Bulrush Horticulture is well-placed for a busy season next year

Company: Bulrush Horticulture

As demand for peat-free products continues to skyrocket, leading substrate producer Bulrush Horticulture has been investing back into the business and increasing capacity to help cater to the uptake in orders and continue to provide customers with a reliable supply of high-quality peat-free growing media solutions.

As one of the largest producers of peat-free substrates to the UK professional market, Bulrush Horticulture Ltd is not one to rest on its laurels. The company has been preparing for another busy season next year, putting plans in place to meet the continued rise in demand for peat-free.

Significant investment and an expansion in operations will see Bulrush increase capacity by this autumn, ensuring the business will be well-placed for 2025, providing professional growers with a reliable supply of its market-leading mixes.

Bulrush Sales Director, Alex Julien explains: “It has been an extremely busy year for us so far and we have been doing a lot behind the scenes to increase our output and capacity to ensure we are in an even better position for next season. Following the acquisition and upgrade of a new coir processing plant in recent years, we have continued to put money back into the business and have some big things in the pipeline, which will come to fruition in time for next year. We are on the precipice of something very exciting, which we know will offer a huge benefit to our customers.”

Over the years, Bulrush has consistently invested in state-of-the-art equipment at its facilities to maximise efficiency across production and packing lines, and this latest round of changes and developments form part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy and commitment to growers.

With more than four decades of experience under its belt, Bulrush has earned its stellar reputation in the industry, where its range of standard and custom substrates regularly outperform competitor products. It is the only substrate manufacturer in the UK to use a unique batch mixing system and was the first in the world to be awarded the ISO 9001 quality management standard (BS EN ISO 9001:2015), reflecting the extremely high standards of quality assurance Bulrush products adhere to.

Alex Julien concludes: “We have seen demand for peat-free products increase exponentially over the past few years, which is great news. We have invested to ensure our business can match this growth and provide customers with a consistent supply of innovative products. We are investing across the board – in technology, people, and facilities – all of which will help increase our output significantly. All this work is supported by our ongoing commitment to new product development and growing trials. These new additions will be in place and ‘switched on’ ready for season 2025. Bulrush is well-set-up for next year. We will be able to satisfy any seasonal surge in orders and continue to provide the outstanding level of service the industry has come to expect from us.”
