At Glee in September 2015, Bord na Móna UK launched its Bord na Móna Growise range of peat to peat-free growing media and soil improvers and celebrated the launch with a competition for retailers to win a trip to Ireland. 

Retailers visiting the stand were in with a chance of winning a short break for two in Dublin. 

Saunders said: "I’m very happy about the Bord na Móna Growise Dubline break. I’ve never been before but as I have family over there this will be particularly great. I hope to go in February, potentially as a Valentine’s Day celebration."

Pike said: "The investment that has gone into the new brand is all about ensuring that the garden retail customer is well supported on and off line, in media and at point of sale.  Our mission is to ensure the consumer can buy the very best performing product whatever the task in hand and whatever their preference in terms of peat and peat-free."
