Eco is our favourite word, however it is often confused as so many throw it around and use it incorrectly. We believe that something Eco is a product or plant that has been grown, produced, manufactured in an environmentally sustainable manner that will benefit both the consumer and environment in a way that will not have a negative impact of the systems of the environment. We have and still are building a continuing range of Eco products and plants so that you, the consumer have a choice when it comes to what you buy and what you consume.
We stock a range of organic and Eco fertilisers from companies like Searles (Australian), No Frills (Margaret River), EcoGrowth (Perth) and OCP (Australian) and believe that we now have an Eco option for every product in store that can be used on your garden. A lot of Eco products are now as good if not better than synthetic products that have been on the market for a long time.
Many products are over engineered for the home garden, for instance Eco Oil has HIPPO as an ingredient, put simply this is a pheromone that is secreted by plants when they are under attack from bugs like aphids. This pheromone attracts beneficial insects like lady birds to the plant that is sprayed, the lady birds eat the aphids and their eggs. These products work as both an instant fix and by attracting beneficial insects they also act as long term defensive shield, something a synthetic product would not do.
We test all of the products we chose to stock, staff have the opportunity to try samples on their own gardens so we know how these products work on Perth’s soils.
