Germination testing

Every batch of compost we make we do a germination test on here is a picture of a recent batch of vegrow organic coir compost certified by the Soil association and the vegan trust.

Fertile Fibre welcome a group from U3A

Fertile Fibre welcomed a group from U3A Gardeners and composters for a tour of the factory and discussion on Organic compost and Coir.
We explained the history of Fertile Fibre from Robert Hirst over 25 years ago to today. We discussed modern markets and the difficulty of getting any PR and supplying large retailers, we also followed the paper trail that is needed to conform to the Soil Association Standard and our application to join Demeter. Nobody left empty handed.
Who's next?
