We are using solar power to cover part of our energy requirements. The entire south facing aspect of our recent extension is covered with the latest technology solar panels, contributing significantly to our energy needs, with clean and sustainable energy
Green Energy (CHP)
We also operate a 3 MW CHP scheme (Combined heat & power) where we buy gas to generate electricity which is sold to the grid, whilst simultaneously using the by products of this operation , heat and Co2, in our nursery to the benefit of our crops.
Since 2016, we have added to our transport tenders the requirement for the offset of all the CO2 emissions produced while carrying our products. 90% of our imported products are currently under neutral emissions transport, with a view to increase this to 100% in the next years.

We are recycling plastic, wood and paper separately, whilst at the same time we are minimising the use of non-recyclable plastic in our products, working closely with our customers and actively supporting all relevant initiatives. We are also handling organic waste in an environmental friendly way.
