The enterprise

The majority of our 65 hectare farm in Pinneberg is used for forest nursery production. The remaining area is used for regeneration and constantly alternates with the soil to be cultivated.


Through constant development, we have access to the most modern buildings and machines, which facilitate our work and guarantee the freshness of the plants.

All plants are sorted in a special designed hall to protect them from sun and wind. Loading also takes place in a hall to protect them from dehydration.


The total size of the hall area for sorting, loading and seed processing is approx. 1,400 m², plus a cold store or deep-freeze store for seed storage of approx. 830 m³.

Andreas und Armin Vogt


All members of the family are involved in our business. In addition, we have 15 employees and during the main season, when the plants are delivered, round about 20 seasonal workers.

Additionally to plant delivery with our own vehicles, we also offer services such as soil preparation, fence construction and planting by hand or machine.

Here in Pinneberg we have a balanced climate with mild winters and cool summers.
The light soils of the Holstein nursery area and the relatively high humidity are well suited for growing plants, especially forest shrubs.


Schleswig Holsteinische nurseries co-produce for others!

Many of the Holstein nurseries’ customers are other nurseries that make use of our location advantages, at least for young plant cultivation such as outdoor sowing. They have their desired products sown in Schleswig Holstein and then take over the plants after one or two years for further cultivation.

Deeply rooted.

The roots of our forest nursery go back more than 130 years. From the very beginning, the business has been firmly in family hands and remains so today. We are happy to look back on our history together with you.
