In the modern production site of 42,000 m² in Den Hoorn (Zuid-Holland), the diverse varieties of Lily Looks are being grown on rolling benches in an entirely automated system. The brand Lily Looks is owned by Wetering Potlilium. The potted lilies which are grown here, are intended for the European market. We also have a second location in Honselersdijk, where we can absorb the major peaks in the spring and summer months.
We take care of the transport with our own two trucks to the auction locations Honselersdijk, Bleiswijk and Aalsmeer. Of course it is also possible to buy our products straight from the nursery. Our location in Den Hoorn is near the A4 motorway.
Our plants are grown with respect for people, nature and the environment. We do everything we can to keep our environmental footprint to a minimum. The examples below are illustrative of how we try to contribute to a clean and environmentally friendly future.
The plants get rainwater that is collected in water basins. There is a closed cultivation system using roller containers with an eb band flow installation. All water that is not immediately absorbed by the plants is collected again and cleaned to be reused.
We use organic pesticides (natural enemies).
A nice piece of company history
In 2012, a second location on the ‘Poeldijksepad’ in Honselersdijk was purchased in order to be able to absorb the major peaks in the spring and summer months. The first Longiflorum in pots were delivered on a trial basis in 2019, also from the Lily Looks brand. In 2020, they had the opportunity to purchase a greenhouse adjacent to the main location in Den Hoorn. At the end of the year, this greenhouse was demolished in order to expand the current location with 1.7 hectares of new construction. The new greenhouse was ready at the end of 2021 and the planting line moved to the new location. In 2021, the Longiflorum were fully included in the range and the first potted LA were delivered on a trial basis. These are also from the own brand Lily Looks. The LA’s will be fully included in the range in 2022.
As of 2021, Wetering has been in business for 25 years !
