Nini exports an average of 110 million stems a year of varying lengths depending upon market demand. For over 10 years, roses have been packed at source in packhouses on both farms.
Nini Ltd was the first purpose built rose farm in Kenya. Its roses are all grown under greenhouse and on hydroponics. Lamorna Ltd, has some hydroponics and some soil grown roses.
Both farms have a closed fertigation system with their hydroponically grown roses, this means the water is recycled and put back into the system, enabling them to reuse their water.
