At our nurseries, we use the most primitive production methods while also maintaining the highest technology standards in our production of ornamental plants.
Our production process starts in the field, where a considerable part of this process takes place. We collect seeds or parts of specimen plants displaying the best properties, before multiplying them later at the nursery. This ensures that the plants adapt more easily to their respective planting sites.
The first step is to stratify the seeds so that the germination process can then begin in the case of seeds, or the rooting process can begin in the case of stem cuttings. Here, we use the most innovative technologies, ranging from acclimated greenhouses and LED lighting to carbon dioxide enrichment technologies. This process is carried out in accordance with strict protocols, while also maintaining high levels of hygiene.
During the next stage, ornamental plants gradually undergo a hardening process during which internal climatic conditions are adjusted to match external climatic conditions. This reduces possible stress on plants when suddenly exposed to different climatic conditions as they are being transplanted.
Part of this process is automated by using a machine that ensures greater efficiency and reduces the costs associated with the simplification of mechanisms facilitating the work of our collaborators.
The plants are then transplanted to larger pots and placed in outdoor production fields, where they grow until reaching the desired age in accordance with our clients’ demands. They are then fed and pruned when necessary.
Meanwhile, trees are sent to our Braga nursery, where conditions are more ideal for this type of plant. They are planted in an open field, where an innovative synthetic root containment system is used that improves root morphology and increases the transplanting time to our clients’ desired final destination for such plants.
