The 2004 was a breakthrough year for our business. We expanded the nursery with a new facility in Boronów, 20 km from the previous location. Thanks to the beneficial economic situation and EU funds, we were able to quickly launch production at the new location. At that time, we made the final decision that the nursery would specialize in grafting firs, spruces and pines. With a large area at our disposal, we were able to introduce field cultivation of conifers and selected species of alley trees. We spent the subsequent years on perfecting our portfolio – we expanded it with new variety and larger plant sizes. We also increased the export volume, first to the east, and recently also to old EU states.
This is how the beginnings looked
Deciduous plant containers
The first nursery with the area of 3 ha is situated at the south-western peripheries of Częstochowa. It is fully engaged in container production and plastic tunnels. Here, we cultivate plants in containers for the local market, mainly deciduous stubs and conifers, propagated by cuttings. Our office that handles the entire company’s affairs is also situated in Częstochowa. Wholesale customers can learn about the specialized production of grafted plants at the display area for exemplary plants.
There is a retail plant sales outlet at the nursery in Częstochowa. Here, we invite customers searching for plants for their private gardens. A part of the area is dedicated to a garden that is available to customers.
The new nursery is situated in Boronów, Lubliniec County. It spans 18.5 ha of agricultural area, including 2.5 ha of a pond made by the accumulation of water in the river Liswarta. Currently, container production takes up 1.6 ha, while field production takes up 5 ha. A part of plants in containers is cultivated in modern plastic tunnels. The remaining area covers typical agricultural fields that provide crop rotation. A part of the area was dedicated to a 4-ha collection garden. Execution of this project is a great challenge.
Production is divided into several branches. There, we propagate firs, spruces, pines and larches by grafting. An important branch is the production of young plants and grafted plants in 2-3 litre containers, offered as intermediate products to other nurseries. The remaining branches include standard plants in 5-20 litre containers and XXL-size plants – splendid specimens in very large containers with volumes reaching 160 litres. Field production covers larger conifers and alley trees.
