Four growing zones each the size of Millennium Square are used to grow a variety of plants throughout the year. Each zone can be separated from the others to create unique environments suitable for different crops and we grow over 500 different species of plants.  There is some incredible machinery on site allowing us to pot 10,000 seedlings per hour. 

Zones one and three can hold a staggering 576 benches - just to give to you an idea each bench is the size of a small car. There are 22,000 panes of glass in the walls and roof of the nursery. Rain that falls on them is collected in 6.2 kilometers of guttering and stored in our very own lagoon before being filtered and stored in tanks that hold 40,000 watering cans of water.   

We plant 1.8 million seedlings per year - each requiring their own sowing techniques. The seeds grown won’t just produce pretty flowers but dozens of varieties of herbs, vegetables and soft fruits. Seventy years of experience has taught us exactly what we wanted from a new nursery and we couldn’t be happier. ​​​​​​​
