Nursery and Turf Products

BNQ standards on ornamental horticulture (BNQ 0605-) are excellent guides for growers and service providers in landscaping and the ornamental industry concerned with offering their customers guarantees of quality and reliability.

These standards contribute to ensuring that the production, use and maintenance of plants and landscaping work with inert materials are carried out with environmental preservation in mind and consideration of currently existing techniques.
