The Fast Grow Fertiliser company, a leading Irish supplier of seaweed fertiliser, is expanding into the UK, targeting an eventual 250 stockists.
Since Shane Walsh founded the company in 2015, the Fast Grow name has developed rapidly in Ireland with over a third of Irish garden retailers now stocking the brand. Thanks to increased production capacity, Walsh is now introducing two products – Fast Grow Seaweed Fertiliser and Fast Grow Chicken Manure – to the UK retail market.
Walsh says that while the products have been available to UK gardeners, purchased principally by veg growing enthusiasts, for a while, he is now ready for a full retail launch.
He has hired the services of business consultant Neville Stein to help develop the market. “We had a fantastic response on our initial sales visit picking up over 30 quality customers,” Stein said. “It seems there is a growing interest and demand for seaweed fertiliser and so I am confident that Fast Grow will become a key item stocked by many garden centres.”
Walsh has also commissioned sales agent Bob Haward to represent the company in the east of the UK.
Walsh aims to further develop the Fast Grow brand. “My garden centre customers in Ireland are getting many repeat sales from gardeners who have had great results from using the fertiliser so we are looking at new blends in order to provide gardeners with a range of great fertilisers,” he said.
Both products come in 10kg bags. Minimum order for free UK delivery is 100 bags.
