Haxnicks new range of Bamboo Pots and Seed Trays has won Best Garden Care - Accessories Award in the prestigious GLEE Gardening Industry Awards.
The material used for the pots and trays is sustainable bamboo, rice and natural resin. The range is BPA free and compostable. Best of all, using these pots will help you reduce petrochemicals in your greenhouse. It’s estimated that a staggering 500 million plastic plant pots are sold every year. The majority end up in landfill or in an incinerator. Very few are recycled as there are few facilities to do so. Unfortunately, a large amount of fossil fuel is needed to produce plastic pots. Once produced they take around 500 years to decompose. Haxnicks Bamboo Pots once broken up in active compost will decompose in 6 to 12 months. Quite a difference!
GLEE is a trade exhibition for the gardening industry. 500 leading UK and international wholesale garden suppliers exhibit there. GLEE is where every gardening retailer; big, small, online or on the high-street can source the very best products for you. Its like a gardening Aladdin's cave!
Damian Cardozo of Haxnicks says. "The Products that win at GLEE are those that really move the industry forward and offer the gardener what they need. The appetite is there for sustainable pots so it is the right time for this product. We are very excited about playing our part in making our gardening more environmentally friendly"
The Pots and Seed Trays are now available online and in all good Garden Centres and are the perfect choice for the environmentally aware gardener.
In December 2019 new sizes have been added to the range. these are the 3 inch, 4inch and 8 inch pots in both Sage Green and Terracotta colour. This will replace even more plastic in the greenhouse.
