Since December 2007 we have been fully certified by The Soil Association, after being organic for nearly a decade. We make our own composts and use minimal, natural packaging and labeling, recycling wherever possible. Louvain does NOT use artificial fertilizers, chemical weed killers, fungicides or pest controls. We buy-in Summer and Autumn bedding to supplement our stock. A large range of fully-certified organic vegetables, greenhouse and herb plants are produced from May onwards. We offer a local delivery service
