Pioneer on
Tissue Culture of
Ornamental Plants
Since Miyoshi & Co., Ltd. has been established, we have been producing, distributing and developing flower seeds, plants and bulbs. We have been putting our main focus on vegetative propagation. We introduced tissue culture techniques and started production and sales in 1968. Since then we have been market leaders by succeeding in supplying disease free and high quality plant material.
We made big progress in Gypsophila, Carnation, Gerbera, Limonium (statice), Gladiolus, Lilies and other crops by introducing the techniques of tissue culture. In 1975, we started mass-production of Gypsophila using this technique which allowed the product to be more widely grown.
Presently, our top sellers are Tissue Culture Limonium, Delphinium and F1 Eustoma. We produce over 3 million tissue culture plants a year. These varieties are famous as our own original. We have been putting much effort on selections and hybridization on this genus.
Miyoshi is the first large scale distributor of plug plants in Japan. We started producing plug seedlings from 1986 at jointly established company, T.M. Ball Laboratories Inc. and started plug seedlings mainly for cut flower usage and now produce pot and bedding plants also.
Miyoshi's goal is to be a development company with "one of a type" products in the horticultral business.
