Premier Plants propagate a wide variety of salad and vegetable plants ranging from the many different types of lettuce to cauliflowers, cabbages, sprouts and even more specialised crops like leeks, pumpkins, celery and celeriac. There are too many to list. Why not contact us and find out more.

We hold ourselves to the highest standards and the conventional crops follow an effective spray programme designed around the needs of our customers to achieve the best start possible. Our experienced team are kept up to date with all the latest chemicals and techniques by some of the county's leading agronomists. We offer full traceability throughout, making available to all our customers chemical application records for each individual batch grown.

Premier Plant Producers use our own fleet of lorries and experienced drivers who know how important their cargo is to our customers and ensure that plants are delivered on time in good condition and any empty trays and boxes are collected.

 

3.8 cm blocks are the smallest block size that we can produce. This block size is often used by customers who are based some distance from our site so that they may get more plants per delivery therefore reducing transport costs.

6.0 cm blocks - These are available over the winter and are the largest pressed block that we produce. They are designed to produce a larger plant that will in turn increase winter production.
