Tildenet Gardenware has added sustainable products to its portfolio including bamboo plastic-free pots and propagation solutions.

National account director Glynn Davis said: “The focus for Tildenet Gardenware continues to be supplying good quality products and service to our customers but we have also taken on board the feedback from our customers about wanting to see the growing environmental concerns and support for sustainable gardening reflected in our our ranges.

“We’ve responded and have added many new sustainable products to complement those we already supply and are also offering a choice of packaging to give retailers the option to answer their customers concerns regarding the need to reduce plastic in garden centres.”

New products to look out for are Haxnicks Bamboo Seed Trays and Pots, Bosmere PVC-free covers and new Tildenet screening and turf ranges.

Managing director Andrew Downey said 2018 “has been a challenging year for the sector.” He added: “Tildenet are strong supporters of the moves within the industry to address the issues surrounding the excessive use of plastics and it has been particularly rewarding to work with a focus on developing products and practices which reflect that – we know from our customers that this will be important for them in the coming seasons.”
