Our plant nursery is a small one run by just two people. About a third of the nursery is dedicated to rosemaries. The National Collection has its own dedicated polytunnel and we use half of our largest tunnel for producing rosemaries for sale.
Located in west Wales, within sight of the sea, we have a generally mild climate with not too much rain. Even so, the polytunnels are needed to provide shelter from the worst of the winter wet!
Some of the original collection are growing outdoors. These large plants provide most of the cuttings we use to propagate rosemaries. Every year we take more than 1000 cuttings just to preserve the National Collection!
