“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Welcome to Frančeskija garden nursery, your destination with a selection of quality outdoor plants, plantings and seedlings since 1970.
Green gold – Olive Oil “Frančeskija”
In 2011, we started raising permanent fig plantations and olive groves on an area of 5 ha. In one of the largest fig plantations in Istria, we planted the common fig (477 trees), zimica (122 trees) and white (88 trees). As for the oldest fruit seedling, the olive tree, we planted the autochthonous Istrian white variety (285 trees), Leccino (70 trees) and pollinator – Pendolino (39 trees).
The legends about the healing properties of olive oil have proven to be true. This natural product with valuable nutritional properties, extracted from the fruits of autochthonous Istrian olives, is a mandatory part of any serious gastronomy. Olives from our plantation of 394 trees are no exception, the murmur of the sea and the sun glow encourage the production of extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality. We then bottle this divine liquid in glass bottles of 0,25 l, 0,5 l and 0,75 liters.
The increasing consumer demands for food products that are protected by quality assurance and geographical origin, provide us with more and more opportunities for growing olives and figs.

In addition to the quality of the herbs, there is also a big amount of herbs available so it is very easy to design landscaping for smaller and larger areas. The plant material has a continuous quality, year after year the same assortment of plant material is always of the same quality or better.

All the seedlings are extremely healthy and with some care they are making good progress. We received all the information, but more importantly, we were taught what to plant and how to nurture it, and we were also able to arrange everything by email.
