Bordon Hill Nurseries Ltd. are a high volume producer of wholesale ornamental plants. They specialise in the production of young plug plants from seed and cuttings for the commercial trade and use a wide variety of process technology enabling them to benefit from an unsurpassed level of quality control. The nursery’s entire production process is controlled by sophisticated IT systems allowing them to be very adaptable to changing production methods and to changes in market dynamics.
During our visit we will be visiting the sowing area, viewing the gapping and transplanting processes and hearing about germination and growing on. Our tour will then visit the nursery’s one million gallon reservoir which collects all of the roof water before it is fed through reed beds to minimise nitrate and other nutrient loss into ground water. All water that is used in the cleaning process for growing equipment is finally channelled to a BioBed. Here any chemicals are broken down and rendered harmless by carefully maintained bacteria.
At the end of our tour we will be visiting the nursery canteen for refreshments.
