Durstons: Hit the right mark next season

As the 2023 season winds down and range reviews are in full effect, Durston Garden Products highlights its hero products, with plenty of time to get orders in for 2024.


For retailers keen to hone their growing media offer and stimulate sales in the category, look no further than Durstons’ best sellers; products that are already proving firm favourites amongst UK garden centres.


Multi-purpose to drive volume sales 

Durston’s range of Multi-purpose Composts is a staple line for its retail customers, many of which swear by the unique ‘GRO BOOST’ additive – exclusive to Durston’s - for providing plants with a long-lasting nutrient boost and helping to ensure fantastic growing performance.  Dan Durston said: “Our collection includes Multi-Purpose Compost, Multi-Purpose Compost with John Innes, and Multi- Purpose Compost Peat Free, allowing retailers to offer a premium product that provides excellent nutrient content and delivers consistently impressive results. Garden centres tell us that the growing success achieved with Durstons’ products keeps their customers coming back for more.”


Value for money

Durston’s Manor Farm Multi-Purpose Compost is a firm favourite with garden retailers, who hail the range as an excellent value multi-purpose compost that promotes healthy growth for all plants and vegetables. “Competitively priced and packed full of all the essential nutrients needed to help cuttings, seeds, young plants, flowers, and vegetables become established and grow to full maturity. Manor Farm is the ideal solution for those new gardeners or those wanting to minimise spend without compromising on quality.”


Boosting the offering is Manor Farm Peat-Free Multi- Purpose Compost, which allows stockists to offer a peat-free compost at a great-value price point, making greener products more accessible to a wider cross section of consumers.


Helping gardeners make better choices

Dan Durston concluded by saying: “Growing media is an overwhelming category for some gardeners. Our stockists love that, with our products, they can present gardeners with a quality comprehensive compost offering that cuts through the confusion, is suitable for all gardening uses, and can satisfy all customers, whatever their expectations.


“As the new season starts to build momentum, we will keep garden retailers’ tills ringing and their compost sales soaring. Durstons prides itself on outstanding service, as well as top-quality products, so it’s not too late to get your orders and give your compost offer the boost it needs for what we all hope will be a fantastic gardening season
