REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE
The harsh reality that our planet is in crisis has had a profound effect on us all. At Wildfire Flowers, we are taking an innovative approach in looking after the health of our immediate environment.
BIOCHAR AND SOIL HEALTH
We are heavily invested in using organic compost created from our own waste.
We recycle the prunings and rejected flowers into nutrient-rich fertiliser.
Using the biochar method, we burn our biomass at oxygen-reduced, high temperatures, creating a pure carbon which remains in the soil without releasing CO2. It also improves soil aeration and helps retain nutrients.
Using nature's excavators to feed and oxygenate the earth.
With 15 tonnes of soil per acre per annum passing through their bodies, red wriggler worms (E. foetida) are essential to improving soil health through natural methods.
Not do their wormcastings aerate the soil, they also provide nutrients to create strong and healthy plants.
With our rainwater harvesting and solar power plant, we are reducing our impact on the environment
We collect rainwater off our greenhouse roofs for storage in our own reservoir. Not only does it make us more self-sufficient, the rain water has proved to be more beneficial for plant health.
We also use hydroponic irrigation to recycle our water.
Over the past twenty years we have had a dedicated tree-planting programme
As well as planting trees, we have allowed any fallow land to be used for grazing.
