Growing Success GrowQube

The new GrowQube from Growing Success offers the promise of more juicy, tasty tomatoes with minimal effort. Trials have shown that tomato plants grown in the GrowQube produced over 50% more fruit that the same variety grown in conventional grow bags.

Containing a brand new and unique blend of ingredients GrowQube has been specially formulated to produce an exceptional crop of tomatoes, chillies or peppers. Because of its depth it allows plant roots to develop fully for greater strength and more efficient moisture and nutrient uptake.

The GrowQube is made from the finest grade Scottish peat, SuperFyba made from composted wood, coir and a professional grade balanced cocktail of primary nutrients and essential trace elements.

As an added bonus, 25% of the blend is premium Sinclair Vermiculite. This natural mica material has a very high surface area with 96% pore volume wherein air and water is stored and taken up by the plant roots as and when needed. It also retains heat to insulate against damaging temperature fluctuations and holds onto a reservoir of nutrients whilst slowly releasing its won magnesium, iron and potassium to improve fruit quality and flavour.

Also included is Celcote, a cellulose water-absorbing coating which locks onto compost fibres and promotes moisture absorption without blocking the air spaces. It also reduces the need for irrigation by a quarter.


J. Arthur Bower's Masterblend Compost

We believe this the finest peat-based universal compost ever produced by our company.  J. Arthur Bower's Masterblend is a crumbly, very free-flowing blend of 100% professional grade Scottish peat with 10% John Innes; the mix is rich and dark. Ideal for the gardener looking for the best compost for their special plant purchase.

Enriched with a 6-month controlled release fertiliser, the Masterblend compost is further enhanced by the addition of Celcote, a cellulose water-absorbing coating which locks onto compost fibres where it stores and releases moisture as it is needed - resulting in water savings of up to 25% without plant wilt or stress.


 Deadfast Path & Patio Weedkiller

Deadfast Path & Patio Weedkiller is formulated to control most annual and perennial weeds such as grasses, nettles, willowherb and dandelions on hard surfaces. The weedkiller is absorbed by the leaves of the plant and its systemic action means that it kills the whole plant including the roots. The trigger action spray helps accurately target just the plant and no weedkiller is wasted.


Deadfast Slug Killer



A super-effective slug killer to eradicate slugs and snails.

This product has an extremely fine granule which means that it is more effective in targeting slugs and snails than most of the standard metaldehyde slug pellets - the common cheap blue pellets on sale. Always read the label and use as directed on the pack.

If you have any concerns about your local conditions choose Growing Success Advanced Slug Killer instead. It is made from, ferric phosphate, which is OK for use around for children and pets.


Growing Success Seed Blanket


Growing Success Seed Blanket - applied instead of compost in a 3mm layer on top of a newly sown and watered tray of seeds - creates the ideal growing environment for most seeds. Completely sterile, it is free from weed seeds, pathogens and fungi spores and thus helps to prevent seed loss from damping off; and it is so light and open-structures that seedlings can grow through it with ease.

The blanket absorbs and retains moisture to release slowly as needed, thereby preventing the seeds from drowning in too much water. In addition, the air pockets provided by the open structure insulate and protect the seeds from damaging temperature extremes.

Moreover, the thin, laminated structure of the vermiculite allows light to pass through to the seeds below.


Ideally, Growing Success Seed Blanket should be sprinkled directly on top of seeds where its aeration and water holding properties will be of most benefit. However, those seeds that require darkness to germinate, such as Calendula, Delphinium, Nemesia and Schizanthus, should be covered with a layer of sieved seed compost before finishing with Seed Blanket.

It has an indefinite storage life and once the seeds have germinated the Seed Blanket mineral chips can even be re-used as an additive to improve growing media or as a houseplant mulch to deter sciarid flies from laying their eggs.
