Don’t worry – you can ‘stop’ your plants from growing any taller by simply pinching out the tip of your plant’s stem, when your plants have reached your desired height. Once you’ve ‘stopped’ your plants from growing any…

Why Peat Free Compost? There are many wild, beautiful, and fascinating areas of our planet that are diminishing due to human destruction. These precious natural areas require our protection urgently, before it’s too late and they are destroyed or lost altogether. There are relatively small areas of rainforests, peat bogs and peatlands remaining on our planet, yet these areas are continuing to be destroyed by humans. The brutality that humans have inflicted on this planet must stop. We must…

I want to improve, I want to make changes to live more sustainably and to live ethically. I want to learn more and give more to our planet. I want to do more to improve things and make things…
