Lindum and British Flora Launch Reedfelt.
By Carol Dutton
Lindum Turf has joined forces with British Flora, the U.K.'s largest aquatic and wild flower nursery to produce the company's latest innovation REEDFELT.
A combination of Lindum's Grassfelt technology using a biodegradable felt made from recycled British textiles, and British Flora's high quality reeds, REEDFELT provides a lighter and more sustainable alternative to traditional coir blankets.
Aimed mainly at landscapers, local authorities and environmental agencies, REEDFELT can be used for the stabilisation of waterways and wild margins as well as water filtration treatment. British Flora whose core business is bioengineering, specialise in the production of native reed species, collecting seed and plant material from all over the country. "In this way we can offer a wide variety of reed species, or grow plants for a specific project," explains Glyn Onione, consultant and MD with the 20-year-old company. "This joint venture is a symbiosis of our horticultural expertise and Lindum's unique technology."
Stephen Fell, MD at Lindum (specialist sports-turf growers since 1984) agrees. "REEDFELT is the product of two different companies with expertise in different areas," he declares. "It fits in well with government thinking on sustainability and recycling."
