Clematis grower J. van Zoest
This time, a peek behind the scenes at the most exclusive Clematis grower, J. van Zoest. This nursery produces more than 450 varieties on two hectares of land: from large-flowered to small-flowered, double-flowered and even compact, non-climbing varieties with an upright habit. Ever seen a clematis with green, double-petaled flowers? Or varieties with flowers as big as your hand?
These new breeds will then be presented at the annual Plantarium Fair in Boskoop, The Netherlands, where Jan and his team have often received the award for the best introduction. As for himself, Jan is most proud of one of his own varieties: Clematis Princess Kate.
