Wholesale bio mint: two cultivation methods
Simonato company since 2000 is devoted to producing bio mint for wholesale, and more generally to producing bio aromatic plants.
The company has at disposal about 40000 square meters of equipped greenhouses with a complex ebb and flow watering system to optimise the use of water and avoid any waste and an under-floor and air heating system.
Simonato uses two cultivation methods for the bio mint production:
- Seeding: the pots are filled with bio topsoil and then 40/50 bio mint seeds are added. Once germinated and repotted, the bio mint plants are moved to the “tanks”, areas of the greenhouse with an ebb and flow watering system.
- Cuttings: from the mint “mother” plants are taken several cuttings and replanted in small topsoil cylinders, once they put down roots, they are replanted in the pots.
As for both the farming methods, the distance between the pots is continuously monitored and the pots are increasingly spaced out for the plants to have all the space they need to grow.
The usage of mint in the olden days
The first usages of mint date back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, that used mint as an additive for cleaning, as a fragrance and as a restorative.
In Greek mythology, Mintha was the name of one daughter of the rivers deity; Hades fell deeply in love with her and his wife Persephone, blinded by jealousy, transformed the young Mintha into a mint plant.
Simonato, with all due regard to this plant’s antiquity, is devoted to producing bio mint for wholesale; the large-scale retail, in fact, is one of the main customers the company addresses, guaranteeing:
- Flexibility: the company offers a product with a customisable packaging.
- Efficiency: the incoming orders are fulfilled within an hour.
- Shipments: delivered as quickly as possible in a fast and efficient way.
- Traceability: the bio mint, just like each each other aromatic plant, displays its batch number.
