As a little man, I became interested in everything that lives such as insects and special plants at an early age. At an early stage I started improving plants through breeding. We are proud of the more than 60 new varieties from our nursery and many new varieties are on the way. In order to find some relaxation in this busy life, I keep busy with honey bees and marathon canoe / Surfski sailing in my spare time.
