With pests under control, we need to deal with that other horticultural necessity – water. We have installed a highly efficient gantry system for irrigation. Well-proven in Germany but rarely seen in the UK, it helps produce a far more consistent crop requiring less picking through and grading at dispatch. It also significantly reduces water usage.
Last, but certainly not least, our plants. All the species we sell have been trialled and tested by us to ensure they are suitable for the UK. All our plants are potted on and managed by us – we have a custom designed machine capable of potting 14,000 plants per day. All our container plants are grown on site giving us complete control over every aspect of quality and handling.
In short, the time spent on strict supervision and rigorous daily monitoring ensures we produce healthy, robust hedging and lavender plants that will arrive at our customers in prime condition.
