Briercliffe said: “For any garden centre that is keen to promote their environmental credentials this seminar will explain the environmental issues around peat use and how the supply industry is geared up to deliver peat reduction. By holding the event at the same venue and on the same day as the Garden Retail Awards we hope to attract many potential GMI members.”
