Steve Reed, Production Director of the Container Division at Wyevale Nurseries, with the Astilbes in the recyclable taupe plant pots

ONE OF THE UK’s leading commercial nurseries is now (March, 2019) using recyclable plant pots for all future retail plants that it’s currently potting.

Wyevale Nurseries has started to phase out its black plastic pots replacing them with taupe coloured pots, supplied by Aeroplas in the West Midlands, in a bid to fight the war on plastic.
