We are delighted to report that for the second year in a row, Melcourt has won the Best New Product Award at the Garden Press Event.

Voted by the delegates at this year’s event which was successfully held online, SylvaGrow Farmyard carried the day.

Melcourt’s Managing Director Andy Chalmers said, ‘We are delighted to have won this prestigious award for the second year in a row. The SylvaGrow Farmyard is an excellent product for all gardens, full of natural slow-release nutrients, peat-free and made from a renewable resource.’

SylvaGrow Farmyard is already being despatched to garden centres throughout the UK – see our where-to-buy page for your nearest stockist.



SylvaGrow Farmyard is a consistent and nutrient-rich source of organic matter that can be used all around the garden just like Farmyard Manure.

Continuing challenges sourcing a reliable, herbicide-residue-free farmyard manure encouraged Melcourt to look more widely at materials that could provide all the benefits of FYM without the risks of contamination and inconsistency. SylvaGrow Farmyard is made from anaerobic digestate which is a by-product of green energy production. Containing no manure, it is suitable for use by vegans and our source is approved by the Soil Association.

SylvaGrow Farmyard is easy to spread having an even particle size, has a slow-release nutrient content very similar to that of farmyard manure and can be used with absolute confidence – no hidden threats from herbicide contamination. Endorsed by the RHS SylvaGrow Farmyard offers gardeners a wonderful opportunity to spread safe, rich and consistent organic matter throughout the garden with superb results.
