Petite Ingredient was established in 2011 then expanded to a large commercial greenhouse in the Yarra Valley in 2013. The move from field-grown to greenhouse-grown flowers enabled year-round supply of seasonal ranges. The greenhouse acreage is the ideal nurturing and controlled environment ensuring perfect flowers year round without the vulnerability and reliance of Victoria’s tempestuous and unpredictable seasons!
Through the coldest months the flowers continue to bask in temperatures up to 30 degrees.
In summer the greenhouse cover filters the intense and scorching sun light. A controlled and targeted underground drip watering system reduces weed competition and maintains precise watering levels.
