From small shoots

Horticultural plants start as seeds, cuttings, spores, or bulbs.
In the nurseries they become fragile shoots and
careful tending prepares them for the fields.
Add sun, soil, fertiliser and water, together with
professional expertise, and the fields of horticultural
plenty ripen ready for the harvest. It is intense,
sophisticated and hard work. Breeding and
selection of the most desired plants makes
sure that they are robust and most suited to the
environment and to specific production methods.
