Our Open Ground team look after around 140 acres of our field-grown, bare-rooted perennials. The plants themselves are planted by either a bare root or module planter or dibbling machine.
Your smaller bare root orders will be dug manually and larger orders are lifted by machine.
Weed control is an important part of our production process but so are maintenance of field margins and crop rotation.
Many of our plants related to species targeted by herbicides which is why we employ tractor and hand hoeing instead.
We also rotate our fields with arable crops allowing us to use different herbicides to clean the land.
Irrigation is provided by three boreholes and our on-site reservoir distributed via hydrants.
