Findons chemical cleaning biobedBordon Hill Nurseries Ltd. commitment to "keep it green" is demonstrated by the environmentally friendly methods employed in order to recycle as much water as possible.

All water that is used in the cleaning process for growing equipment is channelled to a BioBed. Here any chemicals are broken down and rendered harmless by carefully maintained bacteria.

All run-off from the nursery is fed through reed beds which minimise nitrate and other nutrient loss into ground water. A million gallon reservoir collects the rainwater from the nursery roofs.
