A few examples include wire mesh, steamsheets and capilary matting. The last of these, the Klavermat capilary matting, is made from new material so that the structure of the mat is uniform with the optimum capilary action.
Specialist support materials are made in house. A wide variety of bamboo and moss sticks are imported and all sizes are available from stock. Windbreaks and shade mesh are available in different types and sizes. String is of excellent quality.
