Buy peat free compost

We are now stocking a peat free planting compost called Topgrow. These are the benefits of using peat free compost:

  • It holds moisture well & releases nutrients slowly, over a long period of time.
  • Better for the environment: ancient peat blogs are being depleted resulting in a loss of habitat for wildlife & releasing harmful greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.
  • Guilt free gardening, compost containing peat is contributing to climate change.

Our plants aren’t the only thing that’s green

All our company vehicles for office staff are now fully electric. It is really important to us as a business to make sure we are contributing to a greener environment. For many years we have also held ISO accreditation (ISO14001) that helps keep our environmental responsibilities at the forefront of the ongoing management of the business. Lowering our impact on the planet is something we are passionate about. This includes simple things like making sure we sell lots of plants that attract bees and other vital pollinators!

We are delighted to announce that from September 2021 our car chargers will be available for you, our customer, to use so you can recharge your car as you restock your garden with plants. Download the Vend Electric app and connect for 25p per KW. Another reason (if you needed one) to visit us.
