Our green products have been grown with the greatest possible care. Special attention is paid to the development and growth from root to plant.
This way you can be sure that the products you bring into your home are in excellent health.
The statutory guarantee applies to all items you buy from us. Statutory guarantee means that a product is or must do what the consumer can reasonably expect it to be or do. Some products are also covered by a manufacturer's guarantee.
- Up to 5 years growth and flowering guarantee
On all perennial winter hardy plants, shrubs, trees, roses and hedges you receive a 5-year growth and flowering guarantee. This is because nature needs more time to bring these products to full maturity.

On all seeds, bulbs, tubers, potted plants and annual plants you receive a 1-year growth and flowering guarantee. The guarantee on these products runs from the moment of purchase until the end of the first flowering period of the product.
Damage to your products caused by frost (if you leave a green product that is not frost-resistant outside in the frost) is not covered by the guarantee.
Quality Flower Bulbs from Bakker.com
Bloembollen keuringsdienst [Dutch Flower Bulb Inspection Service] and Nederlandse Algemene keuringsdienst [Dutch General Inspection Service]
All flower bulbs and tubers, such as tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocuses, have been inspected by either the Dutch Flower Bulb Inspection Service (BKD) or by the Dutch General Inspection Service (NAK). This inspection takes place in the field at the grower. The bulbs must be healthy and true to variety in order to be approved. If they fulfil all the requirements they will receive a certificate. This certificate guarantees the quality of the product. This certificate is required for export.
Stichting Keurmerk Bloembollen [Dutch Bulbs Quality Mark Foundation]
For many years in a row, Bakker.com flower bulbs have been awarded the highest possible A status by the Dutch Stichting Keurmerk Bloembollen Holland [Dutch Holland Bulbs Quality Mark Foundation].
Bakker is a member of the Stichting Keurmerk Bloembollen [Dutch Bulbs Quality Mark Foundation] and is therefore among the best suppliers of bulbs and perennials. All delivered flower bulbs and perennials are of such high quality that we give our customers a 100% flowering guarantee.
The bulbs are evaluated for quality, species and colour correctness, size and health, among other things. This way we can guarantee you that the flower bulbs you order from Bakker.com will flower, and we also give a growth and flowering guarantee for up to 1 year for this product.
The quality of trees and shrubs
We supply 2 groups of trees and shrubs. Rich-soil products and the trees and shrubs grown in containers.
Rich-soil products are taken from the field at the horticulturist’s and cleaned. These woody crops are then at rest and are stored in cold storage at the right temperature and humidity. The temperature in cold storage differs per plant species and is the most optimal temperature for the resting stage of the species. The intention is that these crops will only return to growth at the customer.
Trees and shrubs in containers are stored at the horticulturist under the best possible conditions, until these products are ordered. They are then shipped to Bakker and delivered to the customers as soon as possible. The advantage of these trees and shrubs in a container is that they can be planted all year long. Here, too, quality checks are always carried out by Bakker throughout the entire storage procedure.
Quality of the perennials
We deliver two types of perennials: field plants and plants grown in containers.
Field plants are taken from the field at the horticulturist’s and cleaned. These crops are then at rest and are stored in cold storage at the right temperature and humidity.
Plants grown in containers are stored at the horticulturist under the best possible conditions, until the plants are ordered. They are then shipped to Bakker and delivered to the customers, as soon as possible. The advantage of these plants is that they can be planted all year long.
Quality of our seeds
The seeds are certified by NAK Horticulture, which is Nederlandse Algemene Keuringsdienst voor Tuinbouwproducten, [Dutch General Inspection Service for Horticultural Products], the official authority in the Netherlands that inspects seeds and carried out this inspection for all seed companies.
The process of seed extraction is a time-consuming and accurate process. Our specially selected seed supplier is certified to do this. The seeds are dried and stripped of all kinds of loose plant material, after which it is packed.
The seeds are stored at the right storage temperature and humidity for each species. Testing of germination capacity is carried out regularly, so that the best quality can always be delivered. The seeds supplied by Bakker therefore fulfil the high requirements of germination capacity retention and varietal purity. The seeds are delivered in paper bags and labelled.
