Relocation to Enhance Landscape Sales
Relocation to Enhance Landscape Sales
Boweco are delighted to confirm their relocation in Schellebelle, Belgium. One of the original members of the Boweco Group has retired and their former premises now provide a new headquarters for this leading collection of plant nurseries.
Existing landscape clients and wholesalers in Austria will be managed from this new location which holds one hectare of container-grown stock.
From Garden Shrubs to Avenue Trees
Boweco are a group of select nurseries from the Wetteren area of Belgium. They develop and supply a range of cultivars and plant material for both wholesale nurseries, garden centres and major landscape schemes.
Leading Source of Plant Supply
Boweco brings together a wide assortment of outdoor nursery stock and combines generations of production skills with both efficient sales and transport facilities.
The group offers hardy nursery stock from their own 80 ha open field production and 16 ha container grown plants.
'Choco & Pink' introduced for2020!
Boweco have introduced a new Rhododendron variety 'Choco & Pink' for 2020.
This was launched by the Best Select group and Boweco will sell this new Cultivar in the U.K. and Southern Ireland. 'Choco & Pink' won a Silver Medal last year at Plantarium.
This is an eye-catching new cultivar, mostly due to his colour contrast with young shoots and dark foliage. Besides this stunning foliage the cultivar also has a beautiful and rich pink flowering.
It was unveiled as the 2020 Boweco Introduction for the U.K. Market.
