The company is a leader in the breeding, cultivation, germination and export of Daffodils and Sonatini’s. With cultivation areas in various countries, both in the northern and southern hemispheres, fresh flower bulbs and bulb flowers of the highest quality can be offered year-round.
This quality is guaranteed by a motivated team of employees and our national and international partners.
Our cultivation areas are in the Netherlands, England, Morocco, Chile and Australia.
The constant search for innovation has led the company to introduce many new narcissus varieties and Sonatini varieties to the market.
W.F. Leenen is responsible for the international transition of the cultivation of narcissi on North seashells and works closely with the pharmaceutical industry to extract substances from the narcissi bulb for, among others, medicines and cosmetics.
W.F. Leenen & Zn BV has the goal to produce flowers completely gas-free by 2025.
Solar boilers, solar panels, and in-ground heat storage are practical examples of this.
We have been Global Gap certified since 1 March 2020 and have carried the designation “Top Grower” since January.
Since 28 March 1979, the company has been the purveyor to Keukenhof, the largest flower park in Europe.
