We are the producer of peat moss, substrates, planter pots and Easypot. The HAWITA Group is a globally operating company with more than 400 employees at present, eight production sites and more than 4,500 ha of moor area in Germany and Baltic States.

Thanks to consistent company politics, a great deal of know-how and top employees, we have developed into a premium manufacturer of products for modern horticulture during the course of 100 years of company history.

Our portfolio serves the widest range of areas in the “green sector”; from hobby gardeners through to professional horticulturalists. Just natural peat moss or even special substrates or planter pots. With our name and our mission statement »Your plants in good hands«, we stand for innovative spirit, top products, customer orientation and gapless logistics.

The HAWITA Group provides financial and practical help in land restoration. Drainage ditches are, for example, created to ensure that rain water remains on the land. Vegetation after peat extraction begins with areas of raised and quaking bog. Narrow-leaved cotton grass and peat moss, in particular, are the first plants to take root on restored areas. In addition, rehydrated sites are also ideal places for birds to rest.

Now, many of our products are also available online. Visit our webshop!

Production sites

From our sites in Germany and the Baltic states, we deliver our cultivation substrates and soils to more than 60 countries. Hereby each production site has the same high quality standards.

Our plant in Akniste has been producing our »HAWITA Baltic« substrates since 1996. Clicking on the aerial image gives only a rough idea of how big our own peat deposit here is. But don’t worry, in Latvia, as everywhere else, we don’t leave nature to its own devices after we have extracted the peat but extensively restore all moor land.

The facility in Cesvaine is the newest of the group. In the 7,500 qm² production halls, the company produces the best substrates and soils with state-of-the-art technology for modern professional and amateur gardeners. Nearby is the company’s own moor land where, on an area of 1,500 ha, we harvest milled and block peat for our high quality HAWITA products.

Our Latvian facility in Ozoli produces our »HAWITA Baltic« peat balls. The facility was built in 2007 and is currently the group’s most recent. Peat deposits adjoin the facility to enable customer supply and secure raw materials for our plants in Germany.

The Vechta facility produces mainly the »HAWITA Flor« soils and we can proudly say that it has been doing so already since 1927! Situated directly by the Vechta moor, the Tabeling soil and substrate production facility also has its own peat deposits.

Our »HAWITA Flor« pressed pot soils are produced in Sauensiek, not far from the Elbe Estuary in the south of the Stade district. The Ahrens facility was built in 1920 and, also here, we have our own peat deposit from which we get the best soils for discerning plant lovers and professionals.

Our professional »Fruhstorfer Soils« are produced here, just outside the Hessian district town of Lauterbach. The facility was built in 1920 and is, therefore, able to look back on a long tradition and a great deal of experience. The Archut industrial and soil production facility in Lauterbach also has its own clay extraction facility from which we extract our high quality volcanic clay which, as admixture, enables us to produce exceptional cultivation substrates with high pore volume and improved physical properties.

At our site in Emstek we have been developing and producing the entire plastic product range of the HAWITA Group since the early nineties. Our plastic plant pots and support aids are produced here under the brand name »technoplant« as well as our popular »Palettino« cultivation and transport pallet – the clever reusable gardening solution

We have been producing our ready-to-use fleece pots in Künzelsau under the label »Easypot« as propagation system for ornamental, woody and herbaceous perennial plants since 1995. All Easypot fleece pots are, of course, made out of the high quality special substrates of the HAWITA GROUP.
