The Pernettya is a 2-year cultivation that involves a lot of work. M. Mathot start cutting around September. Every year, they grow about 3 million Pernettya cuttings in their greenhouses. Here, the cuttings are cared for so they take root. Around March, these rooted cuttings are potted in the desired pot sizes. A year later, the Pernettyas are picked up, cleaned, sorted and driven out to the container field by forklift. Here, they are set up with space in between so as to get enough light on all sides.
