Being growers ourselves we are very fussy about the compost that we use and therefore recommend. Each year we check the quality of the growing mediums we sell and will substitute them if we feel their quality has diminished.
There is a large demand for peat free products due to the environmental impact of removing peat from peat bogs and the carbon we release in doing so. Over the last decade or so there have been lots of trials and alternatives being created, but unfortunately there isn’t enough peat free alternative growing mediums available to replace the quantity of peat based products sold every year. Hopefully by all changing our habits and by using the right type of soil for the right purpose we can help to reduce the need for peat in our gardening.
Due to the demand on the horticultural industry this year and last we have not been able to secure a consistent supply of a range of peat free compost. We are constantly working on this to provide you with all of the options available. Please bare with us as we work hard to find the correct growing mediums for you and your needs.
