"Belle de Boskoop" Boskoop by Klod5

Boskoop Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 32 photos


The village of Boskoop is the nursery center of Holland. It is a place that is unique in the world.

The soil of Boskoop is a fertile humus of fen soil bounded by dune sand along the North Sea and clay along the Old Rhine, Dutch Yessel, and New Maas Rivers. The soil was derived from the vegetation remains of the old lagoon of the Rhine and Maas Rivers.

A visit to Boskoop is a treat for any serious nurseryman. The canals add a distinct charm to the village and a uniqueness to the many nurseries. The nurseries are small in acreage, the plants are small in size, but the people are generous in their willingness to share their time and nursery practices with a visitor from France.
