The new line of eco-friendly garden basics is composed of consumables that are all sustainable, biodegradable and/or recycled. All items and packaging are responsibly designed, produced and both eco-friendly and completely plastic-free. The articles in the line have a wrapper or hanging card made of responsible paper and are printed with water-based ink.
For all traditional gardening supplies, we have included a new, sustainable alternative in our eco-friendly basics line. The growing pots and growing trays are made of biodegradable and 100% recycled paper pulp. The tying thread for flowers and herbs is cleverly designed with a paper sheath, on a paper spool and includes a handy clipper for cutting the thread. The binding wire for plants is made of stainless galvanised steel, as are the reusable plant rings and the handy plant clips.
Our eco-friendly garden basics are
✔️ Wrapped in recycled paper or a hang tag
✔️ Packaging printed with water-based ink
Biodegradable seedling pots
These biodegradable seedpots are ideal for growing vegetables, herbs and flowers. When the seedlings are big enough, they can be transplanted to the garden. The 3 sizes of the pots are made of recycled paper pulp and are therefore fully biodegradable. They dissolve completely in a short time and the roots, which are therefore undamaged, can easily expand further in the soil. The pots are stacked per 18 or 24 and packed with a paper wrapper.
Handy growing trays
The grow trays are made of the same material as the paper grow pots and offer space for planting more or different seeds and seedlings. The trays fit exactly ni the matching greenhouses. The greenhouses are made of plastic, but are 100% recycled.
Peat-free growing medium
Traditionally, potting soil consists largely of dried peat, with added nutrients such as dried manure or fertilizer. However, our soluble tablets are made from natural coconut fibres with starting fertiliser and are therefore completely peat-free! Peatlands absorb twice as much CO2 as the world's forests. But by destroying this peat landscape for use as potting soil, the CO2 emission suddenly increases considerably. Using coconut tablets is therefore a much more sustainable choice. With the tablets you also immediately have the right amount for the growing pots and the structure of the fibres holds the water well. The seedpots with tablets are an ideal basis for seedlings and very suitable for making children enthusiastic about nature and gardening from an early age.
The seedling trays of 100% recycled material (in sizes S and L) are the ideal mini-greenhouse for seedlings. The various sizes of the growing trays fit well in the matching containers. This makes it easier to start your vegetable garden indoors and to transfer your cuttings or seedlings to the larger (vegetable) garden in just a few steps. The mini greenhouses are equipped with adjustable ventilation holes and fit perfectly on the windowsill because of their size.
The eco-friendly basics at your shop!
The basic gardening range easily fills 4 metres of shelves and is extra attractive due to its purely plastic-free packaging. For example, almost all products come with a paper wrapper or hangtag, which are printed with water-based ink.
The four-metre shelf plan is available with header cards, mood photos and explanations. This way you can easily put the eco-friendly garden basics in the spotlight.
