Lugt Lisianthus is a household name, that much is clear. And that did not come out of the blue. The Lugt name has been synonymous with quality for a century. What follows is a brief history.
The year is 1920 when Pieter van der Lugt decides to start a nursery for outdoor vegetables in the open ground in Honselersdijk. Grandfather van der Lugt has been at the helm of this successful vegetable farm for almost forty years, when his son Henk takes over the company from him in 1956 and enters greenhouse horticulture for the cultivation of cucumbers, aubergines and other vegetables. Henk decides ten years later to switch from vegetables to Freesias and when his sons Peter and Hans step into the company in 1978, Van der Lugt is also well known in the Freesias. In 1988 brother Marcel also joined the company.
The Lisianthus made its appearance in 1992. At first together with the Freesia, but from 2007 onwards the brothers say goodbye to the fragrant flower in order to be able to fully immerse themselves in the Lisianthus. While waving goodbye to the Freesia, they welcome Richard to the company. With the arrival of Richard, Peter's son, the company is complete in its current form.
Van der Lugt Lisianthus opened a second location in 's Gravenzande as early as 1982. Initially, the brothers can handle these two locations perfectly, but when the switch to Lisianthus is made, the company starts to grow fast.
The location in 's Gravenzande will close in 2020. At the same time, a new, larger location will be opened in Monster. The new greenhouse and shed were built according to the latest insights in modern and responsible cultivation and entrepreneurship. Gebr. with the opening of the new location, van der Lugt will officially become Lugt Lisianthus.
Few flowers are more beautiful than the Lisianthus. This versatile flower can be used for all your clients' special occasions from weddings to funerals.
The Lisianthus can convey emotions where words are not enough and our grower Lugt grows the most beautiful.

Smarter, better, bigger, greener. You don't just become the best. Everything is needed for that. Of course hard work, a positive attitude and the right people. But also an eye for innovation where necessary and a heart for people and the environment. Lugt Lisianthus combines all those facets of circular thinking in such a way that they can deliver maximum quality with minimal impact on the environment. In fact, they go a step further and even contribute to a better world.
Everything was taken into account when building their greenhouse in Monster. Their flowers are grown according to the principles of The New Cultivation and use all CO2 they produce as food for the plants. We even buy extra CO2, which also limits the emissions of other companies.
And not only the environment is high on the agenda at Lugt Lisianthus. They are also careful with their people. All machines, paths and spaces are extra spacious and equipped with the latest techniques to help ease the work. In the greenhouses, in addition to considerable energy savings, 2,800 LED lamps also provide a cooler greenhouse.
Everything at Lugt Lisianthus is focused on the best and they therefore focus on the most recent techniques and the latest insights. Below is an overview of the most important things that make Lugt Lisianthus the innovator in Lisianthusland.
The New Growing
Limiting energy consumption and still the best results. That is Het Nieuwe Telen (HNT) in a nutshell. HNT is a way to cultivate using all available physical knowledge. In this way it is possible to optimally control things such as temperature, (air) humidity, CO2 dosing and light. HNT ensures that the climate in the greenhouse remains as even as possible and that almost none of the energy is lost. And also that the Lisianthus gets the right resources at the right time to arrive at the quality for which Lugt Lisianthus is known.
One of the pillars of the circular policy pursued by Lugt Lisianthus. LED lamps use much less power, but at the same time provide more light. In addition, the lamps themselves last longer and therefore need to be replaced less often and the pink light they produce is better for the growth of the Lisianthus. Also important: LED lamps do not get nearly as hot as traditional lighting. The 2800 LED lamps hanging at Lugt Lisianthus thus ensure a noticeably cooler greenhouse. And that is very nice for our staff. Everyone wins with LED.
Lugt Lisianthus generates electricity itself. And that's a smart move, because our own electricity has more than just electricity. Generating electricity releases a lot of heat. In a normal power plant, that heat counts as waste. But Lugt Lisianthus uses that heat for the greenhouse and ensures that virtually nothing is lost.
Lugt Lisianthus contributes to less CO2 emissions. Not only do they use all CO2 that remains when generating the energy, they even buy extra CO2 from other companies. In this way, we are not only doing good ourselves, but we are also helping others to reduce their ecological footprint.
Lugt Lisianthus does have a very wide range of 24 different varieties. They naturally have the classic Rosita, which is available in many different colors. But they are also constantly busy developing new and surprising varieties.
New in their range is, for example, the Cotton Candy, a soft pink flower that you would like to treat everyone with. But they also have new Croma Champagne. The name says it all, a champagne-colored Lisianthus that makes a party every day.
