Ireland: 140 exhibitors and 1500 visitors at the Garden Leisure and Amenity Show

The 5th Garden Leisure and Amenity Show (GLAS), which is Ireland's only horticultural and amenity trade show, was held on the 23rd of July at the City West Convention Centre, Dublin. Over 140 exhibitors and 1500 visitors attended the show.

Following extensive judging of products submitted by over 30 companies, GLAS show judges Paddy Gleeson and Gerry Daly named BioLift Plant Care from XL Horticulture as the Best New Product at GLAS 2015. BioLift Plant Care and BioLift Turf Treatment are a liquid source of Species Rich Diverse (SRD) biology which is derived from Vermi compost that stimulates plant growth and suppresses soil borne diseases like phytopthora and fusarium.

Commenting on the product, judge Gerry Daly said “This is a completely natural, safe and easy to use product which delivers large numbers of soil microflora that boosts root action, and supresses soil pest and pathogenic activity. It is a sustainable product with no negative impact on plants or the environment. It is a good example of the continuing move towards bio-active solutions in amenity and ornamental horticulture.”

The product is manufactured by XL ProBio and is currently used by many of the UK’s leading football, rugby and golf clubs, as well as several of the large hardy nursery stock producers.

It is distributed in the UK by regional distributors who can be found on the XL ProBio website , in Germany and the Benelux by Evergreen Golf Gmbh email and in Ireland by Keating Amenity Solutions Ltd, email
