ecofective® brand is poised for growth at Glee

Leading environmentally-friendly plant care brand ecofective® will feature its rapidly expanding portfolio at Glee 2019, showcasing the latest generation of natural feed, weed and pest control products that cater for the UK’s growing band eco-friendly consumers and organic gardeners.


Ecofective® has experienced strong demand throughout 2019, with sales driven by consumers seeking effective green alternatives to conventional fertilisers and pesticides. The retail ban on metaldehyde-based slug pellets has strengthened the market for natural slug controls, with the company poised to showcase its new ecofective® Slug Killer – supplied in a recycled container and containing FERRIMAX® bait.


ecofective®’s Head of Sales, Nigel Thompson, said: “Sales of natural pest control products and chemical-free fertilisers have performed well this season, with the fashion for grow-your own continuing to gather pace, while rising numbers of organic and vegan gardeners are demanding effective plant care products that are kind to the environment and to wildlife. Ecofective® will build on this growth at Glee 2019.”


Created by leading plant technology firm Sipcam, the ecofective® Child & Pet Safe range is safe to use in gardens that are home to youngsters and animals. Used by professional growers and adapted for retail, the pioneering formulations behind the brand are safe to use around beneficial insects, including bees.


Glee will provide the ideal platform to showcase the company’s Royal Horticultural Society-approved RHS Garden Care range. Endorsed by the UK’s biggest and most influential gardening charity, the line-up includes RHS Weedkiller, RHS Moss Killer, RHS Bug and Mildew Control, RHS Path, Patio and Decking Cleaner and RHS Slug Killer.
