We produce young plants in various sizes. Our standard tray units hold 100 (3.2cm) and 50 (4.8cm) plug cells and 18 (9cm) liners and our minimum order quantity is just 10 trays.
Where necessary, we pinch most of our varieties during the weaning phase in order to promote uniformity and encourage growth from the base of the plant canopy. This will lead to higher quality finished plants without our customers having to pinch during the early stages of production.

Delivery ServicesWe deliver our products all over the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as into mainland Europe. Delivery of our trays is often by Danish (CC) trolleys on freight lorries or by pallet. We can also deliver using our unique box method, using environmentally friendly recycled cardboard. In this case, we use a business courier service.
Labels are available for all catalogue varieties and are produced in midi and extra large sizes. The order form states M or XL to show the size available for each variety. Labels are delivered with your plant delivery unless a specific label order is received.
Cash and Carry Open between March and AugustOpen between March and August between 9am - 4pm Mon-Fri. This is an ideal opportunity to pick from some whole and many part trays from production excess. The cash and carry works like a pick and mix, where you fill trays with your own selection of plugs from what is available in the sale bay. Its best to call ahead first to let us know youre planning to visit. We are unable to generate invoices after 4pm so please arrive in plenty of time. This service only available to bona fide growers and there is a minimum sale of £100 plus VAT per visit.
Our production facilities and methods are continually improving and techniques used are socially and environmentally responsible. We strive to produce the best quality plug plants in a timely fashion without pest or disease. Accreditation to the British Ornamental Plant Producers (BOPP) scheme ensures that we continue to surpass industry standards.
We source many of our initial plants from virus indexed, clean material. This helps to ensure that propagation and subsequent production is as trouble free as possible. We produce motherstock which provides our cuttings for insertion into our cellular plug trays. We also produce some varieties from seed.
