Outstanding Results from Growing Trials

Recent independent growing trials have revealed that Coco & Coir™ Coco Boost produced the best performance results beating the UK’s best-selling peat-based and peat-free composts.

The growing trials were conducted by Stockbridge Technology Centre, the UK’s premier horticulture growing and testing facility. The trials tested the performance of various growing media based on the growth of tomato and petunias following the industry defined P7 methodology.

Coco Boost was benchmarked against the UK’s top selling peat-based and peat-free selling composts.

High Yield for Petunias

In the trials, Coco Boost produced petunias two and a half times the size of the best-selling peat-free compost and yielded three and a half times more flowers. For tomatoes, the plants were 33% larger and grew much stronger root systems.

Plant vigour based on plant size and colour remained excellent throughout the trial for those grown in Coco & Coir™ Coco Boost.

100% Peat-Free

Steve Harper, Southern Trident’s CEO, says: “The results from the Stockbridge trials reflect the feedback consumers have been telling us. Coco & Coir™ Coco Boost is specially formulated to provide gardeners with the best 100% peat-free compost to grow healthy, strong plants.”
