Bayer Garden says its new Super Strength Glyphosate, which has just received approval from the Pesticides Safety Directorate, is a breakthrough in treatment of Japanese Knotweed.
Meanwhile, garden products manufacturer Stewart has introduced an item it describes as the first commercially viable 100 per cent biodegradable plastic flowerpot to the market.
Stewart says the flowerpots cost more to produce than the firm’s traditional products, but will be sold to the trade and to consumers for exactly the same price.
Starting with its entire range of flowerpots and saucers, the Bio Pots are available in terracotta, green and black, and Stewart has produced a Bio Pot merchandiser and free fact sheet to help retailers promote them.
Stewart products are available from Homebase, Wyevale, Wilkinsons and over 600 independent garden centres in the UK and Eire.
Bayer products are available across the garden retail market.
