Plants in peat free compost

As a conservation charity caring for our environment is high on our agenda. Peat bog depletion is a real threat so peat free composts help us protect these remarkable landscapes. Herbaceous perennials, shrubs and edibles from our plant centre support this aim and are sold in recycled pots.
