Environment

                                               

We are very environmentally aware from making best use of scarce resources to using natural pest control methods.

Water

We are very water efficent. Our method of growing NFT (Nutrient Film Technique) is a closed system and uses only the water the plant takes up while the water is continually pumped around the glasshouse.

Pollination

We use only GB bumble bees from BCP Certis to pollinate our plants.

Biological Control

Natural predators are used to combat pests and diseases.

Waste material

All leaves and waste from the plants is to be used in the Anaerobic Digester when it is up and running. Until then as much as possible is composted.

Heat

All sites endeavour to be as efficient with heat sources as possble-see Energy Efficiencies.
