Specialty productsThis nursery specializes in the following products:
Seedlings for summer planting. We offer custom-growing programs that provide reliable, well-conditioned seedlings for summer planting.
- 2+0 stock types. We grow these seedlings at our southern BC nurseries, Harrop and Campbell River on Vancouver Island, where favorable climatic conditions and consistent snow cover (Harrop) minimize overwintering risks and provide ideal growing environments. These robust, well-balanced seedlings are economical and ideally suited to sites subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press. They are typically used for summer and fall planting on productive sites where moisture is not limiting, but can also be used for spring planting if grown in large containers.
- Difficult-to-grow species. We have developed expertise in growing quality crops of difficult-to-grow species such as subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa).
- Energy crops. We grow woody biomass crops and, through our subsidiary, Bionera Resources, provide crop cuttings, project management and advisory services for high-performance energy crops.
