Grower of the week: Marjoland
On 24 January, we visited Marjoland’s rose nursery, where we were welcomed by Angelien and Roy. Together with the family, they run a rose nursery of 20 hectares, which makes theirs the biggest rose nursery in the Netherlands.
Marjoland was founded in 2000, but the history of the company goes back to 1978. Joop van den Nouweland started out growing cucumbers, but switched to roses in 1985.
When the company moved to its current location in Waddinxveen in 2000, Marjoland was created. At its current location, Marjoland has 20 hectares, where 6 rose varieties are grown. The nursery employs 250 people who spend each day working on top-quality roses.
The range consists of the following varieties: Sweet Dolomiti, White Naomi, Red Naomi, Lovely Dolomiti, Penny Lane and Jumilia.
