Reducing our Plastic Footprint!

Here at Newgate we are trialing a new cardboard pot  and reusable tray brought to us by local manufacturers Pennine products.

This autumn we are growing all our autumn/winter hanging basket plants in the cardboard pots, with the aim that customers can plant the pot directly into the compost in a hanging basket/container, and they will begin to degrade almost immediately, encouraging strong root development and healthy growth with the benefit of no plastic to dispose of!

The reusable trays will be available to take home and return to the nursery to be reused so no waste.

Plants grown in the new pots will be available from September.
