Pistoia based Vivai Gabellini have reported a fine return from their debut at the IOG Saltex exhibition. Their variety of large trees such as Quercus, Fagus, Carpinus (Oaks, Hornbeam and Beech) in different forms including very large screening espaliers scored well with Estate Managers and Parks Officers seeking high quality material for future projects. In advance of the event, the majority of their plant material exhibited had already been reserved by the Crown Estate Office for use in Windsor Great Park. They will be strongly considering in repeating their presence in the show.
The large terracotta pots from the Italian Terracotta Company attracted much interest resulting in a surprising number of orders despite the harsh economic climate.. Local authorities were also very interested in the large plastic moulded tree and plant containers from Hillary’s Pagani (HP group) for use in public places.
Vivai Gabellini specialize in growing and supplying high quality landscape material in an area of 50 hectares in the heartland of the famous Tuscan growing region. Evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs, conifers and plants suitable for public open spaces are all grown in the nursery. Container grown plants assures the availability of most specimen all year round. For over 20 years the company has been supplying plants and trees to the UK developing a good market knowledge which is beneficial for the clients’ requirements.
