Plant Pot Amnesty

Posted by on in News & Views

plantpotsIn our last newsletter we asked our Coventry based Blue Daisy clients to take part in a plant pot amnesty.  Thank you to all who took part – it is very much appreciated!  We now have a new selection of plant pots to use when potting up and growing on new seedlings and cuttings and if we can recycle pots it means that we can also keep the price down even further when we sell the plants on.

Apart from keeping plant prices down for you, there is also a bigger, very real reason why we asked you to do this – it's estimated that there are 500 million plant pots introduced into circulation every year, and as yet, there is still no real way of dealing with them once they've been emptied.
