At August 16th my father and best friend Peter Smits passed away, he was 70 years old.
He died because of a major brain haemorrhage.
Plants were a great passion for him, he worked at my nursery for many years, it's a very big loss for me that he's no longer among us.
Due my great honour to him I decided to name my Pinetum after him, since today it's the Peter Pinetum.
