A natural plant fertiliser firm is celebrating an accolade from Which? consumer magazine.
Which? researchers planted out patio pots, testing different “natural” options to see whether they gave plants the boost they need compared to conventional fertiliser products.
After tests, it recommended two – one of which was PlantGrow Natural Fertiliser, which is made by a farmer-owned business operating across Norfolk and Suffolk.
The firm, which is owned by Steve and Sarah Suggitt of Attleborough, and is run by Steve’s brother Daniel Suggitt, makes the fertiliser from plant material which is a by-product of the anaerobic digestion process.

“Our plants grew and flowered well and gave us a good balance of blooms, with the lobelia, petunia and geranium all making neat, healthy plants that created a colourful display.”

Daniel Suggitt said it was “great news”. “We are very pleased with this for obvious reasons and this will help in the ongoing battle with garden centres to offer better alternatives to chemicals,” he added.
“We are lucky enough to have many well known gardeners and experts already endorse the brand so this gives further credibility.”
