Biocide-free moss killer launches

MossOff Multi-Surface Concentrate is a newly launched biocide-free way of controlling moss and algae on all outdoor surfaces.

The product is biocide-free and can be used in a garden sprayer or watering can fitted with a fine rose. Large 5 litre pack has a recommended retail price of £24.99 and the 2 litre pack is £12.99.

Following a retail trial during 2016 Adam Wigglesworth of Aylett Nurseries said: "Customers increasingly search out product that is genuinely safe to their children and pets, and that's quite a challenge when it comes to keeping moss and algae under control. The great thing about MossOff is that not only is it safe, it's easy to use and effective too. We trialled the product with our customers this Spring and I am not surprised at how often they selected it over the conventional chemical alternatives. Genuine innovation in the 'control products' category is rare and with the tighter regulations we’ve lost regulations many conventional products in recent years. MossOff is a genuine new opportunity to replace some of those lost sales."

The product is made from natural ingredients and has a physical mode of action and has an official derogation from the Chemicals Regulation Directorate.
