International company introduces peat- and plastic-free pot

Jiffy is launching a new sphagnum moss peat-free Jiffy Pot. This latest member of Jiffy Pot range is free from peat and plastic. According to Jiffy, it's ideal for hydroponics, and suited to crops including young plants and trees, herbs and vegetables, soft fruit, and wine grapes.

The company states: "The sphagnum moss peat-free Jiffy Pot is strong and long-lasting, yet it's 100% compostable. It also retains other qualities of the rest of the range:

  • Flexible, robust, and efficient containers
  • Wide range of shapes, sizes, and strips
  • Quick take-off after transplanting
  • Pot-and-all transplantation saves labor and minimizes transplant shock."

Jiffy's Innovation Center set out to create a pot to help meet consumer demand and comply with new laws around peat-free growing solutions.

They add: "Sphagnum moss is an all-natural, renewable resource. The moss is gathered using a unique technology that ensures only part of the living plant is taken. The method returns extracted water to the wetland and leaves plentiful spores for new moss to grow.

At Jiffy, we prioritize the safety, sustainability, and quality of our products and processes. Our production facilities are certified with various ISO certification standards: ISO 22000 for food safety, ISO 14001 for sustainability, and ISO 9001 for quality. All our operations are also compliant with California's Proposition 65. These certifications ensure that the media provided is of the highest quality produced to specifications that allow for optimal results."

For some products and production locations, Jiffy has obtained the quality mark from RHP, the nonprofit European knowledge center for growing media, certifying that raw materials and products meet quality and sustainability standards.
