Fairweather’s unveils the ‘Elixir of Life’ for the garden

Fairweather’s Garden Centre in Beaulieu is disclosing the “Elixir of Life” for the garden, by offering customers its best kept secret for growing healthier and more productive plants. From April a revolutionary new plant food called Compost Tea, which is brewed in a garden shed on site at Fairweather’s, will be available to purchase. The organic plant food, which was previously unavailable to the public, offers a holistic approach to gardening with the benefit of cutting harmful chemical use.
Fairweather’s garden centre and nursery is among the very few UK pioneers to use  Compost Tea, having adopted the holistic approach to commercially growing garden plants from Dutch nurseries in 2001.  
Since this time, Fairweather’s has reduced the amount of chemicals used in growing  crops by 50 per cent, and garden centre owner Patrick Fairweather is advocating that the same reduction may be easily achieved if it is used in the home garden environment.
He says: “Compost Tea can benefit fruit, vegetables, flowering plants and even lawns and one of the most important benefits is a reduction for growers in their exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. At Fairweather’s, we have used Compost Tea for over five years in the wholesale nursery and garden centre and our customers have recognised the benefit in the quality of the plants we sell.
“Now we are recommending that our customers come and try some of the magic liquor for themselves and are offering ready- brewed Compost Tea in recycled milk bottles to feed to their own gardens!”
