We create happy plants that thrive in the hands of consumers, by creating and encouraging a strong root system. Our unique blend of peat features a coarse structure and high air content without the processed additives. Designed for water storage it excels for both the grower and consumer.
Our Kalanchoe production starts each week from unrooted cuttings arriving from overseas.The planting process is done by hand ensuring quality. Over the next 16 weeks, our team of growers will feed nutrients to the plants, and shape multiple varieties to ensure an exceptionally uniform finish.
Sell through is no accident, with genetics playing an important role. The varieties we grow are selected for superiority in several factors including: color, shape, shelf life, and ethylene resistance. By staying current in the trialing of new variety we are well positioned for the rapid release of products.
Responsible water management can be attributed to the design of our facility. Rainwater harvesting introduces fresh water into our facility, which is captured and stored throughout the greenhouse.The benching systems used within the greenhouse recapture water not absorbed by the plants and return it to storage for reuse.
High volume production comes from utilization of our facility to the max. Automation plays an important part. Plants are moved from one location to another and given 50% more room. This important step helps shape the plant and encourages fuller growth.
Economical and environmentally responsible - biological control plays an important role in our production. Our integrated pest management plan focuses on control using beneficial insects to naturally manage greenhouse predators. Good bugs eating bad bugs, a simple yet surprisingly complicated task undertaken by staff.
The systems we have in place may not be apparent but all play important roles in the efficiency of our modern facility. Conservation and responsibility have guided us to build the facility you see today.
