30 Years in Young Plant Propagation!
Pepinieries LaForet specialise in the propagation of young plants. Based in Les Sorinieres, near Nantes, this nursery was formerly a vineyard.
The nursery places strong value on its environmentally friendly production techniques. Their 16 hectare location employs 40 full time staff. In 1988 they began to trade as Pepinieries La Foret and now grow 3 million plugs per annum. This is broken down into 1.8 million as 9cm P9 and 200,000 as 11cm P9.
The nursery specializes in Ornamentals, Bamboo and Grasses. The most popular varieties are Photinia, Nandina, Agapanthus and Cordylines. Sales are primarily to nurseries (80%) and Landscapers. Many of their plants are ultimately used for hedging in small gardens.
Plug Sales to Holland & Belgium
Pepinieries LaForet will exhibit at GrootGroenPlus in Zundert this year. This is to develop further their already established client base in Holland and Belgium. There will shortly be a new website in English which will provide a description of their varieties, updated stock lists and prices once connected.
