Recycling is a way of life at Whitehall and we encourage our customers to do the same. With a compost bin you can increase your recycling potential.
We endeavour to limit the amount of water we consume as a business and offer a range of products for you to save water and limit your useage.
By recycling your fruit & vegetable peelings, grass cuttings and the rest of your garden waste you can produce well-rotten garden compost, which can be used as a soil improver to enhance plant growth, great on a vegetable patch.
Water Butts are an essential for your garden.
Almost 10,000 litres on average of rainwater falls on our house roofs each year so, by collecting it in a water butt, you have a ready source of water that can help keep your garden looking lush and green.
A water butt can be connected to a downpipe so that it collects rainwater from your gutters. If you are using a downpipe, you will also need an overflow pipe or a rain diverter to redirect water into the butt. Once it’s full, water flows down the drainpipe.
A gutter filter will also keep out unwanted debris.
Health & Wellbeing
We offer many different products that benefit your health, encourage wildlife and generally make the environment we live in a better place.
Whitehall Garden Centre has a policy of sourcing wood based products from suppliers who ensure the timber used is accredited to FSC standards (Forest Stewardship Council) which ensures for
every tree that is cut down one is planted.
Where available the FSC logo will be displayed along with their certification number.
Whitehall Garden Centre shares public concern in reducing peat use to minimise the effects of global peat extraction on peat bog habitats. Many viable peat alternatives exist which are either completely peat-free or of reduced peat content.
Our suppliers have improved labelling and information on their packaging, enabling our customers to make informed decisions about peat alternatives when purchasing growing medium.
Our commitment is to:
Provide trialled and tested viable peat alternatives.
Sell growing medium products supplied by reputable and responsible companies.
Ensure information is available so that customers can make informed decisions when purchasing growing medium products.
Stock a range of high quality growing medium that is fit for every gardening purpose and meets government guidelines.
