Rijnbeek is one of the first Perennial nurseries in the Netherlands and Europe committed to being peat-free.
For over 9 years we have been leading the way in developing peat-free technologies for perennial production.
All the plants we grow are potted in our peat-free compost.
Peat is non-renewable resource that is harvested from bogs and wetlands which is then used extensively in horticulture as a soil conditioner and growing medium for plants.
However, the extraction of peat has significant environmental impacts, including habitat destruction of sensitive ecosystems of peat rich lands, greenhouse gas emissions through the release of carbon from the largest carbon stores of the planet.
