Armor Multiplants (nurseries) was established near the northe Brittany coast in 1986 and is now one of France's foremost young plant producers. The region's temperate climate has encouraged us to develop a range of more than 1200 ornamental varieties in shurbs, grasses, climbers, palms and perennial plants. Around 4 millons plants (plugs suppliers) are now produced annually under 3 ha of glass and polythene. The nursery has 4.5 ha of mother plants and new and worthwhile garden plants are regularly trialled and added to the list.
At Armor, quality is no less impotant then range : regular trimming produces strong bushy plants, ideal for potting straight into 2 or 3 L. These "jumbo plugs", mainly 4, 5, 6, and 7cm are then despatched to growers throughout Europe in purpose-built, non-returnable wooden crates during the main potting season of March, April and May.
Great care is taken to ensure that cultivars are supplied true to name. Barcode labels (as illustrated) are firmly attached to every plug tray to ensure full traceability and to minimise any risk of mix-ups, either during despatch or subsequent potting on.
