Tree Nursery Bloemendaal
We are specialized in growing exclusive topiary of Chamaecyparis cultivars. Chamaecyparis is a conifer which is not frost-sensitive. This conifer lends itself particular well to be pruned into form. The slow growth makes it possible, even easy, for the customer to keep up the shape.
All our topiary is on open land. After the order has been called for, all forms will be potted at your request in a decorative terracotta plastic container. Besides the excellent potting soil which is used, we give each plant an organic manure substance which enables the plan to grow optimally for about 8 months. The pot will be topped with little peaches of wood for decoration. At every plant we hang a photograph label in 3 languages with tips for application and treatment.
Topiary is not new. It is at the moment however again a hot item. Nowadays a garden must frequently be tightly. In antiquity one had already topiary. It exists from the Baroque time. But in those days it was only achievable for the aristocrats. In our days topiary can be bought by almost everybody.
This specialization is unique for the Netherlands. Topiary of conifers can also be found in Italy. They generally use cultivars which are more frost-sensitive. Moreover, those cultivars grow faster as a result of which it is for an individual less simple to keep up the form.
On our nursery, which is almost 2 hectares at large, more than 12.000 conifers are pruned into shape. The forms that we use are: Spiral, PonPon, Multiballs and Plateau. Furthermore we have conifers with 3, or 5 balls above each other. To be complete we can also offer combination forms such as ball spiral ball, ball PonPon, ball plateau etc. For photographs we refer you to the photo album of this site. There it is not difficult to get a good impression of the several forms. Moreover there you can see that the types are offered in large numbers.
