Bord Na Mona imageChelsea Mix enriched all purpose compost has been launched into the garden retail market by Bord na Móna UK following its sponsorship of silver gilt winning Vital Earth The Night Sky Garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Until now Chelsea Mix has been exclusively available to garden designers, Harry and David Rich, the youngest ever team to create a full scale Chelsea show garden. Chelsea Mix was highly commended at GLEE in the new product awards.

It will now be marketed to consumers under the Vital Earth brand as a promotional product in the coming season to coincide with Chelsea 2015. It will be available for trade pre-order from January 2015 to end-May only, for delivery into store in time for RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The 50L bag with an RRP of £5.99 features pictures of the winning Chelsea garden and will be made available as a two for £10

David Rich, who at 23 is the youngest ever garden designer to present a show garden at Chelsea carried off a silver gilt and an avalanche of plaudits working with his elder brother Harry and the backing of Bord na Móna’s Vital Earth peat-free compost brand. The winning entry, an inspirational landscape entitled Vital Earth The Night Sky Garden not only delighted the Chelsea judges but attracted rave reviews from the Chelsea audience including celebrities, national and international media and even a show garden chat with Prince Harry.
