Are regularly checked, we are fighting a biological way against major parasites such as Rhynchophorus ferrugineus and Paysandisia Archon. We guarantee all our plants with a plant passport.
Our palms are resulting from a regional culture. Most are in the region of Alicante, more rare species are imported from abroad.
Our support culture is a mixture composed of peat (for water retention), mulching (for organic matter) light topsoil (for good fixation of rootlets) and coir.
We supply our palms as a well-developed root system, so, once in place in your garden, the plants raizaran for several years.
