The RocketGro range really seem to me to be truly reliable composts, feeds and mulches to meet the principles of the modern age.  Each product in the range are 100% Vegan friendly, animal and child safe, 100% peat free and natural and Soil Association Organic Certified for Organic Growers. The products are made from natural plant waste material from the biogas industry, a renewable source.  They are manufactured in Somerset from composted grass, maize, and rye. What more could we ask for?

Why Peat Free?

The peat bogs are a vitally important habitat for wildlife. But perhaps most importantly the peat bogs are absorbing vast amounts of the carbon that we produce, and as I am sure you have are aware, this is important to the survival of our planet. Therefore I strongly advise all gardeners to use these carefully crafted, peat free and organic garden products.  Some gardeners have been reluctant to experiment with them, fearing poor results, but experience has led to new, garden friendly and reliable products.
