A 'Zoom' presentation by Catherine Dawson, Technical Director, Melcourt Industries Ltd.
"Where has the UK growing media industry got to with peat reduction?" Information about industry-wide, Defra-supported Responsible Sourcing of Growing Media Scheme, which is soon-to-launch. Melcourt will be used as an example to illustrate how peat-free growing is perfectly feasible across a wide range of growing applications together with information about how the uniformity and consistency - that is so essential - is achieved.
Catherine Dawson, who is Technical Director of Melcourt and a former chair of the Growing Media Association, has worked with peat-free horticultural growing media / composts for more than three decades. In that time, she has developed with colleagues various award-winning peat-free growing media that are now sold throughout the UK to a wide range of professional growers and gardeners alike.
Catherine will start at 20:00, but you'll be able to log in at 19:30.
