Wyevale confirms Bord na Mona own brand

Wyevale Garden Centres new range of own brand compost is now on sale.

Wyevale Garden Centres has partnered with Bord na Móna UK to supply a range of 19 varieties of growing media and soil improvers which went on sale in January 2016 with prices starting from £4.99.

Hort Week revealed the plan in October 2015. Scotts is replacing Sinclair supplying labelled compost.

The range comprises peat and peat-free formulas including multipurpose and specialist blends, developed to offer customers a choice of products.

Wyevale chief executive Kevin Bradshaw said: "Growing media is an incredibly important product category to us and we feel that our customers will be reassured by the introduction of our own brand range, building on our reputation for quality and expertise. We are committed to offering quality beyond our horticultural products and are confident that this range will deliver exceptional results to our customers.


Bord na Mona consumer UK head Charles Farmer said: "The range covers all the peat-based and peat-free bases including multipurpose and specialist blends such as ericaceous, rose, tree and shrub and tub and basket.  It has been developed by Bord na Móna UK using the massive research and development resources of the premier global supplier in this category.  The result encapsulates the company’s single-minded commitment to best in class and ensures 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."


Chris Bridgeman, centre manager, Percy Throwers said: "We have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction we have received from our customers. They are eager to try our own brand range, with the Wyevale Garden Centres John Innes seed compost already proving popular."
