Welcome to P.W. Captein & Zn.

We would like to give a brief introduction of who we are and what we can do for you.

Our company is located on the border of Boskoop and Alphen aan den Rijn, on the eastside of the river the Gouwe and near access roads such as N207 and N11. Because of this, our company is quickly and easily accessible (see route).

We are specialized in growing ornamental shrubs of high quality and our main crop consists of i.a. Magnolia, Syringa and Cotoneaster, both in shrub shape and on trunk. Furthermore, we also grow a variety of shrubs as i.a. Cornus, Euonymus, Exochorda, Hibiscus and Hydrangea. Many of these species are available on trunk and as shrub .

All plants are delivered in square-round container pots, our 'trademark'. Through the use of these pots we guarantee a better loading of cc-trolleys so that the transport costs per plant are substantially lower than with the use of round pots.

Nowadays, we also place our plants in wall hangers. This is a bag with several plants that you can hang on the wall. The plant covers the whole bag so that you can’t see it anymore.

Our plants find their way inland and abroad through distribution channels such as i.a.:

1) Garden centers
2) DIY shops
3) Flora Holland
4) Exporters
5) Cash & Carry
6) Wholesale
7) Line-riders
8) Breeders

Potcover

Colorful styled pot covers and the use of pots that are round on the bottom and square at the top, that is the striking way to draw the attention to your plants and trees.
The big advantage is that the loading is better utilised. The specific shape of the pot creates
approximately 15% additional loading and with the ornate covers we make the marketing year longer. Thanks to the professional pot covers the visual attention will be optimal throughout the year.
This concept is ideally suited for bushy plants with a height of up to 40 cm.
We ourselves use the pot for our classic assortment.
It is possible to offer these plants, which are grown in pots, in trays.

  • Liriope m. ‘Royal Purple
  • Liriope m ‘Gold Banded
  • Magnolia soulangeana
  • Syringa vul. An. Ludwig Spath
  • Hydrangea a. petiolaris

Wall hangers

Nowadays, we also place our plants in wall hangers. This is a bag with several plants that you can hang on the wall. The plant covers the whole bag so that you can’t see it anymore.

We grow a new Buddleja davidii 'Sophie' and we also have this as a wall hanger for sale. A special way of breeding as well as a sales product is something unique.

A blooming wall

There are several cuttings in the wall hanger so that we quickly have a beautiful plant that is bushy and full of buds and flowers. When you attach several wall hangers on a wall or fence, you get a beautiful blooming wall. The plants are in a UV-resistant bag filled with quality potting soil. If the plant gets water on time and if you cut off the brown flowers, then you can enjoy this plant throughout the summer

Unique watering system

Each wall hanger is provided with a little pipe which is located through the whole bag. When you pick up a glass bottle with water and place it upside down on the little pipe, the plant gets water automatically. Through the holes in the little pipe the water becomes evenly distributed over the wall hanger. If there is a rain storm do not think the wall hanger has enough water. The surface where the water can enter is not big.

Environment

Environment is an increasingly important aspect, both the pesticides and the waste.

We have been working with this for years. Almost all of our waste is recycled. We make limited use of the pesticides because it is expensive, not good for you and not good for the environment.

Weed is still a problem in our industry, turnips are expensive and chemical pesticides are almost not allowed anymore. Over a decade, we have been using capping material for the pots so we pull few turnips and do not have to use chemicals.

We try to make the plants harder with biological resources through which the insects have little or no chance to damage the plant.

In short, we try not only to unburden the environment but also to make work more pleasant for ourselves.
