Bathgate growing media supports RHS Chelsea Flower Show exhibit

by | May 24, 2017 | News | 0 comments

With the world-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show in full swing this week, Bathgate is supporting a prestigious professional grower with his show garden.

Mike Smith, from Tom Smith Plants, a former RHS Chelsea Flower Show award-winner, is using Bathgate?s Champions Blend All Purpose Compost as his main growing media for his display plants at this year?s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Bathgate won the award for Best Retail Product or Service at the Four Oaks show last year for its Champions Blend All Purpose Compost, when judges said that the compost “brought together probiotics, volcanic rock dust and natural seaweed extract in one easy mix for amateur gardeners.”

Mike Smith?s enthusiasm for Bathgate products has extended to him supporting with the development of new Bathgate Horticulture growing media products and in recognition of his valuable contribution, a team from Bathgate joined Mike at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to assist with building his display.

?Bathgate compost is a quality professional growing media and we look forward to using it on all fruit and vegetable show gardens in the future? said Mike Smith of Tom Smith Plants.

Bathgate Horticulture is a range of products from Bathgate Silica Sand, an independently-owned company that has been established for 100 years and is part of the Bathgate Group.

Bathgate takes pride in developing a comprehensive range of horticultural products for professional growers, landscapers, garden retailers and dedicated horticultural enthusiasts.
