Institutional Presentation

Our Story 

We are a family business founded by Armindo and Augusto Gonçalves in 2006, at the ages of 32 and 30, respectively. We own our very own nurseries and are dedicated to the production of ornamental plants for professionals.

We set up our business with the aim of filling a niche in the market in which gardening companies find it difficult to meet partners that provide varied, high-quality product ranges and are prepared to undertake their business ventures. 

Although we started producing ornamental plants across a 1.5-hectare site, we now occupy 82 hectares of land across our nurseries in Sintra and Cabeceiras de Basto, with great potential to expand. 

We are market leaders in the production of ornamental plants in Portugal and It is in our nature to continue sowing the seeds of sustainable growth and embracing new challenges.
