What is Enviroculture?

Enviroculture is a special, sustainable planting system that helps your organisation demonstrate your responsible attitude towards the protection of our planet. The system does not require soil or compost for the plants to grow and is therefore totally peat-free. It is a very clean system, free from soil-borne pest and bacteria, and has a positive effect on the Environment.

Why use the Enviroculture planting system?

The use of the Enviroculture planting system directly contributes towards the protection of our natural peatlands. Peat bogs are unique ecosystems that not only provide a natural habitat to many rare forms of fauna and flora but they also provide areas of significant natural carbon storage.

“Peatlands only cover about 3 percent of the Earth but they accumulate more carbon than a tropical rainforest”

How does Enviroculture work?

The plants grow in expanded clay granules – an inert, sustainable product that is fully recyclable – to provide the necessary root stability instead of traditional soil or compost.  All the nutrients and clean water that the plants need is provided by our trained maintenance technicians on a regular basis. Enviroculture plants have special water roots to allow them to thrive in this unique growing environment and this helps them effectively clean and purify the air in your building as well as help increase humidity levels. 

Why not just use peat-free compost?

Peat has some amazing properties that make it a very popular addition to many different growing mediums, composts, etc.  Its strength is in its capillary action which is very valuable for the even distribution of moisture in the root space of plants. Peat-free growing mediums are available but, in our experience, do not produce such healthy plants.
