Cultivating plants is an art, and like art an ornamental plant is the result of hours of work, experiments, failures and hopefully successes as well. It's a constant search to turn a simple plant into something different and special. It is tenacity, passion, sacrifice and above all a love for plants that drives us on.

Thanks to the cultural influence of our area, the varied climate (from -15 ° C in winter to + 40 ° in the summer) and a particularly fertile soil, through the decades Pistoia has become the city of plants. Located in the heart of wonderful Tuscany, it has been providing green artwork to gardens throughout Europe for over a century.

Our family has been producing ornamental plants since 1959. The passion for plants has now been passed down to the third generation, and has created a vibrant and resource-rich company that over the years has expanded to adapt to the new market needs . With 20 h of plants in container and 30 h of cultivated plants in the field we can offer you a professional, well organised approach whilst retaining the family values of honesty and fairness that have guided our company since the begining.

In short, a story that has seen us develop from the early days 60 years ago to the present time where we are delighted and proud to meet the needs of our many loyal customers from more than 25 different nations.

The key strengths of our company:

  • The quality of our products: Through the dedication of our team and our many years of experience we always aim to be proactive in the market. We understand the quality demands of your end customer and strive to meet this at all times. Link this with the use of the very latest machinery solutions and we can guarantee you a wide assortment of high quality plants all year long.
  • Our customer relationships: We know the importance of a reliable cost effective supply partner in a highly competitive market. Our company has grown to meet all current market needs, but we have retained the ability to follow every stage of production and marketing. We understand the value of developing strong commercial relationships and will always work to provide a careful and accurate service at every stage of the sales process.
  • Working with us will be easy and enjoyable. We can arrange your trip to Pistoia and we will accompany you during your visit to the nursery. We can then advise on the most suitable plants for your needs and be able to help you arrange the transport of your plants for the period you require.

We cordially invite you to visit us to fully experience the variety and the beauty of our plants in an atmosphere that is uniquely ‘Carlesi’ – warm, friendly and professional. We are waiting for you in our nursery. Our goal is to keep adding colour to your customers' gardens.
