Technical director David Holloway told Horticulture Week:
"We are planning to launch three new mats at Four Oaks Trade Show. They which will work in a similar way to the Butterlymat, but the seedmat will be filled with companion plants supporting growth and protection of vegetable crops."
The firm is embarking on a period testing over the summer, consulting with professional gardeners to find the most effective combination of companion plants.
One product will be geared towards salad/lettuce crops combining with salad onions and fast growing flowers. Another will support an 'oriental mix' of plants and another will be geared towards growing carrots.
The firm is also developing products for the landscaping sector:
"Landscapers have told me they don't want one square metre, but 100-metre rolls. So we are developing a tougher, more robust landscape mix in larger quantities."
