Our ideal

“If you stop improving, you will soon stop being any good.”
Alfred Herrhausen

We always want to get better at what we do, which is why our collections are constantly changing. New varieties and shapes complement old favourites. We are looking for plants that excite and enthuse, and hope that our customers will share this enthusiasm.

We test all plants thoroughly at our nursery in Bad Zwischenahn before considering including them in our collections. We are looking for plants with a certain something: character, quality, inner strength. Finding such plants is not easy and we reject many candidates before accepting a new ornamental tree or shrub into our range.

We are also careful not to follow short term trends but to cater for tastes that will last for more than a single season – as of course our plants will.

Protection of the environment and careful use of resources are integral to the way we work. Sustainability has been a Stöckmann family value for generations.

We would welcome an opportunity to convince you of the quality of our products in person. Come and see us whenever you like.
