Along with modern production facilities, we also have a high quality social- and office premises as well as a beautiful winter garden.
Our company wants to participate in the protection of the Earth’s living conditions and therefore we aim to take the environment into account.
The heat needed is produced by woodchips and the third part of the electrical energy is purchased as bioenergy.
With our closed irrigation system we save water and fertilizer to approx. 70% compared to an open irrigation system. Recycling the irrigation water minimizes the consumption of water and nutrients. In a closed system, nutrients cannot drift into the wild.
Pest control is carried out almost entirely by biological methods.
With our automatic energy- and blackout curtains we can get the timing of flowering precisely right and have the highest achievable energy savings. The growth lights allow us to cultivate all year round.
Our goal is simple to produce high quality potted plants for Finnish consumers with skilled people and modern manufacturing process with minimal impact on the environment.
