Vegetables

The production of vegetable transplants was the initial area of concentration of the company 30 years ago and is still the most important one. As the company is an independent business, it is able to select the best varieties from the world’s best breeders in order to satisfy its customers.

The company produces an enormous range of vegetable transplants in order to cover all types that are planted in Cyprus and continuously introduces new types of vegetables and encourages growers to try them and marketers to market them.

Moreover, the company continuously tries new vegetable varieties by working closely with some key growers for 2-3 years first and then safely introduces them to the market.

Ornamentals

Solomou Nurseries Ltd have moved dynamically into the uprising and fashionable sector of ornamentals, herbs and cut-flowers and by dealing with companies like Ball Seeds, produces a very wide range of these products and continuously introduces new varieties and types of ornamentals, herbs and cut-flowers. With close contact with its clients and with regular visits abroad, the company knows the market trends and in some cases creates new market trends.

At the moment Solomou Nurseries use two kind of plug-trays for the production of these plants: the 84 plug-tray which is used by pot-growers and gardeners and the 72 plug-tray which is used by garden centres and florists for retailing as it is divided into smaller 9 plug-trays.

Seeds

Solomou Nurseries Ltd is the sole distributor of various vegetable, ornamental, cut-flower and herb seed companies including Zeraim Gedera Seeds (www.zeraimgedera.com), Semillas Fito ( www.semillasfito.com), Ergon Seed, Comptoir Paulinois and Ball Seeds (www.ballcollegrave.co.uk).

Through the years the company has formed a solid testing and distribution network for seeds. Trials for new varieties are carried over at different seasons throughout the year, in various parts of Cyprus with different climatic conditions and in co-operation with good growers. During these trials, which may last up to three years all the characteristics of the plant and its production are noted and the best varieties are chosen and marketed.

Substrate

Solomou Nurseries has been a sole agent and distributor of Shamrock from BordnaMona (www.bordnamonahorticulture.ie), known as the finest horticultural peat in the world, for over 20 years now. BordnaMona produces a wide range of peat mixtures both for wholesale (plant producers and growers, landscape and golf courses) and retailing.
