Cut flowers have special demands when it comes to the substrates the plants grow in. Growers want to achieve a large beautiful production of flowers and to be able to harvest rather “heavy” branches, because this determines their return. Our sales advisers help growers to determine the best mixtures for their situation. We don’t only look at the type of plant a grower is cultivating. We also check the circumstances the plants grow in and growing methods the grower uses. Substrates will be customised to fit the exact needs of the grower and the plants.
BVB Substrates has a lot of experience in customising mixtures for various crops such as carnation, calla, gerbera, cymbidium, anthurium, statice, bouvardia and roses. Below is a small selection of the various applications from our range. This is certainly not a complete list, but gives a good indication of our knowledge and possibilities. Feel free to ask our sales advisors about the optimal substrate for your cut flowers.
