MORE RECOGNITION FOR SYLVAGROW

Melcourt SylvaGrow has been Highly Commended in the Technical Excellence category of the New Product Awards at the Four Oaks Trade Show 2014.

The Show is a gathering of almost all off the UK's leading horticultural businesses so recognition of this kind is most welcome. Another new product of ours - EcoBark Topper - which helps professional nurserymen prevent the growth of liverwort in pots, was Highly Commended in the Best New Professional Product category.

Of course, the recognition that counts is that from gardeners and stockists so this is an excellent opportunity to thank the growing number of both who are finding that SylvaGrow is a great way forward.

 

RECOGNITION FROM OUR GOLD MEDAL WINNING FRIENDS


It was very good to see acknowledgement of the part our growing medium played in winning Gold for Hardy Cottage Plants at RHS Chelsea.

We wish them and all the users of our peat-free growing medium continued success in the future.
