This year is the first of the target dates for the elimination of peat use from horticulture and demand for Melcourt products which has been increasing year-on-year for the past 5 years or so has never been higher. We’re expecting it to go on that way as the nation’s gardeners turn to peat-free material. With that in mind…..
• we’re investing yet again in increased production capacity with the installation of an additional bagging line. The picture above shows the work in progress.
• we’ve expanded the SylvaGrow range to include a formulation for use in tubs & baskets. SylvaGrow Tub & Basket is available in 50L packs or 15L carry bags. It’s the same successful SylvaGrow formulation but with an added water retaining aid.
• to help gardeners reduce their use of single-use plastic, we’re making some of our products available in maxi-bales
The future of British gardening is peat-free, and here at Melcourt we’re doing our best to lead the way!
