Northern expertise from Finland

Kekkilä Professional is the leading supplier of growing solutions to the forest nursery business in the Nordics. In Finland, more than 90 % of young plants in forest nurseries are grown in Kekkilä substrates because our substrates provide the best germination, growth and quality of transplants!

Substrates developed for the needs of boreal nurseries:

  • Picea abies (spruce)
  • Pinus sylvestris (scotch pine)
  • Betula pendula (birch)

Growing conifers

For growing conifers such as spruce and pine we recommend products in the FPM 420 product range. The main raw-material of the growing media is Sphagnum peat screened into medium-fine grade. The FPM 420 range includes options with and without starter fertiliser as well as with added humic acid.

Winning properties

  • Homogeneous structure for seamless tray filling
  • Airy structure until the end of the growing period
  • Lower pH level for most common spruce and pine varieties
