We are fully committed to environmental responsibility and share the concerns of gardeners, the horticultural industry and government towards peat extraction. We strive to be a peat free business and support the continued search for alternative growing media. In 2022 we joined the HTA Sustainability Pledge and the Responsible Sourcing Scheme. At the start of 2019, we started to increase the sales of peat-free growing media with the introduction of Melcourt composts and today the sales reached 75% of our compost sales and we are working hard to make sure this percentage continues to grow and by 2024 when we will only sell Peat Free Products. We do not sell moss peat, sedge peat, moss poles or sphagnum moss. Peat-free compost has a prominent position within our compost sales area and now takes up the majority of the area. All of the plants we sell are grown in peat-free or reduced-peat media; helping reduce our peat throughput.
