75 years of the “Luxembourg Horticulture Federation”
The Luxembourg Horticulture Federation was formed as the “Fédération Horticole professionnelle Luxembourgeoise” in the capital on 20 September 1931.
Most of the horticultural culture of Luxembourg comes from Luxembourg-Ville and the surrounding area. Worth mentioning are the rose growers of Limpertsberg, the market gardeners of the Kirchberg, Pfaffenthal, Mühlenbach, and Clausen areas as well as the vegetable terraces along the Alzette and Pétrusse. Today, the “Fédération Horticole Luxembourgeoise” still represents the interests of the “green industry” which includes the professional disciplines of gardeners, market-gardeners, florists, floriculturists, landscapers, as well as nursery gardeners.
Because of the globalisation of the market, the economic priority of businesses has been replaced over the years by commercial horticulture and services.
As in any other profession, the gardener seeks, in harmony with nature, an improved quality of life using green spaces both inside and outside of dwellings. Thus, the profession guarantees a positive vital energy. Together with florists, horticulturists and landscapers improve the quality of life, creating individuality and atmosphere by embellishing interior and exterior spaces.
The nursery gardener participates in the reproduction of nature by cultivating shrubs, bushes, hedges, and trees. With fruits and vegetables, the market-gardener produces food which is undoubtedly the healthiest, containing vital fibre and vitamins. With professional expertise, the gardener creatively produces “green wishes”, thus arousing emotions, love of life, and new energy.
