Plants in polybag
Delivered via land transport only. Customers should arrange for their own land transport for collection.
The tertiary hardened plants in polybag are ready for field planting.

Young plants in Jiffy
Plant and grow them in polybag for about 4-6 weeks and gradually reduce the shading intensity. Stronger plants will establish much quicker in the field.
Alternatively, put them in tray for 1-2 weeks then plant them in the field with shading. Gradually adapt to full sunlight over time.
