Greenwood Plants is expected to exceed its transition to peat-free end of year target.

Trudy Harrison MP, parliamentary under secretary of state for Defra and Minister for natural environment and land use, visited Greenwood Plants to discuss its transition to peat-free growing.

Greenwood started its transition to peat-free in 2022, and currently grows 99% of its plants across all six of its nurseries using peat-free compost.

Trials are underway in the nurseries’ propagation area to transition the remaining 1% of the young plants into peat-free growing media.

Last week the nursery was named ‘Peat Free Grower of the year’ at the Horticultural Trade Association (HTA) awards 2023, and is expected to announce its 100% transition to peat-free growing in the coming weeks, ahead of its 2023 target.

Following its complete transition to peat-free, Greenwood expressed intention to focus on its supply chain, with several suppliers already committing to fulfilling their orders with plants grown in 100% peat-free media.
