Cultivated Foliage

Over the last 16 years, we have endured tedious trial and error to determine which products are best suited to our unique climate, resulting in a wide range of cultivated foliages. We currently have over 350 acres in full production under the company's control, with a conveyor of new products continually being put into the ground. Working with the Irish Government, horticultural experts and our customers we are trialling a range of new species documenting growth, susceptibility to disease and frost, vase life, aesthetic compatibility, colour, scent, volume and, of course, cost. Only the best will be put forward for our expansion programme.

Eucalyptus parvifolia
