Your source for perennial concepts

What we do

We develop and implement plant concepts. We provide constant assistance  to the nurseries and garden centres for optimal use of the concepts. C.o.N. is the link between production (nurseries) and retail (garden centres) and thereby looks after the various different marketing activities. C.o.N.’s main objective is to optimize  the profits of the  plant sales,  by a concept  approach.

The introduction of concepts reduces costs and increases profit levels and efficiency.

What is V.I.P.S.

V.I.P.S. stands for a  unique sales concept for the basic assortment of the perennials at garden centres. The specially developed presentation tables are a distinguishing feature within the V.I.P.S. concept. The modern customer is interested in  the various application possibilities. That is why the V.I.P.S. plants are presented on the tables as part of a theme.  The large information panels are centrally positioned on the tables, with photographs measuring 30  or 60 cm in width! As the plants are photographed when they are visually most attractive, the perennials  department will remain the eye catcher of your outdoor department outside of the flowering season.

Nursery for V.I.P.S.

John van Oosterwijck B.V. is the nursery that grows the perennials for the V.I.P.S. concept. This very modern nursery is specially designed to provide the best possible quality. V.I.P.S plants are strong because of the focus on the development of the root system. The root system is the base of the perennials. Increasingly use is made of biological plant enhancers. As a result, the plants are much more resilient, and that saves the environment. V.I.P.S. plants must be most beautiful with the consumer in the garden, that is our starting point.
