Peat policy and other green issues
All our mail order plants are grown in peat-free compost or plugs. It has taken us a while to find a suitable peat-free alternative which meets the stringent requirements of professional module propagation.
Most of our plants such as brassicas and lettuces don't need any heat. A few of the plants for April and May delivery (e.g. cucumbers, tomatoes, courgettes) need a bit of heat during propagation, especially on cold nights. We have a biomass boiler which burns woodchips made from forestry trimmings and thinnings.
Plants are removed from our re-usable growing trays at the time of dispatch. Our loosefill packing material is 100% biodegradable and can be added to your compost heap along with the cardboard, or put in the appropriate recycling bins.
