HORTICULTURAL: Natural and renewable 'peat replacement' great news for growers

Sow & Grow natural growing mats for cress, herbs etc

A NATURAL and renewable ‘peat replacement’ growing mat from Sirane could be great news for producers of cress, mustard, herbs and retailers selling ‘live food plants’.

Sow-And-Grow Resolve mats are a new growing medium which is 100% natural, 100% compostable and 100% renewable – and can be used instead of traditional peat products.

Karl Heggarty, horticultural sales manager, said: “The mats are a plant-based fibre which is 100% natural and compostable. The open structure of the mats encourages root penetration, water retention and growth. We have had some very impressive trials results.

“Unlike many other alternative growing materials on the market, the Sow-And-Grow Resolve mats have low levels of microbial contamination, which avoids the potential introduction of unwanted pathogenic microbes into domestic or commercial situations.”

Sow-And-Grow Resolve mats are available in two grades, 600gsm and 1200gsm, and can be supplied as a roll or cut to size. Additional products grades may also be made available.

Sow-And-Grow Resolve is the latest product to be added to Sirane’s horticultural product range, which includes compostable flower packaging and absorbent solutions.

Sirane offers crepe flower wraps and protective rose-stem wraps, water-retaining flower pouches and compostable wraps/films for fresh flowers and compostable plant pots.

Karl Heggarty added: “Many of our materials and absorbent products are perfect for flower packaging and for protecting fresh flowers during transportation. We’ve used our expertise in material science, shelf-life and absorbency to develop a range of products.

“We can offer a range of pouches for cut flowers, in a range of colours, different absorbencies and different sizes, so whatever your requirement, we are able to help. These can even be used with our compostable wraps as a complete packaging solution.”

Sirane is an innovative packaging design, development, manufacture and solutions company with four divisions: horticultural; food packaging; medical & healthcare, and industrial. The company specialises in areas including absorbency and oven-ready/microwaveable products, compostable packaging, films, boards, absorbent pads, and much more.
