Vegetarian and Vegan Gardening

There are so many reasons to start gardening, and if you are unsure where to start, you could consider a garden without the use of animal products.

Animal products are commonly used in gardening in everything from manure to fertiliser. Westland offers a wide range of products to ensure there is something for every garden and every gardener, so if you are looking for vegetarian or vegan products to use in the garden there are a number of options you can choose from.

Compost

There are many composts available within the Westland range which are suitable for vegan gardeners, which contain conventional fertilisers.

These include:

There are also natural composts such as New Horizon BIO3 which launched this year. This is the result of 18 years of research and £35million investment to produce our best ever compost, and just so happens to also be peat-free, made from natural fertilisers and sustainable ingredients. 

Jack’s Magic gives you a choice within the natural sector too. This traditional, dark and rich peat based recipe contains 100% natural ingredients making it a favourite with many gardeners.

 

Plant Feeds

The following traditional plant feeds contain no animal by products and are therefore vegan friendly:

  • Growmore is a great general purpose feed for use all around your garden. It has a balance of nutrients to ensure even stimulation of growth in all plant parts, which means you will get lots of fruit and flowers.
  • Sulphate of Potash is a fast acting ready to use granular feed, for bigger healthier fruit and flowers. It has great disease and drought resistance and is ideal for all fruit trees, bushes and flowers.
  • Sulphate of Iron is a ready to use granular ericaceous booster to provide strong root growth with richer green foliage. It acidifies the root zone , making it prefer for ericaceous plants.
  • Superphosphate i a great root vegetable booster for strong and healty rooting to improve fruit and vegetable quality.

 

There is also a large Gro-Sure feed range, which includes liquids, granular and soluble formats that are all suitable for vegan gardening along with Westland Big Tom Tomato Feed.
