It’s a pair! Not one but two of our peat-free composts have been shortlisted for this year’s RHS Chelsea Sustainable Garden Product of the Year.

Our Wool Compost for Potting and Wool Compost Double Strength, both recently reformulated with added comfrey, have joined eight other environmentally-friendly products on the shortlist for the annual awards that champion sustainability in the horticultural industry. They will be judged at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022, sponsored by The Newt in Somerset, which returns to its usual May dates for the first time since 2019.

The judges include Dragons’ Den investor Deborah Meaden and sustainability expert Chris Harrop OBE who commented on this year’s innovations:
“It’s been really encouraging to see such a broad range of products making the shortlist that are affordable and accessible for most people’s pockets. We’re also pleased to have independent makers as well as household brands in the selection, which indicates how much demand there is from consumers to have more sustainable gardening products out on the market.” All of the finalists will be on display to visitors at RHS Chelsea Flower Show with the winner announced on Monday 23 May 2022.

Our products shortlisted are:


Wool Compost for Potting
This climate friendly, nutrient rich peat-free compost uniquely blends sheep’s wool and dynamic accumulator crops, bracken and comfrey, which capture carbon and at the same time, yield significant levels of natural nutrients, trace elements and minerals to nourish growing plants.


Wool Compost Double Strength
This fertiliser strength wool compost, has the power to enable gardeners to reuse existing compost rather than throw it away, making it a sustainable option to their growing. Made from 100% natural, fully traceable, UK sourced and renewable ingredients, this nutrient rich compost offers a credible answer to the pressing needs of peat-free and climate change gardening.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show Sustainable Garden Product of the Year was launched in 2021 to recognise the best new sustainable garden products at the show. In line with the ever increasing importance to ensure products offer sustainable solutions, an expert judging panel assess the shortlisted products placing prominence on environmental sustainability as well as taking into account their innovation, visual appeal, functionality and quality. Read about the other finalists here...
