Nursery goes peat free
This year we have reached a milestone. The management committee made the decision to switch over to peat free potting compost. As many will know we have been making out own potting compost since the beginning, but we have always used a small quantity of peat in our mixture. After encouragement from several members and some of our own research we have been able to change over to peat free. We still make our own compost but it is from our own compost heaps with the addition of a small quantity of bought in peat free compost additive. We will see how this works and change the recipe if we need to. We don't think it will make much different to our prices, however they will be reviewed in the new year and changes made if necessary.
