Hort Science Live well received 

Last autumn we were delighted to welcome over 70 growers to our inaugural Hort Science Live (HSL) event here in Ireland - kindly hosted by Yellow Furze Nurseries, in Co Meath - a leading wholesale suppliers of quality hardy nursery stock. 

At HSL, members of ICL’s highly experienced technical team delivered interesting and thought-provoking content on the key practical themes including transitioning to sustainable growing media, reducing peat without compromising plant quality and the importance of wetting agent technology.

New for 2023 – Osmocote 5  

New for 2023 we have the latest generation, controlled release fertilizer - Osmocote 5.  Delivering super-efficient and effective nutrient release, this new range has been painstakingly developed to overcome the specific nutritional challenges of peat-reduced/free growing media.  We have switched over to the Osmocote 5 range which is now fully available to growers in Ireland.    

For anyone who missed HSL Ireland, you can rewatch a recent Osmocote 5 presentation by Andrew Wilson – ICL Technical Manager for UK & Ireland here>>>  

We look forward to working with you  

Together with my colleagues Andrew Wilson and Stuart Gammage (ICL Technical Manager for Growing Media in the UK & Ireland) - we very much look forward to working with growers in 2023 – helping you transition to a more sustainable future.
