It was a perfect planting day in spring when a leading name in horticultural products called round to see us.
They needed a new bulb propagation solution. But not just any new bulb propagation solution. This one had to be a lightweight, superabsorbent nonwoven that would manage water uptake and release within a micro-environment.
The challenge was growing on us. So we asked for more details…
The client described it as a semi-permanent lining, with the fabric used to keep seedlings hydrated during early propagation and replicate optimum growth conditions. Planted beneath the surface, it should naturally compost after an initial period of growth.
It sounded like our kind of project, so we waved goodbye to the client, cleared our desks and got dug in straight away.
