Gardener flies in to promote compost

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) used the power of celebrity to promote peat-free compost this week. TVs flying gardener Chris Beardshaw held a compost clinic with visitors to the WRAP recycled garden at Gardeners World Live.

Beardshaw gave hints on greener gardening and recommended peat-free compost. WRAP is keen to raise the profile of compost because of the increased popularity of gardening. A WRAP spokesman said: A quarter of a million people currently hold an allotment and the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners has had more enquiries in the past two years than in the last decade.

The Recycled Garden Tour continues at Hampton Court from July 6-11 and Tatton Park from July 21- 25.
