Spring has finally arrived and we are now entering our busy season as propagating begins for those lovely home grown summer vegetables.
To keep up with this seasonal demand we have just landed a 40ft container and have now doubled the stock levels on our range of potsand products.
Fertilpots are composed primarily of wood fibers and are sustainably manufactured without the use of glues or binders. They are truly biodegradable and are intended to be planted directly in the ground or a larger container Fertilpots do not require a composting situation to biodegrade. Because water, air and roots will penetrate the walls of the Fertilpot so easily, there is no need for drainage holes. The natural root structure that develops helps to ensure a successful transplant.
DEBug applied to strawberriesThen Protect
Don't forget to protect your new plantings, SlugGone is ideal for containers and there is nothing else more suitable to not only repell slugs and snails, but to act as a self-felting mulch retaining moisture in your container. Then releasing lovely organic nutrients into the soil as it breaks down. DEBug Diatomaceous Earth can be used for just about any common garden insect. As an natural organic product it contains no harmful chemicals and kills by dehydrating the insects. With no with-holding periods, you can use anytime... great for picking off salad leaves or strawberries for a quick bite.
Please take the time to look through our newsletter and we look forward to hearing from you in the future. Happy gardening, Warren & Monique

September is Bee Aware month.
One mouthful in three and nearly ¾ of the diversity of our daily food is directly attributed to Bee pollination. Honey bees all around the world are in decline because of Varroa mite infestations and other threats. Pesticide misuse is killing bees. Habitat degradation takes away flowers which supply nectar and pollen, their essential food. Bees are now dependent on humans to protect them.
Now is a great time to help our bees by using our propagators to seed beautiful flowers rich in Nectar. We recommend Kings Seeds 'Bring on the Bees' which is a selection of 5 bee plant varieties (Anise Hyssop, Bergamot Bee Balm, Borage, Echium Blue Bedder and Phacelia Lacy).
We are currently looking for retailers through-out the country to stock our range of Fertilpots, Peat Pellets, DEBug Diatomaceous Earth, Slug Gone Wool Pellets, Wool BioMats, etc. So if you have a local garden centre looking for some unique new products, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can get in touch.
We are also looking to people who might want to sell our products at their local town market.
