Culberry Nursery

Sustainability

Our herb pots (vipots) are made from rice husk and can be broken and added to the compost heap after use.

Veg packs and plastic pots (undamaged) can be returned to us for reuse.

Vegetables are mainly packaged in paper bags and our delivery boxes are returnable.

All our carrier bags are compostable.

We plant wild flowers around the nursery to encourage benefical insects and to provide necter for our bees.

We contol plant pests by non chenical sprays, using barriers and traps
