Ko Klaver

Ko Klaver is a Horticultural Product & Services provider that spends most of his time implementing new and exciting Flowerbulb & Perennial programs in the North American market through custom developed branding and merchandising lines.

Ko grew up on a flower bulb production farm in The Netherlands, and attended the Horticultural ‘Clusius College’ in Hoorn, The Netherlands. After his second year of college (1988) he signed up on a student work exchange program through Future Farmers of America. During the exchange student period he quickly became the head grower for Pettengill Farms in Salisbury, Massachusetts for the 2-years he was there, growing cut flowers from annuals, perennials and flower bulbs mostly in field and high tunnel (cold-frame) production. From 1990 through 2000 he worked in sales for Plants International, which ultimately merged into Van Bloem Gardens, selling flower bulbs & perennials to the Floriculture Industry.  Since January 2001 he has focused back into the professional growing aspect, consulting and providing Horticultural products & services to cut flower growers and potted plant growers. Ko has served on the APGA board as their Industry Liaison.
