Van Hemert & Co is a wholesale seed company founded in 1876 as seed merchants and breeding company of a wide range of vegetables. In the early days the sales of vegetable seeds for local growers was the majority of our business. Gradually we specialized in pictorial seed packets for retail outlets throughout the Netherlands, which is still an important part of our activities today.
In 1996 the focus of our breeding shifted to ornamentals which has developed to be a major activity today. Van Hemert has grown to be a reputable name worldwide when it comes to introducing unique, different and high quality flower varieties. Nearly every year we introduce new flowering plants with the ‘wow’ factor for both professional growers and hobby gardeners. All our breeding activities are GMO-free.
Not only is the quality of our varieties of a high level, so is the actual seed that we supply. We consider the cleaning of our seed crops to be an integral part of our high quality standard.
Our wholesale export assortment consists only of varieties bred by us and are carried in the ranges of many seed distributors and seed companies all over the world.
“Our mission is not to be the largest seed company; we strive to be the company with varieties that make a difference and seed quality that you can rely on”.
