62 years ago, Henrik Christensen's parents founded GC Planteskole in the small Danish village of Hedehusene. At first, they mainly cultivated ornamental plants in the open spaces. After relocating to Fjenneslev, which is about 50 km away, not only the company's cultivation area increased but even its product range grew steadily. After Henrik Christensen and his wife Lotte took over the plant nursery, they decided to focus more on the sales of potted plants. With great success: today the assortment comprises more than 1,200 different plant varieties. The large open spaces and greenhouses of the nursery are home to potted edible plants such as strawberry and rhubarb plants, numerous herbs, but also magnificent flowering shrubs. "This variety keeps us very busy", says Henrik Christensen with a smile on his face.
The excellent quality of Christensen's crops and ornamental plants quickly spread among customers. Now, GC Planteskole not only supplies garden centres throughout Denmark, but also far beyond the country's borders. Even customers in southern Sweden are delighted about the friendly service and the high quality standard.
