What makes the difference in plant quality of FLORA TOSKANA in comparison to other dealers? In the following you'll find a bunch of good arguments, what distinguishes us from ebay-sellers und part-time-gardeners:

    • Betrieb - Flora Toskana

      IN POTS

      All plants are delivered in pots, e.g. in black or orange plastic-containers (only big trees may be delivered in bale). The product-specification " 3 l", "7 l", "12 l" etc. in our Online-Shop is related to the content / capacity of the pots in liters (l).

      SHEER HEIGHT

      The product-specification of e.g. "80/100 cm" refers to the plain height of the PLANT, not including the pot. The specification concerns the average plant height of the articel. By time, season and care, the height can vary slightly. In late summer and autumn the plants may be higher than declared.

      AKKLIMATISED

      Thanks to the care by Flora Toskana, the plants get acclimatised to the climate north of the Alpes, where the intensity of the sun and the temperatures differ from the plants origins.

    ADULT

    The pure height of a plant can be foolish (e.g. by cutting activities), the circumference of a stem not, because it reflects the real age of a plant. Therefore we state the circumference of the trunk in 1 m height: StU. Please note, that it's the circumference, not the radius or diameter.

    HEAVY

    The weight of our plants varies in big scale: wet pots are heavier than dry earth e.g. Therefore no definite or general indications of weight per article are possible. As a rough idea, one can calculate with 1 kg weight per liter pot-content, e.g. for a plant in a seven liters pot seven kilogramms.

    RAIN WATER

    A reservoir, that impounds 1 billion liters of rain water on the premises of FLORA TOSKANA gathers all precepetation from the glasshouse roof. The natural amount of rain water (and snow melt) is sufficient to water all plants all year round. We don't use ground-water or drinking water.

    NO HORMONS

    We don't use hormons (e.g. for growth reduction or early flowers) to influence the habit of the plants. Instead we prune them by handwork.

    BEST BASICS

    The potting area of FLORA TOSKANA shows, that we use the best soil for exotic plants (you can order it in our shop for private use). The sizes of our pots and plants are so diverging, that a potting machine would not work, we do it all by hand.

    OWN PRODUCTION

    FLORA TOSKANA is all, but not a merchant or trader, who buys its stock one day and sells it the next. We keep our plants for a long time, sometimes for many years before they change their owner.
