Finlay's flower farms are situated in Mount Kenya, Naivasha and alongside Finlays’ tea estates in the Western Highlands of Kenya.
Experimentation with different growing conditions, greenhouse design and hydroponics has led to consistent quality and high production levels and enables Finlays to take full advantage of the unique climatic conditions of each area. In Kericho, for example, average annual rainfall exceeds 2000mm, providing a valuable water resource for the production of cut flowers.

Applying modern growing techniques afforded by the use of hydroponics, Finalys are able to ensure the most efficient application of water to each plant. Any excess water is then collected and recycled, after UV treatment, in order to maximise conservation in the interests of sustainability and to avoid the loss of valuable nutrients.
