Flier Systems is a dedicated supplier of customer specific machines and systems. They are capable of automating processes such as peat blocking, sowing, sticking cuttings and grading. Development, production and installation are carried out by their own skilled professionals. At Four Oaks 2013 Flier will present their latest Drum Seeder DS11 and their Germination Vision System PM31 on stands D 122a, 122, 123a & 123.

The Drum Seeder DS11 is capable of sowing any type of (unpelleted) seed at high speed, and precision in rockwool (plugs & blocks), trays and soil blocks. The best results are achieved when a specifically designed sowing drum is used for each variety of seed. Because of their unique design, Flier sowing drums are comparatively inexpensive and have a fast and easy change over. In most cases, seed doesn’t have to be coated.

The Germination Vision System PM31 is designed for the grading of young (vegetable) plants in trays, especially young tomato plants. There is also a PM21 (basic model) suitable for bedding plants. The PM31 gives considerable savings in labour costs and improvement in quality. It is possible to eliminate plants that have not germinated (well) with the optional air unit. Nurseries using this system have recovered their investment within one season!

Temperature regulation is important to ensure the sulphur is vapourised at just the right temperature. Sulphur in the greenhouse will prevent damage to crops by Botrytis Powdery Mildew and Black Spot. It will also prevent the spread of other fungal diseases as the fungal spores cannot spread in the sulphurous atmosphere. Other greenhouse pests such as Spider Mite can also be controlled by vapourising sulphur.

COVERAGE - One Sulfume is capable of treating 100m’ of crop. Up to 100 Sulfumes can be needed for each hectare depending on the crop and severity of fungal problems.

CONSUMPTION - The Sulfume can save you money. After an initial surge for less than 1 second, the element operates at 100 watts until the desired temperature is achieved. It then drops to under 50 watts to maintain the temperature. At this level it is the most economic Sulphur vapouriser available. The self regulation uses new technology and does not operate like a traditional thermostat, therefore the consumption changes only slightly with variations in temperature.

For more than 10 years HSK, the Tree Fern Professionals have been a main supplier to the trade of Tree Ferns. We dispatch orders ranging from full wooden sided pallets to direct deliveries of containers.

Our Tree Fern sales package includes large colour labels, a high quality point of sale banner and “Tree Fern Feed” – a specialist fertilizer which gives a Tree Fern the food it needs to produce vigorous growth. It is also a positive additional sale as it helps to explain the specialist care needed to get the best results from Tree Ferns.

We are also the main trade supplier of Wollemi Pine which was thought to be extinct but was discovered in 1994. The tree pictured was one of the first to be planted after its discovery and is one of the few mature trees to which there is public access.

Both Tree Ferns and Wollemi Pine are architectural plants that work well with our selection of driftwood sculptures from New Zealand. The most recent addition to our specialist range is a “Bamboo Control System” which is being used more and more when planting bamboo, to direct, control and enhance its growth so that beautiful areas of bamboo can be created, adding sound and movement to a garden.

The Bamboo Control System is available in an easy-to-move display unit with clear informative instructions on each roll. Now pre-packed with 4, 7, 10 and 20 metre length rolls to reflect demand and mix of sales during the first year.
