutflowers of Narcissus, Hyacinthus, Tulipa, Allium, Camassia en Nectaroscordum. In summertime we grow most of our summer bulbs in pots of various sizes. Then we have cutflowers of Ornithogalum, Crocosmia, Agapanthus, Dahlia, Eucomis and selection of sunflowers. Every week we do have bulbs in flower. In every season we take pictures of flowers and upload these to our website. 

We have been breeding bulbs for over 20 years. After crossing and growing, we have made a first selection of seedlings in Tulbaghia, Rhodohypoxis, Hypoxis and  Rhodoxis. It takes some time. This is a start.

 

Our Rhodoxis have been flowering all over Europe.
