RocketGro expands portfolio with exciting new launches


Game-changing peat-free brand RocketGro debuted 11 exciting new additions at Glee, taking its portfolio to 24 products for the 2024 season and providing garden retailers with a comprehensive offer of peat-free growing media and associated products.


The sustainable Somerset manufacturer – with an eco-story that’s hard to beat – launched a brand-new range of liquid plant feed, alongside 6 new bagged products; all of which garnered a great response from the industry.


RocketGro has plugged a gap in the market and created further opportunities around organic growing with its launch of five quality liquid concentrate feeds offered at a competitive price point and designed to sell through fast. 

Supplied in 1.5 litre bottles (RRP £6.99), including 50% extra free during 2023/2024, the liquid plant feed range, which was shortlisted for a New Product Award, comprises: Tomato Food, Rose & Shrub Plant Food, All-Purpose Plant Food, Ericaceous Plant Food, and Lawn Feed.


The new range has already secured several major listings and is expected to fly out the door in 2024.


Meanwhile, the 6 new additions to RocketGro’s bagged offering comprise Premium Bark Chunks, Farmyard Manure, Rose Compost, Chicken Manure, Top Soil, and a 50-litre bag of RocketGro Multi- Purpose Compost.


The manures and new speciality composts contain bio-active microbes and feed plants for up to three months, whilst the Premium Bark Chunks offer a superior finish, with quality bark pieces and absolutely no shredded cheap wood! As well as being decorative, the bark chunks also improve soil biodiversity and are pet and child friendly.


These exciting new products join RocketGro’s existing organic, peat-free line-up – including its flagship Magic Mulch, the UK’s biggest Tomato & Veg planter, and impressive River Cottage-endorsed collection of composts – meaning RocketGro can now provide garden retailers with a truly comprehensive offer.


All products are chemical free, 100% organic approved, British grown, sourced and manufactured, and are the by-product of renewable energy production. Packaging is also 100% recyclable. Vibrant packaging across the range, with impactful imagery and clear

messaging, is guaranteed to catch the eye of consumers in store.


RocketGro has teamed up with EP Barrus and now benefits from an increased number of territory representatives – currently 21 in number – who will provide garden centres across the UK with hands-on support for the ongoing sales of RocketGro products.


With pre-season orders going strong, RocketGro assures retailers it has stock ready to

go and has capacity to meet an uptick in demand for 2024.

If you want to learn more about RocketGro or are keen to discuss adding its product portfolio into your 2024 offering, please contact Toby Thomas ( /07936 928 981) or Andy Abraham (andy@ / 07446 937902).
