Owner, Dennis Van Gorp

Dennis has been around plants and growing things for much of his life, beginning on the farm of his childhood. As he grew older, he worked and had ownership of De Jong Greenhouses, a wholesale potted plant business, for many years. Eventually, his passions and expertise led him to purchase De Bloemen Hof which now called The Flower Court Garden Center .


Manager, Jill De Vries

As Dennis’ daughter, Jill grew up immersed in the world of gardening, plants, floral arranging and landscaping. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business and has obtained the coveted “Proven Winners” certification.
