S-Chelates are all non-bio accumulative, and boost the biology food chain in the soil from microbes to earthworms.

Soil Association and organic growers shared their feedback with us

We are proud to report that our production team in Stoke-on-Trent passed their first Soil Association ‘in-person’ quality audit post-Covid.

Soil Association approved organic growers of grapes for wine making, hops for beermaking, and brassicas (for eating!) were delighted with the results they achieved with our S-Chelate-O products. Drought conditions with only a third of the average rainfall reduced grape yield but disease resistance and quality held up well with the grapes showing a good response to the S-Chelates in the sap results.

Hops yield actually increased in the drought and the S-Chelate appeared to improve Nitrogen uptake.

Brassicas also responded well and the grower was very pleased.

All three growers are looking forward to using S-Chelate again next season and an organic tomato grower has agreed to run trials.

Calling all gardeners & allotment growers – give us your feedback, please!

2022 has been a year of growth for us as we have marketed our products in several new places. You may have spotted our advertisements in the gardening magazines Kitchen Garden and Garden News, or purchased our products through eBay or on Dobies online garden centre.

These new sales opportunities have brought us to the attention of new and existing gardener and allotment customers who bought our Soil Association Certified for organic use S-Chelate-O Cultiv-8, and S-Chelate 12 Star packs.

We had some great feedback last year but we know this year has been more challenging for all growers including yourselves, and we would love to hear from you. So if you bought our products via Kitchen Garden, Garden News, eBay or Dobies – then please do get in touch to share your feedback with us.
