Thermagro Frost Protection Fleece

November 2nd, 2016

After our first overnight frost of the Autumn it’s time to look at protecting your tender plants from whatever the weather may bring through the coming months. Thermagro frost protection fleece insulates against the cold and also protects against wind and pests. Light and moisture will still pass through the fleece creating an excellent micro-climate to ensure your plants have a great start to Spring 2017.

We offer protection fleece in several widths, lengths and grades to suit all applications. Check out the crop protection section for latest availability and prices.

Retail Fungicide Update For 2015

January 6th, 2016

The 2016 growing season will see a major change in the retail fungicides that are available to the amateur edible garden grower.

Gardeners that relied on tried and tested products manufactured by Bayer, Vitax and others are going to have to re-think how they protect their edible produce from fungal disease attack.

Three of the best selling fungicides on the retail market, manufactured by Bayer, have now either been removed from the market or  have been reformulated and branded.

Bayer’s Fruit & Vegetable disease control was removed from sale at the end of November 2014. This product was effective against potato and tomato blight alongside peach curl and  apple, plum, pear and cherry canker.  According to a Bayer Representative, they are working on a replacement for this product but it is unlikely to appear this season. If this situation changes, we will let you know.

Bayer’s Systhane Fungus Fighter  and Bayer’s Fungus Fighter Disease Control RTU have been re-formulated. The active ingredients in these products have been changed.

They have been re-launced under the brand names Bayer Fungus Fighter Plus and Fungus Fighter Concentrate. The big change is that these new products can only be used on house plants and ornamental plants only.

Vitax’s famous Bordeaux Mix has been temporarily withdrawn from sale pending the products licence being renewed. According to Vitax, there has been further administrative delay in the reissuing of the licence but this is still hoped to be resolved within the next six months.

Parcel Delivery Briefing

July 29th, 2013

From 15th July Royal Mail and Parcelforce have re-issued their dangerous goods policy.

Royal Mail state that “to comply with national and international regulations governing the carriage of mail and ensure that mail in transport does not present a danger to the general public, we resrtict or prohibit certain items from our network.”

These guidelines mean that we are no longer able to send weedkillers, pest control chemicals and sprays through the Royal Mail and Parcelforce network. Royal Mail previously offered a cost effective small parcel service for sizing of under 2kg in weight which many of the above products easily conformed to, unfortunately due to the restrictions we can no longer offer this service and all orders containing these products will be sent as our standard 25kg parcel sizing (seeds, fertilisers, feeds and sundries are not effected).

As we have used Royal Mail and Parceforce as our main distribution partner of parcels over the last 18 months we now have to look to other carriers for an efficient and reliable service. From July 29th all our parcels will now be despatched to customers using Yodel delivery services.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you require any further clarification please email or telephone our office.
