Carbon Gold showcases new biochar-based home gardening products at Glee


Carbon Gold, the leading supplier of biochar products to professional growers and tree care specialists around the world, will officially launch its new range of products for home-growers and gardeners at Glee.


2020 saw a surge in demand for Carbon Gold biochar – a high-carbon form of charcoal that is used in soil to boost plant health and vitality – as people discovered a renewed love of gardening during lockdown.


Until now, Carbon Gold’s 100% peat-free, FSC certified and Soil Association approved biochar products have only been available in bulk sizes, tailored for the needs of commercial crop growers and tree care professionals. Now, the company is responding to increased demand with a new product range offering its best-selling enriched biochar products in gardener-friendly pack sizes.



It includes all purpose compost, seed compost, fertiliser, soil improver, tree soil improver, lawn improver and Carbon Gold’s organic ‘rocket fuel’, substrate rejuvenator, Biology Blend. Visitors to the show will be offered the opportunity to get hands-on with the products and discuss the science behind them with Carbon Gold’s team of in-house experts.

Biochar improves soil and plant health, reduces the impact of pests and diseases and is better for nature because plants require less watering. Ideal for every task in every garden, including containers, you get great results fast, from better fruit and veg to bigger, longer-lasting flowers.


Plants grown in Carbon Gold biochar have been shown to be more resilient in the face of a wide range of environmental factors, diseases and pests, including drought, honey fungus, root mat, ash dieback and replant disease. Biochar is also so high in carbon that using it lowers your carbon footprint: for every kilo you put in the ground, three kilos of harmful CO2 are permanently sequestered from the atmosphere. 


Mike Hartshorn, Managing Director of Carbon Gold, comments: “Glee is the perfect place for us to host the official launch of Carbon Gold’s gardener-friendly product range. It will be the first time that people can come and connect with us face-to-face and get hands-on with our new products.


“Commercial and professional growers have been using our products for years and now we want to grow our retail-based distribution so that everyone can benefit from the power of biochar.” 


You’ll find Carbon Gold in the GIMA Business Village (6F17)
