Exciting new cucumber range

 

Lefroy Valley NZ represents the cream of the world’s vegetable seed breeding companies and is pleased to announce the inclusion of the BASF (Nunhems) range to the already highly regarded portfolio.

The Lefroy Valley team is very excited to be able to offer the whole range of Cucumbers for indoor production.
