Geest Potplanten is a forward-thinking nursery with five locations in Westland. We grow potted plants with the utmost care on an area covering 15 hectares.
Our product range consists of Areca, Calathea, Monstera, Musa, Strelitzia and our Phalaenopsis. . They can be recognised by our own G-style, Ultimate Sweetness and Glamour Collection labels.

Every day our crop experts are busy to keep the ecological system in our greenhouses in a good balance. Jan van Bleijswijk, our crop supervisor explains how: "Our Phalaenopis plants grow and flourish without the use of chemicals, but by the use of natural enemies. To achieve this we have strict hygiene rules for our employees and visitors. We check every day which and how many animals are traveling in our greenhouses. Counting, checking and recording. A real painstaking work, but by result that we pick up organic plants!"
We are MPS-A, -GAP and -Socially Qualified registered under number 600780. We guarantee a stable working method through constant quality control, including internal and external audits. We are also a participant in ProductProof, which makes it clear to our customers at any time what is present in our product. The juices of the plant are tested with so-called residue analyses. This shows which products have been used during the propagation. With ProductProof, companies can connect to always have up-to-date information.
Geest Potplanten very consciously opts for sustainability and wants to get the best out of the plants. These are therefore grown in an environmentally conscious and responsible manner. We are MPS-A+, -(Global) Gap and – Socially Qualified, GRASP and (on the way to) PlanetProof certified. We are also a participant in ProductProof.
We recently built a beautiful new energy-efficient greenhouse. This location is equipped with DryGair units that ensure a uniform climate throughout the greenhouse and additional dehumidification and internal ventilation for energy savings. The circulation takes place at all heights (also in the middle of the crop) and this large air capacity ensures that closed cultivation is possible here.
An example of a sustainable choice is that for our cultivation pots. These are made from recycled material. The pots of the green plants are made from 95-99% recycled material from consumer waste. This is called PCR material, post consumer recyclate. The pots do not contain any carbon black pigment, and are therefore traceable in the recycling process after use. The pots of our orchids are made with 95-99% recycled business waste. This is called PIR material, post-industrial recyclate.
We always make our choices by choosing the best options for the environment and fellow human beings.
