I’d like to thank you for your time and efforts in helping us with our growing media. We would like to put forward a testimonial for you.
We are a family owned multi award winning garden centre established since 1996. From a young age we decided to produce a percentage of our plant-stock in house due to the fact that we are an Australian Native Specialist and some plants we like to sell aren’t readily available. There’s also the economics of growing some of your own stock to increase profits.
We have used several different potting media companies over the years and although we have had some reasonable results, we’ve also had some poor results. Couple this with the fact that we don’t grow large numbers of any one plant species, we need a growing media that is diverse in it’s application. We’ve struggled to find a suitable “all round” media that is suitable for the majority of our nursery plants.
After talks with John Daly at Eco Environment in regards to our dilemma he suggested we try some “Bioganic Earth”-specialist Growing media. We still had some of our existing media left so we used it alongside the “Bioganic Earth”. We had some great results. We noticed several differences very early. The “Bioganic Earth” held more moisture in the pot than our existing media however still had
good air porosity and drainage. It also re-wet easier if it did dry out. Over time we noticed that there was little to no slumpage/sinkage of the media in the pot and the plants were performing well.
We’ve now purchased thirty cubic metres of Bioganic Earth and we’ve never had such healthy plant growth. The media has proven to be a great “all rounder” mix for us and has vastly improved the quality of our green stock.
