Van Lier Nurseries:

"NZ: "Only the best quality makes it to market"

Van Lier Nurseries are one of the largest producers of fresh cut roses in New Zealand and have been doing so since 1967. This means that at some stage in your life, or in the life of your parents, or even in the life of their parents, a Van Lier Nurseries grown flower will have been purchased and enjoyed through one of many NZ retailers.

But the company is not just about roses, they have Alstroemeria as well. The long standing family run business that are well known for their cut flower propagation and cultivation grow a myriad of different flowers throughout their nurseries in Massey and Riverhead, Auckland.

Their Alstreomeria lines (while not as expansive as their roses) carry the same value and promise that all Van Lier products do: only the best quality makes it to market. Through a stringent quality control process, four main checks are done to ensure that only the best flowers leave their nurseries and make it out to the NZ consumer via flower retailers.

They specialise in a new variety of Alstroemeria to the NZ market called: Florinca. Florinca is a type of ‘spray Alstroemeria’ that has multiple bracts and blooms per stem, giving it a ‘spray effect’ of flower heads. This new type of Alstroemeria works in all flower settings, from bouquets to grand wedding arrangements it adds height, colour and impact. Florinca from Van Lier Nurseries comes in two colours: Charmelia (Light Pink) and Paradiso (White).
