Van den Tillaer Kwekerijen, located in Erp, province Noord-Brabant, is a nursery specialized in cultivating and propagating hydrangeas. From two locations, our plants make their way to customers home and abroad.
In 2007, we started growing hydrangeas by taking over an established nursery. We are working from two locations since 2008. We now have 1.5 ha greenhouse and 7 ha container field at our disposal, both in Erp. In the greenhouse, we let our cuttings take root in the cuttings section, and make indoor hydrangeas and a segment of the terrace plants. Outside, we take care of our own cultivation and bring most of the garden plants into blossom.
This means we can offer you various sizes hydrangeas from the end of January until September. We feel very strongly about quality and thanks to our flexibility we're happy to offer you both large and small lots.

The indoor hydrangea is being nursed in a greenhouse at an average temperature of 18 °C, if necessary through the help of grow lights. The plants are protected from influences from outside and are therefore vulnerable to, for example, the cold. This actually makes them solely suitable as indoor plants. We sell those plants in pots of 5.5 inches. Amongst the youngest plants, we've placed a few sticks.
As of May, the first terrace plants, grown in the (cold) greenhouse, become available. These plants are being nursed as hard as possible, which makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. However, the garden hydrangeas that are being nursed solely outside, withstand all weathers. Those are available from June until September.
Hydrangeas are available in several colours, among which blue. The blue hydrangea is originally pink, but colours under the influence of aluminium and a low degree of acidity in the soil. Some tips to keep the flowers blue:
Hydrangea (Hydrangea) is a genus of flowering plants from the hydrangea family (Hydrangeaceae). Spread over the world, there are about one hundred varieties, of which some occur in the wild. Especially in China, Japan and Korea lots of hydrangeas are found. In the 18th century, the plant made its way to Europe.
The pot hydrangea can be bought in numerous colours and shapes, but is divisible into two distinct flower shapes: the round bulbs (mopheads) and the flat flowers (ray florets), also called Teller types or Tellers. Characteristic for this type is the outer ring of florets that draws insects towards the fertile inner cluster of florets.
There is a hydrangea for every garden and for every interior: hydrangeas appear in shades of white, red, blue or pink. The blue types are originally pink, but colour at the right degree of acidity with the help of aluminium in the soil.
