Most of us are curious creatures, we like to know how it is put together or the recipe behind things. Join Melissa as she endeavours to find out how the plants your see in your local garden centre grow from seed to plant.


  • The plant propagation facility is like a birthing centre for plants, they are bred for better germination, more vigor and stand out performance in the garden.
  • The seeding machine separates and sows the individual seeds into plug trays filled with peat.
