Better Growing Limited was established in 1991 on the outskirts of Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland and it has a combined experience spanning almost 50 years which started as a small family company supplying potting soil and substrates for the local amateur gardening market. In recent years it has further expanded creating its own comprehensive range of hobby gardener composts and developing sales into the professional grower market, supplying custom made substrate for specific commercial grower needs of the highest quality using modern and technical machinery, taking into consideration the individual requirements, management and local climate.
Since 2000 Better Growing has ongoing investments of over £2m ($4 million dollars) in rebuilding a new factory complete with the introduction of two extra fully automated production lines, which combine with the original production lines to produce an average of 250,000+ cubic meters per annum of mixed potting soil, substrate and peat moss, with a workforce of 35 operatives across the business. With peat deposits in three separate locations in Ireland of about 600 hectares and a growing workforce, Better Growing aim to supply compost to the trade and public for many years to come and strive to be the leading compost supplier across Europe in the very near future.
Today Better Growing is at the leading edge of production techniques creating consistent quality products for garden centres, multiple store groups, professional growers and important world export markets. The company has also been awarded the significant ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance registration to underpin its real commitment to assured quality and service levels. We have also invested heavily in our brand and overall marketing, in particular our range of retail packaging which has received rave reviews across the industry. With a superb range of signage, banners and posters to accompany our products, we hope you agree we offer the whole package.
