‘. . . 1,000,000 plants exported every year to 16 countries worldwide, 150 hectares of nursery production traditional and potted plants . . .
The association and strategic alliance forged with this prestigious award winning company stretches back over 25 years. Zelari themselves have been active in the production, sale and distribution of ‘home grown’ plants for over 50 years and now service their extensive client base from their 150 hectare estate in Tuscany.
Production of young Mediterranean plants and large specimen trees, citrus, flowering plants and olive trees takes up 110 hectares of traditional nursery; the remaining areas are set aside to accommodate plants in containers ready for despatch. Continuous monitoring of plants in the ground enables them to plan short term production and at the same time offer uniform plants in volume.
They grow, supply and distribute in excess of 1 million plants worldwide each year.
Within the facility in London, CZ have set up a dedicated area to showcase the Zelari range for all Option 1 sales and this complements the larger sample house set up within the Zelari grounds in Pistoia.
In helping develop, design and invest in these facilities, CZ’s aim is to demonstrate that the offerings are of the highest quality. We believe these areas represent the nucleus of the stock range for the majority of nurseries and garden centres we regularly supply either from our London base or via direct shipment arrangements from Italy.
The benefits of these showrooms are that our clients are able to view plants in differing sizes together thus making the whole ordering process more efficient and pleasurable. The ultimate effect is to shorten the length of time plant buyers are absent from their businesses.
