An organic, vegan fertiliser created in Norfolk is proving a hit with gardeners and growers. Daniel Suggitt from PlantGrow tells us more
What is Plantgrow?
PlantGrow is a natural fertiliser which is kind to the environment and made from 100% plants. PlantGrow fertiliser comes in both liquid and solid forms which nurture soils the natural way without the need for chemicals. All products are wildlife safe, organic and vegan.
What is so special about it?
PlantGrow has proved over the last few years how plant ingredients are so much better for soils and plant health than artificial products. Its very easy to use and everyone can see the benefits.
How is it produced?
PlantGrow is produced through a renewable energy process called anaerobic digestion. Plant ingredients grown locally are fed into a sustainable, completely natural process which breaks down organic material in the absence of oxygen. This produces both liquid and solid forms as well as producing electricity.

PlantGrow is a Norfolk product - who are the people behind it?
PlantGrow was formed by Steve and Sarah Suggitt, after seeing results of the material on farmland in Norfolk from the blend of crops they were growing through their agricultural business.
In 2016, Steve’s brother Daniel Suggitt joined the company to introduce PlantGrow as a new horticultural product to the industry.
Where can people buy it?
PlantGrow can be purchased directly and in stores listed on our website.
