Bord na Mona UK deal

NATURAL energy provider Bord na Mona has inked a deal with Vital Earth to distribute its GroWise peat-reduced range of composts throughout the UK over the next three years.

The company, which already has a strong presence in the UK market, said that this agreement presents a platform to build the GroWise brand within the independent garden centre market.

Bord na Mona and Vital Earth are planning to shift to wholly peat-free compost in line with the UK Government's targeted date of 2020.

In the meantime, they will aim to encourage growers and retailers to ease their own transition to completely peat-free compost.
