More eco-friendly alternatives added to range

Another range of new products unveiled at Glee (Garden, Leisure, Equipment Exhibition), this time from big brand container manufacturers Garland.

Most gardeners will be familiar with Garland, as they’re pretty ubiquitous in garden and DIY centres, but we usually associate them with plastic products.

It’s obvious the firm has responded to consumer worries about plastics and has unveiled three very welcome new ranges.

Bio-Based Growing Pots

These plastic-free, 100% biodegradable pots are available in 5 sizes, including 9cm to 13cm round and a 9cm square. Made from 100% natural plant-based raw materials, they contribute to a healthy and sustainable living environment and are suited to natural organic growing.

They are manufactured using a plant-based polymer that is industrially compostable in accordance with EN 13432 standards.

The Bio-Based Growing Pots have an extremely low carbon footprint, official LCA calculations by Eurochain show that they produce 30% lower CO2 emissions than a similar pot made from recycled polypropylene.

A new range of 12 professional growing pots in sizes from 9cm to 23cm, produced from 100 per cent recycled and recyclable plastic.

Recycled & Recyclable Plastic Pots

These pots are available in 7 sizes, ranging from 9cm to 23cm round and are made from 100% recycled and recyclable post-industrial and post-consumer waste plastic, making use of plastic waste that would otherwise end up in landfill.

The pots are all thermoformed and are strong and sturdy enough to be used for several growing seasons.
