In our nurseries the cultivation is carried out both on balled plants in open field and on pot plants. Pots offer forest trees earlier cultivated in open field and later placed in pots, allowing to plant them out in any period of the year and optimizing delivery time.
Vivai MGF is present both on the Italian and the international market. It exported numbers of plants to France, where now they adorn and decorate the public gardens of beautiful Tolone. Recently, thanks to the initiative of a customer and a chinese company, Vivai MGF proposed itself on the oriental market, thanks to studies and researches that made possible the survival of the plants to the times and condition of shipping to China; more than 30 days without daylight, inside a container.

The history of Vivai MGF begins in the 30s, thanks to Giovan Battista Mungai, grand-grand father of Giacomo and Francesco Mungai, current managers and owners of the nursery. Giovan Battista, called “l'Americano” (the American), bought the land when he got back from Argentina, where he had worked for seven years. That land is still cultivated to create Vivai MGF products.
Although during the first years the land was sowed with cereals, thanks to one of his two sons Arturo, those fields soon were converted to cultivation and production of plants, becoming one of the nursery company of Pistoia that made this territory famous. This territory and this market is where Vivai MGF still operates, on the legacy of Giovan Battista Mungai. Giuliano, the other son of Giovan Battista, created another family company in the clothing business, successfully run today by his son Alessandro.
The nursery activity was carried on till some years ago under the lead of the old-timer Arturo. Four years ago, those two activities passed to Giacomo and Francesco Mungai, Alessandro's sons, who, with passion, dedication and desire of innovation, everyday are looking for new challenges and new goals, in line with the family tradition.
