Sylvamix produces successful crops

Melcourt’s technical director Catherine Dawson said: “Sylvamix has been a stalwart growing medium all these years. It’s telling to note that while there hasn’t until very recently been a huge demand for peat-free plants from either garden centres or landscapers, Sylvamix users have nevertheless been able to produce cost-effective crops. Crops that have competed both in price and quality against peat-based equivalents.

“We’re very grateful to our many long-term customers. They have repeatedly demonstrated that peat-free plant production, from cuttings through to large containerised trees, is not only possible but commercially competitive against peat-based production.”
