PORTA NOVA, 115 YEARS IN HORTICULTURE
Porta Nova is a rose nursery that specializes in cultivating top quality red roses. The company was created as a result of a merger of three rose nurseries by the names of Aad Luijk, Leon Dukker and Nico van Vuuren. These three families have been working passionately on a truly Dutch product for many years already and the base for Porta Nova was already laid 115 years ago when the families Luijk and Dukker first became involved in horticulture during the 1800s.
At Porta Nova, we focus completely on quality and we strive to grow the best red roses in the world. This focus is reflected in all aspects of our operations and it leads to a continuous process of improvement involving both our products and the organisation.
Since October 2013 we have “De Climator” cooling and heating system available at both of our locations and we invested in obtaining higher levels of light, which has helped us to raise quality to the highest possible level.
Porta Nova places great emphasis on the quality of our Red Naomi roses and we have sustainable and socially responsible business practices high on our agenda. At our newest location we only use green energy and the pesticides we use are almost exclusively organic. We strive to obtain the lowest carbon footprint per rose.
