Most of our beds consist of gravel over Mypex, complete with concrete roadways for easy access. We also have poly tunnels which provide protection from the weather as well as shade tunnels to help harden off plants ready for sale.
100% of our irrigation is provided by our 2 reservoirs distributed via a pressure system to overhead irrigators. All run off is collected and filtered back into the reservoirs using both sand filters and natural Norfolk Reeds. All water is treated using chlorine before is it used to prevent the build- up of silicates and harmful pathogens.
We use a Javo potting machine for most of our 9cm, 2 Litre and 5 Litre pots, only hand potting where necessary. Peat reduced compost is delivered in bulk, ready mixed with 50% bark. Testing with peat free compost is continuing on a bigger scale every year but due to our vast range it will take a few years before we are fully peat free.
