A piece of history

The company was founded in 1960 by Mr. Peerts. From the very beginning, it has specialized in the cultivation of Azalea, in accordance with its many years of experience and tradition in this azalea region.

In 1997, Kurt Peerts took over the leadership of his father and carried out thorough innovations in the company. New greenhouses and a new cold store were added to slow down the flowering process.

19 years later, in 2016, the horticultural business moved to Lochristi. New container fields and greenhouses were constructed. Finally, the company was upgraded in terms of technology.

OUR QUALITY

We can guarantee our excellent quality because we have no less than 50 years of experience on the one hand and our (high) technological gadgets on the other hand. For example, we know the exact temperature and humidity in every greenhouse and on every container field.

We also have access to the outside temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, solar radiation and we have a rain detector.

We also have a cold store to slow down the flowering and a forgery to stimulate the flowering. This makes it possible to supply azaleas continuously and flexibly at the desired flowering stage.

DURABILITY

Peerts Horticulture attaches great importance to nature.

Once we have watered the plants, the lost irrigation water goes to an artificial pond with a storage capacity of approximately 900 000 liters. In this way we can reuse the water.

In addition, we have installed a number of solar panels that generate green energy on sunny days.
