NURTURING NATURE’S CREATION:
We offer a complete range of plant and design concepts harmonious with our area and ecology. With well-known and respected horticulturists in Singapore and Malaysia, we offer outdoor and indoor plants.
Our research focuses mainly on our collections of plants, both living and preserved, and scientific literature. Full use is made of the extensive human knowledge base and expertise in taxonomy and horticulture in the institute as a whole. Research, documentation and conservation are all based on the collections in the Gardens, curated and conserved through our horticulture.
We nurture a plant from time to time. It grows from a seedling or cutting to the time when it is planted at our client’s site. Our staff ensures safe delivery of plants. We adhere to a rigorous maintenance schedule at our client’s locations on a regular basis. As a part of our maintenance program, plants are cleaned, watered, trimmed, fed and replaced, if necessary.
