"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.
