Solomou nurseries produce a very wide range of vegetables, grafted vegetables, ornamentals, herbs salads and cut-flowers.
Vegetable transplant production was the initial area of concentration of the company, 30 years ago and is still the most important one. The company produces a full range of vegetable transplants for professional growers and garden centres all over Cyprus.
Grafted tomatoes, watermelons, melons and aubergines were introduced in the Cyprus horticultural sector by Solomou Nurseries and are now used extensively all over Cyprus. Various tested varieties of scion and rootstock are used in order to suit the various needs of growers and new, improved varieties are tested and introduced continuously.
Solomou Nurseries have moved dynamically in the last few years into the sector of ornamentals, herbs and cut-flowers and by dealing with some of the biggest names of ornamental seed companies, is at the moment producing a very wide range of high quality transplants. The company tries along with close contact with its clients to stay ahead of market trends and even in some cases create market trends by introducing new products.
The relatively new plug system of producing transplants has many advantages over older methods, as each plant is grown in its own cell, giving very uniform plants, intact root system when they are removed, which grow away quickly and evenly. Solomou Nurseries gap up the plug trays to 100% to ensure that clients receive all the cells they are paying for and so that plants are more uniform.
The company's most recent introduction in the market is fresh pot herbs and salads. The products are supplied to supermarkets and garden centres, sleeved or un-sleeved with labelling, barcoding and information how to take care of the product. Our clients have the option of own branding or to use our brand.
Solomou Nurserie's fresh pot herbs and salads can be grown and harvested from a planter-box on your window sill for continual cutting and use, out on the patio for easy kitchen access, or allowed to thrive by incorporating them into your herb and vegie garden. Available in around 15 different culinary flavours and aromas, they are selected for the home gardener/chef to enjoy convenient, high quality, home-grown herbs with a perpetual life.
Like all things good and healthy, fresh is best and herbs provide their best taste, aroma and therapeutic values when consumed fresh from the living plant.
Our pot herb and salad nursery aims to produce superior quality pot herbs every day. This means the best tasting pot herbs with the best possible home life produced with the minimum impact upon the environment. To achieve this we use a range of growing techniques which replicate each of the plant's favoured, natural growing conditions. We make use of natural pest controls to ensure the products are chemical-free.
