“We come from a rich heritage of raising flowers. ”
-Nick Branderhorst, owner
Nick’s Greenhouse was opened in 1953 by Nick, Sr. and Nellie Branderhorst, first generation immigrants from the Netherlands. They built their business from the ground up, growing it into the thriving business it is today, 65 years later.
Nick Branderhorst, Jr. and his wife, Lynn, the current owners, pride themselves in continuing the legacy left by his parents of growing healthy, beautiful flowers and hearty plants. Nick uses growing strategies learned by his father and mother in the Netherlands and passed on to him to nurture his plants to their fullest potential. Nick Jr. is one of the last Dutch growers in Iowa.
Nick’s Greenhouse and Flower Shop is a strong family business with deep Dutch roots, growing to meet the needs of the community of Pella and surrounding areas.
THE ONES WHO STARTED IT ALL!
“Thirty-five years ago I came to America with $2.65 in my pocket. I had no education. Now I am 62 years old, and I am independent.”
