A new generation of sustainable potting soil

News
Published on

The climate and environmental protection are becoming increasingly important. We, too, are constantly trying to find ways to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment. An example of this is the development of a new generation of sustainable potting soil.

Most potting soils consist of 80-90% dried peat. Peat has an important property that ensures that potting soil can absorb sufficient water. And yet there are less attractive sides to the use of peat. Large quantities of carbon are stored in the soil from which peat is extracted that are released in the form of CO2. This is not exactly sustainable for our planet!

We have therefore developed a new generation of sustainable potting soil in which no peat has been processed. By adding broken hydro granules, this substrate still has sufficient water-absorbing capacity. Moreover, the new substrate contains enough plant nutrition for an entire year. As a result, we have found the perfect balance between sustainability and the quality of potting soil.

We are already using the new generation sustainable potting soil in our nursery for growing our own production. We will soon have it available for you too in bags of 40 litres and 1,000 litres.
