"Old gardening recipes to help you garden in balance with nature"
Our composts are all made on our small hill farm in the Lake District. The ideas for our composts come from old gardening books - from where many good ideas have been forgotten.
Made from renewable and natural ingredients. Bracken is harvested on rotation improving the biodiversity of flora and fauna where it grows. Harvesting also improves the habitat for ground nesting birds and butterflies and in particular the High Brown Fritillary. Grazing for animals is also improved. Sheep's wool sheared each year from our flock and our neighbours - provides an alternative source of income to local hill farmers.
We feel that we have we made a range of environmental products that offer our customers strongly sustainable choices and real alternatives to peat.
