Limiting our impactWe aim to have as minimal impact on the environment as possible. Unfortunately that isn't always easy, but we try very hard. We use recyclable packaging, offer trade clients the option to return the packaging free of charge and we are committed to find a suitable alternative to the plastic we use. The soil used in our pots is 20% peat free and made of coir fibre and tree bark and we are working towards being 100% peat free.
With a little help from mother natureWe realised some time ago that consumers were not being given the option of being able to purchase pesticide and organic pesticide free vegetable plants. So we decided to change this, and now all our vegetable produce is grown free from pesticide of any kind, other than what is supplied naturally by mother nature.
Naturally, there are many health benefits of growing vegetables without pesticides, it is much healthier for you, it tastes much better and lasts longer. It also gives you peace of mind and a much better understanding of what you are eating and what has gone into producing it.
It is not only healthier for you, much better for the environment but also much better for all the pollinators, who are arguably the most important team members, without whom we would not be able to grow plants.
