Statement on Peat11th December 2020
We are committed to becoming peat-free but this needs to be done in a realistic and sustainable way. This relies on consumers accepting that the quality of peat free media is of equal quality and reasonably priced. We have offered peat free alternatives for as long as I can remember, but consumer conversion has been weak, until now, it is improving. This is due to the fact manufacturers have improved the quality of peat free growing media and lowered prices which in turn has allowed us to offer very competitive peat free multibuys to our customers, this in itself has not been an easy challenge for suppliers to surmount.
