All our roses are hosted on top-graft propagation units. The propagation stage takes between 6 to 8 weeks and thereafter the plants are moved to covered greenhouses where they are planted in beds. These plants are irrigated using a fully automated drip irrigation system.
The control of temperature and humidity in the greenhouse is very important in the growing process and is controlled by automated movable vents and fans.
Planting & Harvesting Process
All our roses are produced in greenhouses to protect them from rain, wind and extreme temperatures. When the roses reach their correct cut stage they are harvested and placed in bundles of stems. These bundles are then wrapped in nets and the nets are placed in buckets, which contain the post-harvest solution. These are then transported to the grading hall by the farm’s rail system where the post-harvest process takes place.
