Jan Spijker founded our company in 1907, initially as a specialist peony-producer. After World War II his son Joop took over the reins of the business. As he was more into trade and travel, he first concentrated on the German market, quickly extending the reach of his operations to many European countries. He remained at the helm of the company for fifty years, after which he handed over the business to his sons Hans and Paul Spijker (the current management). With a history like this, S.J. Spijker B.V. is indeed the Netherlands’ senior existing, growing and flourishing producer of perennials. Even the most remarkable history is no guarantee for business survival. We believe the future depends on the quality and assortment offered, both of which we nurture with extreme care.
