Flowers and plants are either grown wild or produced, i.e. raised by sowing seed or by planting seedlings. The plants that are available in Iceland are either grown here or imported. The Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST) functions as the official national plant protection organization of Iceland and is responsible for maintaining plant health and ensuring seed quality.
Organic seeds and organically grown plants can now be bought from many producers and the demand is steadily increasing.Organic cultivation is based on the fact that medicines and preventive chemicals are not used for the soil, and only organic fertilizer is used. The environmental impact of such production is much more positive than during traditional cultivation. The TÚN certifying agency is a member o IFOAM and certifies organic production here in Iceland.
