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.
