Four new ways to help your garden Pro-Grow

30 september 2014
Manufactured in the UK, the range is suitable for beds to hanging baskets and from lawns to plant pots and is made from 100% recycled bio-degradable organic materials.  The four new lines complement the original Pro-Grow Soil Conditioner and support plant or lawn growth by adding nutrients and creating an improved soil structure and root environment.

The new range includes:

•    Multi-Purpose Compost – A careful blend of ingredients which provide the perfect growing conditions for a wide range of plants at all ages. Includes nutrients for healthy plants and organic matter to help break down heavy clay soils and improve sandy soils.

•    Bark Chips  – An attractive ornamental bark which can be used to enhance the health and appearance of garden borders, beds and pathways, and as a mulch to retain the moisture in the soil whilst keeping the weeds down

•    Woodchip Mulch – The woodchip is pre-composted to give an attractive dark appearance and breaks down over time to gradually release nutrients and improve soil structure.

•    Pro-Grow Lawn Conditioner – Rejuvenates tired looking lawns by improving the soil structure for strong roots and providing natural nutrients for healthy grass. Ideal for application after turfing; for lawn repairs; or as a top dressing.

Bruce Moffat, General Manager at Veolia said: “Our peat free soil conditioner assures sustainability with no need for added fertilizers as Pro-Grow provides a wide variety of nutrients. The extended range means people can select exactly the right product to meet their needs and help ensure the garden is in a healthier condition to support plant growth.”

To mark the launch of the new range for the month of October Pro-Grow is offering a 10% discount code, just type Oct10 at the checkout.
