Following a great Glee, Durston Garden Products Ltd continues to focus on arming garden retailers with the quality products they need to transition to a peat-free future.
Durstons put their peat-free range front and centre again at this year’s Glee exhibition, where their products continued to garner interest from visitors and sparked positive conversations with buyers seeking to refine their growing media offer, as the countdown to the peat deadline is now on.
As part of their commitment to a peat-free future, Durstons have invested significantly in developing an efficient and comprehensive peat-free collection that truly performs. Their unique GRO BOOST additive delivers consistently outstanding results without the need for peat and gives growers a compost they can rely on. Retailers have welcomed the launch of this range, which has served to create new opportunities around the category, whilst building much-needed consumer confidence in peat-free products.
On show at Glee this year were recent additions, such as the extra-large Peat Free Grow in the Bag, which was brand new for the 2023 season and is ideal for growing a wide range of fruit, vegetables and salad crops.
Also on stand was the top-performing Multi-Purpose Compost Peat-Free, which is produced entirely from renewable sources and features Durstons’ GRO BOOST technology; and Organic Multi-Purpose Compost Peat Free, which boasts a blend of the highest-quality organic, peat-free growing media, combined with a wetting agent. Both composts provide excellent nutrient content and creates ideal growing conditions for plants.
Durstons also showcased their competitive Manor Farm Peat-Free Multi-Purpose Compost, which enables stockists to offer a peat-free compost at a great-value price point, making sustainable growing more accessible.
Valuable facetime with customers
It wasn’t just quality products on show. Glee provided an unrivalled opportunity for customers to spend time talking to the Durstons team, including both Chris and Dan Durston – fifth and sixth generations of the Durstons family – who were on stand to talk retailers through how the company has grown over the years, as well as exciting plans for the future. Glee is the perfect forum for feedback about Durstons’ products and services and the team was out in force, with Nick Madgin, Ron Perry, Nick Bellett, Mark Rogers and Phillip Manns, along with Stephen Manns and Emma Grainger-Barbour available over the three days to take visitors through the range and discuss the fantastic opportunities afford by buying from an established UK supplier.
