Maple Tree’s water source is a reservoir, and wastewater from the greenhouses is collected and filtered through sand at the pump station in order to be recycled.
Magdalena Szczudlik has been Maple Tree’s Nursery Manager for more than a year. A horticulturalist of 15 years’ experience, Magda is proud of the working atmosphere she and her team have created, and of their positive, progressive attitude.
She believes that working in a nursery increases happiness: not only aesthetically, but also because ‘plants produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide to maintain the atmosphere’.
Magda has a sense of pride in all the plants grown at Maple Tree, but aromatic Lavandula (Lavender) has grown to be her favourite, because of the challenge it has posed to grow successfully.
