RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival is rumoured to be the largest flower show in the world and we are proud to be exhibiting there 4-9 July. We are also supporting two gorgeous gardens with our peat-free compost.
Mark Lane has designed the ‘RHS and BBC Morning Live Budget Friendly Garden’ which is packed full of creative, cost-effective tips and ideas to help keep the nation growing for their health and wellbeing this summer. Mark is the resident gardener on the BBC TV One show and demonstrates inventive ways to use household goods and equipment in the garden, including the use of cheap and readily-available drought-tolerant plants, as well as recycled materials such as scaffold boards, plant pots and pallets.
The fully accessible garden aims to inspire gardeners of all abilities. Full of fruit, vegetables and edible flowers, including some that can be grown from food waste, it shows that you don't need a large space to feed the family with home grown produce. Our compost has been used to give a peat-free flourish to the garden.
Tayshan Hayden-Smith and Danny Clarke have created the 'Grow2Know: The Grenfell Garden of Peace - Allotment Garden', an edible garden showcasing just what can be achieved in an 6X3 metre raised bed. Tayshan and Danny are committed to 'Closing the Green Gap' by increasing access to green space by the most nature-deprived communities in London.
See, Grow2Know.org.uk. We're inspired by them...and proud to be top dressing the raised bed of the Grow2Know allotment garden with Dalefoot Wool Compost for Vegetables and Salads.
If you are visiting the show our team are on our Dalefoot Composts stand (HC501) and are ready to answer all your peat-free gardening questions.
