• We use the best quality seeds from the world’s top breeders. Our suppliers include Ball Colegrave of California, Sakata of Japan and the Dutch suppliers Florensis and Syngenta.

 
We sow 85% of our own seed. We use a drum seeder and a natural seeder, which allow us better control of the quality of our crop.
 
•In our nursery we operate programmed pest and disease control, geared to the requirements of each individual crop. Thorough pest and disease control checks are carried
out on a regular cycle.
 
Growth regulators are used, to control crop uniformity.
 
A controlled release fertiliser, such as Osmocote is used in most of our
products, to improve shelf life and other properties.

 
• In our nursery the product is hardened off in the correct conditions pre-planting, ensuring each plant is robust and strong.

 
•We can grow our bedding and pot plants in peat based, peat reduced and peat free compost. Different management techniques are required for each of these, to deliver the quality of product required by customers who wish to specify the level of peat to be used in the process.

 
• Our nursery uses the latest technology for plant growing. We are subscribers to the Horticultural Development Council and make regular visits to seed and system suppliers to ensure we are aware of the latest developments.

 
• Across our nursery staff, we have developed a huge bank of skill, knowledge and expertise. We combine the two fundamental sources of knowledge - experience and technical education – and keep this current by attendance at seminars and visits to the leading seed suppliers.
