Van de Wetering Greenhouses, a longtime producer of tulips that line Park Avenue, was recently featured in the New York Times. Peter Van de Wetering, 82, opened the North Fork nursery in 1958, and soon after won a commission to plant 10,000 daffodils at United Nations Plaza, according to the Times article.

Mr. Van de Wetering’s son, Anton, now runs most of the day-to-day operation of the business.
