Growing Excellence

The Bulrush name is widely recognised as representing quality, innovation and excellence in the growing media sector. We are proud of our company’s heritage and our aim is to continue the development and improvement of all areas of our business in manufacturing, marketing and customer service.

Bulrush is totally committed to supplying both the retail and commercial sectors and on-going investment in new products is enabling us to meet the challenges of a demanding market place. We are committed to finding economically viable alternatives to peat which are available in sufficient volumes and are capable of performing at the levels that you would expect from our products.

Forest Gold Plus

Our research and development team, under the leadership of Neil Bragg, are working hard on the challenge and have a number of on-going projects, the most high profile of which has been the development of Forest Gold Plus, which is now an important ingredient in many of our products.

Forest Gold Plus is a sustainable, timber derived product that improves growing performance to deliver healthier plants and is the industry's leading peat alternative.

State of the art production and packing facilities 

Bulrush has continued to invest to introduce state of the art, low cost automated, efficient production and packing lines. Our modern production and packing procedures ensure Bulrush products are produced in a fresh, clean, pristine condition. All products are hooded to protect against inclement weather during storage and transportation.

Not only are we the only substrate manufacturer in the UK to use a unique batch mixing system, we were also the first manufacturer of substrates in the world to be awarded the ISO 9000 quality management standard (BS EN ISO 9001:2008).

Substantial stocks of retail products are held to meet seasonal demands and these can usually be dispatched on the same day as the order is received.

A number of standard grower products are held in stock to meet the spring demand and again these can be dispatched at short notice. Special products are made to order and are dispatched to meet the requirements of the grower customers.

Fast, efficient and reliable distribution

We are committed to ensuring that orders are delivered in a fast, efficient and reliable manner. Our transport and logistics is headed by Geraint Lloyd Evans and through our network of local haulage companies we can offer a variety of delivery methods to suit customer requirement.
